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]:

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can you elaborate, Jeremy? Is the corned beef hash heated or cold/room temperature right out of the can? And is it made into a sandwich? Any condiments? Sounds intriguing, and I do enjoy peanut butter in a number of savory applications, but I am not sure corned beef hash would have ever sprung to mind as one of them.

We went out for breakfast last Saturday at a small local cafe, and I was surprised and delighted to find corned beef hash on the menu. Of course I ordered it. Imagine my disappoinment when my plate arrived and it was *sigh* canned.

The Olde Irish Alehouse in Dedham, MA has great corned beef hash (I was the chef there for a year). We took the left over corned beef from Friday's boiled dinner and mixed it with spuds and onions for Sunday brunch. Served this crispy brown on both sides with your choice of eggs, accompanied by bangers and Irish bacon........Irish soda bread and raisin bread....homemade orange marmelade and Irish butter.

The best C.B.H. I've ever had was at...my house because I could cook it to my own picky specs. That said, I usually don't have much to say about chain restaurants these days but I have to put a plufg in for the hash at The Original Pancake House. The Kansas City one's been gone for several years but a while back we ate at the one in Bethesda Maryland and it was just as good as I remember it in KC. I just like the vibe at those places...the menu's an education in itself (enzymes in the pancake batter and they'll tell you why) and the food's just plain good, imho.

I thought the picture looked great also (Pasquals). So I went there
last week on a road trip.

Actually the picture is deceiving, the corn beef hash leaves a lot to be desired. I've had better corned beef hash out of a can.

It's not worth anywhere near the $11.95 they charge. It is worth
about $1.

As Liketoeat said earlier, I am from the South and don't really understand Corn Beef Hash. Will someone, perhaps from Northern Climes, enlighten me as to what the definition of this dish actually is. Maybe we just don't have it, who knows.

I also see people (from the North, generally) referring to "Brunswick Stew"as a quintecential Southern dish, but I have never seen it being served any farther south than Birmingham. I like it, but always related it to Southern Appalachia, more than the traditional southern states.

Mayhaw, I have made roast beef hash many times using left over roast beef by frying some onions and potatoes, maybe a bell pepper, then adding chunks of the left over roast. I finish it by adding about a capful of Kitchen Bouquet browning sauce. As delicious as it is, it is just not the same as using corned beef, which is just not made much South of the Mason-Dixon line I guess.

I still look for it on the menus though!

Mayhaw Man, you know that Louisiana is a world to itself, not a part of the South. Well, maybe the South spills over a little bit near the Alabama and Mississippi borders, and from Bunkie on north might as well be Arkansas--but the rest of Louisiana is wonderfully different and special.

Good corned beef hash: take the left-over cooked corned beef brisket. Chop and combine with the left-over boiled potatoes, add a chopped onion. Put all in a cast-iron skillet with a little veg. oil and start the browning process. When it's nice and crisp on both sides, put into serving plates and top with two poached eggs.

Mayhaw---and all you folks of the southern persuasion---corned beef hash real is a treat and easy to make--you might want to "regionalize" it too---i make an "Okie Hash"----use barbecued brisket instead of corned beef and add some sweet potatos to the mix--not cooked to soft and diced along with the potato,onion,bell peppers and a bit of garlic-cook in a skillet till crispy and turn it over---make indentations inn the hash and drop in some eggs---add a tiny splash of liquid--i used Shiner bock last time--and cover till the eggs are cooked---i also make a sauce for it----half Head Country bbq sauce and half Mrs Renfros Peach salsa. Toss in a couple of bisquits and youve got a killer breakfast! I garuntee!

It's originally, and still is occasionally, referred to as "New England Red Flannel Hash," so at least it's origins seem regional. It gets its color by the simple addition of diced beets but, at least one scratch recipe I've seen calls for a small amount of milk as well(about 2-6 tbsp's per cup-and-a-half of corned beef). I'm not sure how well this variation works with various canned hashes but one not-so-well-known brand, Hereford's, would probably benefit from sweetness of the beets.

I've mentioned this before in another CBH thread, but the best hash I've had was at the Miss Florence Diner in Florence, MA. They grind the ingredients instead of leaving them chunky. (I believe this is an old NE way of preparing hash; can anyone colloborate?) This leaves the stuff wickedly crispy on the outside and luxuriously creamy on the inside. They'd press big rounds of red onion into it and serve a great big plate-sized pancake of it. Good times.

The Full House Cafe in Oakland serves the best corned beef hash I've ever tasted. It contains huge flakes of still-juicy corned beef, some potato, some onion, fresh dill, and is served with a cup of horseradish cream on the side. They also have red flannel hash, mushroom hash, and sometimes poached salmon hash. Also, the Whistle Stop Cafe in Deep River, CT. has something they call a "Rustler's Benedict"- eggs benedict w/ corned beef hash in place of ham.

I grew up in Appalachia and never saw Brunswick Stew served anywhere in the mountainous sections of Kentucky, West Virginia, SW Virginia or East Tennessee. But I've enjoyed it dozens of times in the piedmont and low country areas of Georgia and North Carolina where is is generally included in a barbeque dinner or served with cornbread.

The best Brunswick Stew I've eaten was at Harold's Barbecue in Atlanta. You can see excellent photos of Harold's stew in the Stern's review on this Web site. In fact Harold's may be the best Brunswick Stew served at any restaurant; it's certainly the meatiest I've found.

Zeb's in Danielsville, Georgia has very good Brunswick Stew as does Holcomb's Barbeque in White Plains. I also like the version served at Hot Thomas Barbecue in Watkinsville, Georgia.

To date, I haven't had very good Brunswick stew at North Carolina barbeque temples. The N.C. stew I've had usually seems overcooked and bland (Bullock's and Parker's). I generally leave it on my plate.

Really, Brunswick Stew is all over Georgia and North Carolina.

Surely, there are places below the Mason Dixon line that serve up authentic corned beef hash. With so many northerners relocated to southern climes I'd think there would be pockets where people would demand favored dishes from home.

Atlanta, SE Florida, SW Florida and Charleston come to mind.

This thread (with its provocative photos) makes me feel like I've been missing out on something very good and I'm in a pout about it.

I just open both ends, remove the top, turn the can over and push the hash right out with no problems. It stays together and can be sliced easily. No need to spend time tapping on the side and waiting for it to come out on its own.

I want to also add the Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown,MA to the list.
Great homemade hash, as well as all breakfast foods.
Greek sausage also served.
This place does the little things right, like buttermilk and sourcream in the pancake mix, chunks of meat in the hash, and big thick french toast.
Only drawback is that when it gets crowded, you often have to wait outside-kinda cold here in New England in winter.

The only place I know of in the Columbus area that serves corned beef hash is a place called the Grill and Skillet in Bexley. Several years ago Bob Evans began serving corned beef hash, but it was the worst tasting hash I've ever eaten. They removed it from the menu quickly.

I love CBH. Many restaurants in the south have no clue what it is and I have no clue how to make it, so I have relied on the canned if I want some, or travel north or west from here.
Would anyone be willing to share a recipe, or continue naming restaurants that serve a god CBH?
