Early one morning, as I was reorganizing our big freezer in the garage, I came across a Corned Beef Brisket. It got me to thinking about breakfast and Corned Beef Hash.
So naturally, I thawed out the corned beef. Then early the next morning, I decided to cook the corned beef in my Instant Pot. I had every intention to cook the corned beef, chop a few potatoes and whip up hash for my breakfast after the guy headed off to work. So as the garage door closed behind them, I started the corned beef cooking.
But then the guilt crept in – making corned beef hash just for me was selfish. Kiddo and Hubby both liked a good corned beef hash. Well, I reasoned, I’ve already pushed the start button. I’m committed to make the corned beef. That might be, but it didn’t mean I needed to complete the hash. So once the beef had cooked, it was cubed and put away for the weekend.
So glad I did. Love it when we can enjoy a tasty breakfast together. Hope you do the same.

Note: Corned Beef can be made a day or two in advance. Store in a container with the cooking liquid. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil pan with shortening or bacon drippings for added flavor. Add Corned Beef, reserve liquid and brown corned beef pieces for 5 minutes. Add frozen potatoes, spread out evenly. Pour cooking liquid from corned beef into the skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat for 6 minutes undisturbed.

While the hash cooks, fry eggs as desired.
