My love for homemade corn beef hash knows no bounds. Forget the canned stuff that resembles dog food; nothing beats the aroma and flavor of a freshly prepared batch. It’s a simple dish, requiring little more than browning the ingredients to perfection. Using leftover corn beef from a memorable meal adds an extra layer of satisfaction to each bite.

NOW, for the ingredients. Start with real corn beef, either freshly made or from the deli, but please steer clear of the canned variety. For potatoes, use the Yukon Gold for their ability to hold shape, though russet potatoes work just fine. Ensure the potatoes are cooked ahead of time to streamline the cooking process. As for seasoning, a dash of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder does the trick. Using fresh grated garlic and onion salt enhances the flavor. For those seeking a kick, a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes will do wonders.

2) Add the chopped corn beef, garlic powder, and onion powder to the skillet. Then add the vegetables and fresh grated garlic. If you like add the optional green peppers Add them in when you add the onions and potatoes to the skillet. Stir everything together and then use the back of a spatula to press the mixture into an even layer. Cook the hash for 3-5 minutes until the bottom is browned and crispy.

3) Flip the hash over (crispy side up) and add the rest of the butter. Press everything into an even layer again and cook for 3-5 minutes. Then, continue flipping, pressing, and cooking until the hash is browned the way you like it. Transfer the corn beef hash to plates, sprinkle a little chopped parsley on top, and serve warm with your favorite sides. A great way to serve corn beef hash is sunny-side-up or over easy eggs and toast or English muffin.

Pairing a hearty breakfast with fine wines may sound unconventional, but truly, it’s a game-changer. Skip the usual Bloody Marys or Mimosas and opt for something extraordinary. A great selection from our Wine of The Month Club would be the Linda Horn Cabernet Franc for its bold red profile, complementing the richness of the corn beef hash. Alternatively, the More Than Muse Sauvignon Blanc offers a refreshing contrast, elevating the dish with its crisp notes. Both selections enhance the dining experience without overpowering the flavors.
