Smoky Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash - Hover


  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons neutral oil, separated
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 poblano pepper, diced (about ¾ cup)
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into ½ -inch dice (about 3 cups)
  • 2 cups diced corned beef
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 eggs, room temperature (optional)



  1. If frozen, defrost corned beef overnight in the refrigerator. Remove from packaging and rub contents of spice packet onto meat.
  2. Place spice-rubbed corned beef into a large pot. Pour in water to cover beef. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer. Check the meat occasionally while cooking. Add water if necessary. Cook until fork tender and beef has reached a minimum internal cooking temperature of 160°F. A three-pound brisket will take approximately three hours. Carve across the grain, or prepare as you need for a recipe, and serve.
  3. Heat ¼ cup of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, peppers and potatoes; saute for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  1. After 15 minutes, reduce heat to medium, add the corned beef, cover the skillet with a tight fitting lid; steam for 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Remove cover; add salt, pepper, smoked paprika, dried thyme; stir to combine. Remove from heat, set aside.
  3. To cook the eggs: heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the pan; let eggs cook on one side for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Serve hash with fried egg on top.
