If, like me, you have a couple of cans of corned beef in the house, you’re probably wondering what to do with them. Sure, you could put it all between slices of bread with sliced gherkin, tomato, mustard and whatever else is to hand. That’s a nice snack. Wouldn’t want to serve it up to anybody though.
Hot Corned beef hash with fried potatoes and egg… that’s the way to do it.
We’re going through tough times pretty much everywhere at the moment and corned beef is a cheap and widely-available ingredient with a long-ass shelf life. So, in the pursuit of make the most of what we have, here are the best ways to make corned beef hash plus a few more unusual corned beef creations.

2. Corned Beef Egg Fried Rice
As well as corned beef you probably have a good supply of rice or even cooked rice leftover from another meal. Turns out corned beef fried rice is a winner, a close second to the established corn beef hash. If your rice already cooked, this takes minutes to make.

5. Spicy Corned Beef Hash with Chorizo
Chorizo is an amazingly versatile ingredient, as we’ve covered in another post. You use about 3 times the amount of corned beef to each part of chorizo here, but that’s plenty to give this dish a spice and texture boost.

A more sophisticated, spicier corned beef hash from Delia Smith in the UK. She doesn’t use any corned beef at all in this recipe but if you’re short of chorizo it’s not the end of the world if you make it go further using corned beef.
