Corned Beef Hash

Just in time for Sunday, well, OK, a little late for this Sunday breakfast idea, but still valid.
Corned Beef Hash
I've been on a voyage of discovery lately -
 in my freezer, and have been finding all kinds of foods, I froze thinking I could/would use them at a later date.

 I really hate to throw away a lot of it.  In fact I have a large container in the freezer right now labeled Stone Soup, I'll get to that in a later post though.   One of the items I uncovered was a small Corned Beef I'd made a few months ago, and really, it needed to be eaten.

So, I made us some Corned Beef Hash today.

Recipe: Corned Beef Hash
This makes about 4 servings.

1 small Corned Beef, (mine was just under a pound, cut into dice)
4 potatoes, cooked and cut into dice (this works very well with white or red potatoes)
1 onion, diced
1-2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Cook potatoes,

dice and set aside.   I didn't have any cooked potatoes, so I hurried up and threw some in my handy dandy Ziploc cooking bag, threw them into the microwave for 7 minutes, then took them out and peeled them.   You can leave the peel on if you like, personally I like the peel.

Cook the diced onion until translucent.   Set aside for a few minutes, while you brown the potatoes a little.
Then add them into the potatoes.

After they've had a chance to brown up a little and cook some more, then you add the diced corned beef to the pan.

Let it cook together and get a good brown going.   The last minute or so of cooking, add some salt, pepper and drizzle about 1-2 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce over the whole thing.   Stir it and serve.

Add a fried egg or two on top, and you have a hearty breakfast or a light dinner.   There was actually much more than we could eat at one go, so I froze the rest.   Another easy meal for me in the future.    This is one of those great recipes in that you can stretch it by adding a few more potatoes and another onion.   Never hurts to have something like this in your recipe arsenal.
