Corned beef hash Fri, 04/11/03 10:21 AM (permalink)
Hi all, I am new to the forum..and I can't speak for prior posts. But I would like to take this opportunity to open a discussion on my favorite breakfast food. Corned beef hash.
Any good reccomendations for corned beef has locations, recipes?
The best I've ever had was in Amherst, MA where I went to college. It was a small breakfast shop called Annies?....so good!

    I have had corned beef hash and I like, but unfortunately being from the South, we don't have that much down here. I have bought some of the canned stuff in the grocery store, but it is just not the same.

      One of the great places for corned beef hash is[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=6']The Laurel Diner[/url] just off I-84 between exits 14 and 15 in Connecticut. A bonus of eating there is that when you're done, you can drive just about five miles for donut dessert at Phillips Diner.

      Out West, my favorite is in Santa Fe at [url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=1386']Pasqual's[/url]:

          wow Michael...I must say that pic looks awesome. You know corned beef hash is good when it's got serious chunks of corned beef in it like that!

            My favorite was also homemade at the Friendly Toast in Portsmouth,NH.
            I have been told that the turkey hash at Kelly's Diner in Somerville,MA is also homemade.

              DaveM,

              I was just about to recommend the Friendly Toast!!!! That place is great! Good hash, Anadama bread and those buttery homefries...
              Good call!

                    Not quite corned beef, but great roast beef hash can be found at Wollensky's Grill in NYC. Served with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, it's a bit high-brow, but excellent. The meat is the dry-aged cap from the rib steaks and prime rib its next door sister Smith and Wollensky sells...

                      Good topic 577!
                      First off, I can't believe "jessicazee", a fellow Milwaukeean(?)
                      hasn't beat me to this.(By the way, she is batting a thousand on her recommendations so far!)

                      Anyways, there is a great place for corned beef hash here in Milwaukee that happens to be right next door to jessiczee's A+ rated Ozpies(Love that place!). The place of which I speak I speak is Benji's on Oakland Ave. in Shorewood.
                      Home made, great, neighborhood sit down deli.
                      http://www.mkemenus.com/menus/benjis/specialentree.html
                      Please try it if you are in our town!

                        Last nights mashed potatoes mixed with fried onions, tinned Hereford corned beef all smushed up and panfried in a non-stick skillet till crispy brown. About 6 slices of buttered toast, H.P sauce and a cold beer. The only other thing you need after this is a nap.

                          In Berkeley, I find that the best corned beef hash is actually the "red flannel hash" at Rick and Anne's. Amazing! I lived in CT for a while and seem to remember seeing "red flannel hash" on diner menus there... is it a regional thing that I am lucky to find in California?

                            Corned beef hash is my favorite eating breakfast out food and I have tried it in many places. Favorite if from Harners Bakery in North Aurora, Il. The bakery if wonderful but they have a full restaurant as well and a beautiful view of the Fox River. Even though we are a hour west of Chicago, the Harner family farms abd raises their own meat. The sausages, thick smoked bacon and the hash are out of this world.

                              Best Corned Beef Hash (also the best Scrapple) I ever had was at Zinn's Diner in Denver, PA. Think it's exit 21-22 on the PA Turnpike. Really good hash is hard to find especially since my wife and I moved to Florida. There's one small breakfast joint on Park Avenue in Lake Park that still makes hash the old fashioned way and not out of a can.

                                  I third the corned beef hash at the Friendly Toast -- my wife and I make the hour's drive from Boston to Portsmouth about every three or four months to have breakfast there! Green eggs and ham with a side of hash is breakfast heaven.

                                  My wife is also partial to the Almond Joy pancakes.

                                    I've never had that much corned beef hash in restaurants, and that which I've had has not been that good, with the canned stuff from the grocery store being even poorer. Maybe this is because, like scbuzz, I'm from the South, and I guess its just not that popular down here and what is available isn't that good. Definitely the best corned beef hash I've ever had has been in various New England restaurants. That was good! However, I grew up with homemade roast beef hash and homemade turkey hash being extremely popular dishes, though never saw them served that much in restaurants; seemed to have been more of a home cooking thing. My dad and I could hardly wait for the main roast beef or turkey meals to be completed so that we could then get the hash for the next meal.

                                        I too love corned beef hash, but being in the south, it is just not on the menu much.

                                        I was really craving it with eggs, so I bought a can of the kind at the store. The checkout girl looked at it and said "are you really going to eat that?", my husband was dubious as well, but he ate it.

                                        Anyone know where we can get some of the good stuff down here?

                                        Roast beef hash is one of our favorites the next night or two after having a roast. If there is any left. I have three teenagers so the chances are slim.

                                          It doesn't compare to something along the lines of what Michael has a picture of upthread, but you can do much better than canned corned beef hash by buying a can of corned beef (something that you'll find even in southern supermarkets, next to the Spam), frying up some potatoes with onions and peppers, and then throwing in the corned beef when the potatoes are nearly done, breaking the beef into threads with the spatula and frying the whole thing until it develops a nice crust on the bottom. There's so much water in canned hash that it'll never crust up the way you want it to.

                                            I use Mary Kitchen canned corned beef hash when I need a fix at home. I don't have any trouble at all getting a good crust on the hash.

                                              When we were kids, my mother used to spread a couple of cans in a baking dish (I suppose it was a 9x13), then make 4 deep indentions; into each she would crack a raw egg. She'd bake this until the eggs were done, and that would be dinner. I LOVED it.

                                              Lone Star is right; you just can't hardly find it down here. So, when I have to have some, I either buy a can or go to IHOP (Ok, don't slam me for that, wanderingjew ).

                                              Lucky Bishop, if you'll pre-heat an iron skillet, then plop the canned hash in there, you should be able to achieve the crust.

                                                I love corned beef hash, and have to say that even the cheap stuff out of the can does the trick for me! There aren't many things I'll eat out of a can, either. That said, best I've had yet might be that at the Farmer's Diner in Barre, Vermont, one of the best spots for breakfast I've ever experienced and a must-visit for the Sterns I would think. Everything homemade and almost everything grown in Vermont. Beef is all in-state, though I don't know who corns it. In any even, real shreds of thin-cut corned beef, good seasoned potatoes, green peppers....mmmmm.

                                                Also great: Walker Brothers, Wilmette, IL.

                                                  Best corned beef hash I've ever had: Shapiro's in Indianapolis. Made with chunks of the corned beef they use for their sandwiches.

                                                      This is good, too: a Shapiro's corned beef omelet :



                                                      ... and here's a very juicy corned beef hash we just had at Up For Breakfast in Manchester, Vermont (review to follow):

                                                          If you are compromising by using canned corned beef hash, a good breakfast preparation is to open both ends of the can, and using your palm keep on tapping hard against the side of the can (may take a good 3 or 4 minutes) until it plops out whole onto a plate. Lay it sideways and cut into inch-thick patties. Fry these in a good amount of very hot oil, and you should achieve a perfect crust on both sides. In the event that it doesn't exit the can intact, simply shape into patties using your hands, then. It will still work. You can also cheat by frying the hash inside of a ring mold to maintain a perfectly round patty. I enjoy these topped with poached eggs and peppery cream gravy - a lowbrow Eggs Benedict!

                                                            I have done something similiar to what you did except I put the can in the fridge and when it was cold, I opened it as you indicated, dipped in eggs, flour, soul food seasoning, onions and pepppers and deep fried it. I served it with eggs and has browns and my guest thought I was some type of NYC chef.
