What Is Corned Beef?
Corned Beef is an inexpensive cut of beef such as a brisket or round roast that has been brined and seasoned for around 10 days. You can do it yourself if you have the patience. The homemade taste really is worth waiting for. The best of the best is to use beef that has been grass-fed and raised locally for a mouthwatering experience.
Corned Beef gets its the flavor from the spices in the brine. Brown sugar, garlic, kosher salt pickling spices are added to water along with a pink curing salt (for preservation). The brine is then placed in two plastic bags, the roast is added to the brine and put in a container. The meat is kept cold for ten days, rotating the meat to make sure both sides of the roast are well seasoned by turning it every day.
Home Made Corned Beef Hash Recipe
One of the great things about this dish is most of the ingredients are already cooked. With just a small amount of preparation, food can be on the table in less than 20 minutes.
Finely chopped, leftover cooked corned beef
Chopped cooked potatoes
Finely chopped cooked cabbage
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh parsley
In a skillet, on a low-temperature burner, add the butter. As the butter melts, place the chopped onions in the skillet, and cook until they are soft and translucent.
Add the potatoes, cabbage, and corned beef to the onions in the pan and stir. Then cover the bottom of the skillet with the ingredients and increase the burner temperature to medium-high.
Using a flat metal spatula, press the hash mixture to the bottom of the pan and hold. You want to hear sizzling. That sound lets you know the hash mixture is browning. Lift up a bit of the mixture to check for browning. If the color is right, turn the mixture to let the other side brown, continuing to press with the spatula. Remove from pan when ready. Add salt, pepper, and chopped parsley to the hash, and serve.
If serving for breakfast, cook an egg your favorite way, and serve with the hash.
