See the recipe card below for portions.

  • Cauliflower. Cut into florets, we used fresh cauliflower, but frozen cauliflower works just as well.
  • Butter. Salted organic, grass-fed butter is best, but for those on a budget, regular salted butter is fine.
  • Onion. One small onion diced
  • Corned beef. We cooked our own corned beef from our corned beef recipe, but you can use pre-cooked or tinned corned beef, even (tinned corned beef is actually how this recipe originated from rations during wartime). You can also substitute for leftover sausage, chicken, ham, bacon even lamb.
  • Salt. We like kosher salt (sea salt flakes), but any salt will do.
  • Pepper. If you really want to spice things up, you can use chili peppers too.

Method

Step 1. Cook cauliflower

Steam or boil the cauliflower until just tender and drain well.

Step 2. Saute butter and onion

Place a large nonstick frying pan over high heat and add the butter and onion. Saute until translucent.

Step 3. Brown all ingredients

Add the cauliflower and saute for about 5 minutes, until it starts to brown, then add the corned beef. Continue to cook until the cauliflower is nicely browned and the corned beef is heated through.

Step 4. Season and serve

Season with salt and pepper.

How to serve corned beef hash
