J – Corned beef hash and I go back a long way.
I’m pretty sure it’s not my heritage. I like all things Irish, but I have to wear green on St. Paddy’s Day. I remember corned beef hash from childhood … not fondly. I loved the idea, just not the execution. I kept trying. No deal.
Then, I had Luke’s corned beef hash a few years ago. OMG! This guy had it down.
This is also when I started learning more about brining and braising.
How you season and prepare the beef brisket makes all the difference. Basically, the good stuff takes time. We pay for that … hopefully … at good restaurants. It’s no different at home.
The great news is that you prepare larger-than-normal amounts and freeze a bunch. You’re good for at least 6 months to a year. Not bad, in my book. Note to BMBH management, we need a larger freezer!
This dish comes together pretty quickly. Everything is prepared. Just heat-n-eat in order … so to speak.
