In my mind, there is no reason why corned beef isn’t available in the meat case all year round. It is such a seasonal thing around March but I think retailers are getting the hint.

I used to have to wait until March to find it in the store. This year I found it in January and I was quite excited about that discovery! I’m going to be watching for it to come on sale and stock up my freezer so we can enjoy corned beef dishes year around.

Recently, when I saw the leftover corned beef in the refrigerator, I imagined that a skillet of cabbage, corned beef, and red potatoes would be tasty. I didn’t realize this would be so delicious that I would be craving it the very next day.

My whole family enjoyed this meal and I can see making this dish a tradition each time I cook corned beef. That is, if I can stash enough leftovers to make it.

Corned Beef Hash with cabbage is a dish that works for any meal, any time of day. Our favorite is for breakfast.

Corned Beef and Potatoes

Diced potatoes are browned crispy in a little bit of butter or bacon grease. If you use red potatoes and dice them small they will fry up in about 10 minutes.

Once the potatoes are crispy, yet still tender, remove them from the heat and saute the onions for 2-3 minutes. As they start to soften add the cabbage stirring to combine. Cover with a lid and cook until the cabbage starts to slightly wilt.

Add the potatoes and corned beef to the skillet, stir and keep on the heat for just a minute or two. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. I serve it with an over-easy egg on top, that no one can resist!

The smokiness of the salmon combines perfectly with the tangy horseradish sauce and the warm skillet of potatoes and eggs.

Crispy onions, tender potatoes, fresh bell peppers, and mushrooms create a mouthwatering hash that is hearty and filling for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Crispy browned hash browns and crisp-tender asparagus with plenty of bacon and a fried egg on top. That’s basically my idea of breakfast heaven.

The possibilities are endless with this Crispy Onion, Red Potato, Pepper and Mushroom Hash, or the Potato, Red Pepper, Black and White Bean Hash.

Try Sweet Potato, Bell Pepper, Onion and Sausage Hash with Beet Greens or Bacon, Potato and Summer Vegetable Hash next time you’re looking for something new.

Half a box of pasta, a pound of sausage, and some green cabbage that was tucked in the fridge added up to a winning last-minute meal a few weeks ago. It was such a hit with my family that I decided to make it again and write up the recipe to share with you all.

    Mmmmmmm….. I wish I had a big plate of that hash right now! Love it when you can just throw stuff into a skillet and be done with it!

    I corn my own beef — amazing flavor!! I always make sure I have a lean piece and plenty leftover for hash. We love carrots and lots of onion to go with the cabbage and potatoes. I have never used bacon grease and I think I will start using your recipe when I make my next corned beef hash. Sounds like a tasty change to me. Thank you!
