    I often make corned beef hash. I do two different versions. One is quite dry and the corned beef cubes remain intact, stir fried in a wok and the other is cooked like a casserole so that the corned beef breaks up into a rich gravy/sauce.

    I'm lazy. Boil and then drain & mash the potato in the saucepan, add chopped corned beef and mash a bit more. Pour some gravy over it, and maybe throw some peas in and, when I'm on my own - eat it straight out of the saucepan. Yummy. And minimal washing up.

    This is how I do it except I also cook some finely chopped onion in butter and add this to the mash too. Yum!

    I do yet a different version using diced pre-boiled potatoes (especially nice with new ones or whole baby salad potatoes still in their skins) then stir-fry these in a little olive oil with a chopped onion ... add the cubed corned beef and a tin of baked beans and heat through.

    Sometimes I'll do something similar but layer the corned beef/onion/baked bean mix with thinly sliced potatoes in a casserole dish, top with grated cheese and pop in the oven for 30-40 mins

    Yummm I could just eat that right now as it happens

    Cooked mashed potatoes, fried onions, mashed (smashed to flakes) corned beef, bit of grated cheese. Mix together, top with sliced tomatoes and more grated cheese, heat in oven for as long as it takes.

    Serve with baked beans.

    Ohhh I make it totally different to this. I boil an onion, potato's, carrots and a small amount of cabbage together in a pan, with an oxo. When it is nearly cooked I add the tin of corned beef. Sometimes I also put it in a oven proof dish and put a pastry lid on. mmmmmmmmmmm making me hungry now lol

    I am a veggie now but have fond memories of corned beef hash pie that my Nan used to make.

    She simply mashed the potatoes as usual and added a tin of corned beef and mashed again. Then she'd put the mix in pastry and make a pie. She always kept back a bit of the potato & corned beef mixture as a base for the gravy. Served with loads of veggies.

    If we were lucky enough to have any left the next day we'd slice the top layer of pastry off, add a dollop of brown sauce and eat cold.

    aaaaahhhhh, aren't memories luverly The thought of opening a tin of corned beef makes me gag but I've gone all teary eyed at the same time 'cos it reminds me of my Nan :rolleyes:

    I just do sliced potatoes, diced onion, chopped corned beef and gravy, bung in pan and cook until soft.

    Found a portion in freezer when defrosting yesterday - so had for lunch. Love it with pickled red cabbage or day old with a fried egg. Yummmmmm

    But Squeaky, the best bit is the crunchy topping when done in the oven or under the grill :rolleyes:

    Try a variation on a theme, pre cook a chopped up onion, melt some dripping in a pan and put in onion and sliced potato and pepper (no salt), put the lid on the pan and give it a good shake so the dripping coats the potato, then put a veggi stock cube in a very small amount of water and pour it down the side of the pan, put the lid on and turn down the heat, give the pan a couple of shakes whilst the potato is cooking, then they are soft and slushy turn off the heat and put in a tin of chopped up corned beef, put the lid back on the pan and leave for about 10 minutes, then serve........ a variation on stovies I learnt to cook when we were living in Scotland. It was a Monday washday dish, served with brown sauce and thick slices of bread and butter. I usually serve it with baked beans with most of the liquor poured out.

    Peel and dice about 2-3 lbs potatoes, put in a pan with a chopped onion, couple of carrots. Add a stock cube and pour over boiling water. Cook till soft, add pinch mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste. (I like brown sauce in ours.) Add the diced corned beef at the end so it stays cubed. If you like it mixed in just keep stirring till it breaks up. If you like a lot of corned beef use the whole tin, if not, use half and freeze the rest for another day.

    Takes about 20 mins, start to finish, it's not called "mile-a-minute" stew for nothing!
