Slow cooker corned beef hash recipe

Comfort food rather than pretty food. But goooooood food.

Ingredients for 4:

650 g / 1 1/2 lbs potatoes, not peeled but cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 large onion, chopped finely
5-6 large slices deli corned beef
200g / 1 cup mature cheddar, grated
1 tin baked beans (optional)


Layer the ingredients as follows: half the spuds, half the onion, half the corned beef, a third of the cheese. Repeat and top with all the rest of the cheese. You can add an optional layer of baked beans in the very middle. It's important that none of the potatoes are showing or they'll go a nasty grey colour.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours.


This was perfect at 8 hours when my daughter had it. After 10 1/2 hours, it was pushing it; the edges were starting to get crunchy (actually the crunchy bits tasted great!)  and the potatoes were starting to lose their shape a bit. After a tough day though, we barely cared. It's real man food and is lovely with a poached egg on top, maybe as a cooked breakfast. We ate it with roasted veggies which you can see above. Try this if you like food that would play rugby rather than ballroom dance ;>)
