Corned Beef Hash - Comfort Food for the whole family

I have posted a video and article on the Boiled Dinner. This time it is about the leftovers. It is called a hash which is a dish that contains diced or chopped meat, potatoes, vegetables, and spices. In this instance, everything you cooked in the boiled dinner is diced to the same size and fried to crispy perfection.

The Process of Mes en Place

For my hash, I'm going to concentrate on this as the main dish with my cured beef. To get everything ready I have taken the boiled dinner recipe and prepared everything separately and to el Dante. I let the potatoes, beef, carrots, sweet potatoes and cabbage cool completely.  Once cooled it is time to dice everything into 1/2 inch cubes. This is necessary to get the proper cook on everything.
