Thread Name: BS: the people who make the corned beef
Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
thanks for the dessert ideas, Dave's Wife. And the recipe.

Ron Olesko: you prob haven't noticed the corned beef in a can because the can is a funny shape - not round, but a low and squarish. This is what you do:

open the can, using the little key. (If it breaks, you can use a regular can opener, although it takes finesse.) Get the corned beef out and break it up into chunks.

chop up some onion

slice up some potatoes

heat some oil or fat in a big skillet. (I use corn oil). Brown the onions, then set them aside in a little dish.

Brown the potatoes, then shove them to the outside of the skillet.

Brown the corned beef. It tends to stick. That's part of the charm.

Finally, stir the beef, potatoes and onions together. Cover the skillet and let it cook gently until the potatoes are completely cooked.

Just before serving, remove the lid and turn up the heat some so that the hash is not too soggy. Eat with a fried egg, if desired. Don't forget the ketchup, either. And a beer.

We like to make this when we are camping.
