You Don't Have to be Irish!

Did you make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day and you're not sure what to do with left over corned beef? I had been trying to find a recipe for good homemade corned beef hash before I came to my senses and thought, how hard can it be to make corned beef hash?  It's not rocket science.  So, I came up with my own recipe and you know what? It's pretty darn good, if I do say so myself and I think our guests will enjoy having it for breakfast, maybe you will too! And p.s., you don't have to be Irish to enjoy corned beef and it doesn't have to be St. Patrick's Day either!

Bought at Costco, cuz all good things come from Costco.  Look for a nice lean piece.
Use the seasoning packet that comes with the meat, slowly boil/simmer for about 3 hours
Important note:  when you slice corned beef you must slice with the grain of the meat or it will be terribly tough
Chop.  This is the whole piece (about 3.5 pounds).  There is a lot of shrinkage involved.
Fry (or to be more health conscious, "saute") cubed potatoes with chopped yellow onions in olive oil, salt and pepper.  Add in the corned beef for just a few minutes as it is already cooked and just needs to mix in and get hot.
It's hearty, homemade and delicious!  You can serve it with eggs, any style, you like!
Baked eggs with asparagus and cheese served with homemade corned beef hash - Yum!
