Spice up your corned beef breakfast hash with this recipe, done up Madness style. We’ve incorporated Cajun spices, spicy peppers and plenty of your favorite hot sauce. Get cooking!

This is the last in our quick series of corned beef recipes, including the Slow Cooked Corned Beef with Spicy Guinness Gravy and Corned Beef Stuffed Peppers. We cooked up a gorgeous corned beef nice and slow in the Dutch Oven, in Guinness beer – YES! – but since there is plenty of leftover corned beef, we were able to stretch it to 3 separate meals.

You could easily stretch a 3 pound corned beef to 4 meals for 2 people, depending on how hungry you are. And I’m sorry, but I ate too much of the first meal!

I blame the Guinness Gravy. And the corned beef.

It was JUST. SO. GOOD.

But leftovers we had, luckily for us, and they found their way not only into the stuffed peppers the next night, but also into our Corned Beef Hash the next day.

Too much corned beef?

Nope.

Each of these meals is so different from one another, you’ll have ZERO corned beef fatigue. Behold.

Oh yeah. This is a nice and spicy corned beef hash, but it isn’t like any other typical corned beef hash you’ll have elsewhere.

We’re doing this up MADNESS STYLE, which means we’re incorporating some spicy peppers and quite a bit of your favorite hot sauce to the mix.

What is Corned Beef Hash?

A “hash” is derived from the French, “hacher” which means “to chop”. It is basically a dish made from diced meat, potatoes and spices that cook together.

With a corned beef hash, we incorporate corned beef and potatoes with other spices, along with peppers onions and more. Such a wonderful dish. Top it off with eggs and BOOM! 

Pure awesomeness.

What is Corned Beef?

Corned Beef is a beef brisket salt-cured in brine. The “corns” refer to the rock salt used in the curing process. Corned beef is often boiled and served with cabbage.

Here, we’re using it to make the well known Corned Beef Hash and Eggs, and it’s wonderful.

Let’s talk about how we make it, shall we?

How to Make Corned Beef Hash – Madness Style – the Recipe Method

First, heat up some butter and oil in a large pan and add in your diced potatoes, like so. I like to use my cast iron pan for this. A large frying pan works nicely, too. Or a nonstick skillet.

Cooking down the potatoes for our Corned Beef Hash Recipe

Sprinkle them with Cajun seasoning, salt and garlic powder. Cook them about 8-10 minutes, until they become fairly crispy.

Add the seasoning to the cooking potatoes

Reduce heat back to medium and add peppers, onion and corned beef. Cook about 4-5 minutes.

Add the corned beef to the cooking potatoes

Add chicken broth or water and let it steam up. Swirl in a bit of hot mustard.

Reduce the liquid, about 5 minutes or so, or until the potatoes are softened to your liking.

Added liquid to the pan to let the potatoes soften up with the corned beef, peppers and onions

Swirl in hot sauce then top with shredded cheddar cheese (if desired). Reduce heat to low and let the cheese melt slightly, if using.

Top the gorgeous hash with 2 lightly fried eggs and serve with your favorite hot sauce on the side.

Enjoy! This is my favorite corned beef hash recipe around. Such a great recipe.

Recipe Notes

Realistically, your corned beef can be as spicy as you’d like it to be, of course depending on your sauce of choice, and whether or not you bring in serrano peppers, or even something hotter.

Habaneros? Ghost peppers, anyone? Bring it on!

Looking for a milder version? Go with the standard bell pepper. You’ll still get plenty of flavor.

Pop a bit of shredded cheddar cheese over the resulting corned beef hash if you’d like and let it melt down. Don’t overdo the cheese. It’s meant to complement the flavors, not overwhelm them with cheese.

Let that corned beef shine through! And the potatoes! Season with salt and pepper. Top it all with a couple of fried eggs and…NOM. NOM. NOM.

Don’t Forget the Hot Sauce

Last but certainly not even CLOSE to the least, though shalt not forget the extra hot sauce at the end, and some spicy chili flakes. Maybe some fresh herbs. I always enjoy fresh chopped herbs, like cilantro or parsley.

Hot sauce!

If you’re not into making your own hot sauce – hint, hint, Hot Sauce Recipes – there are MANY outstanding artisan hot sauces on the market.

I’m happy to recommend some to you, but I’m sure you know what your favorites are. I personally recommend a Louisiana style hot sauce for this recipe, but hey, if you got a crazy awesome hot sauce, give it a gander!

Let us know how it turns out. Enjoy your corned beef hash and eggs.

Patty’s Perspective

Corned beef isn’t something everyone has around often, as it’s usually around for St. Patrick’s Day recipes, but I think it should be more readily available year round. Look at all the recipes you can make! Also, Mike says don’t forget the hot sauce. I say don’t forget the Bloody Mary.

    My wife, Mary, loves corned beef hash for the leftovers but I have been unenthusiastic until your recipe. We both love it now. Thanks for the great breakfast.

      Outstanding! Thanks! It’s one of my favorites, too.


  2. I’ve never cooked corned beef, which is something we do not eat very much in my country (even if I ate it a bit as a child), but your recipe looked so nice! so I made it today, but with canned corned beef, not your homemade recipe I’ll make someday.
    I made the recipe with my recent fermented Bhut Jolokia sauce, fresh basil, and of course cheddar! Nom nom nom!
    …a bloody mary would have been excellent with it, but it was lunchtime!

    1. Michael Hultquist - Chili Pepper Madness

      Sounds like I would need some of that, Jeremie! Nicely done.
