The idea for corned beef hash (to be referred to as CBH from now on... I'm feeling lazy today) came to me as I was reflecting on my childhood days. You see, I was a boy scout in my younger years, and I always loved the breakfasts the scout leaders would come up with on our frequent camping trips. One of those was affectionately known as "monkey brains." Then - I just thought it was delicious... made from scrambled eggs, potatoes, onions, and some variety of meat. Now - I realize it was just a hash with eggs. So here is MY version of monkey-brains: CBH.
- 1 lb Corned Beef slices (thick slices from your grocery deli is fine)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1-2 jalepenos (depending on your bravery), chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8-10 new potatoes, cubed
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cube the corned beef and set aside
- Melt the butter in a skillet and add the onions, jalepenos, and garlic - Cook on medium-heat until tender.
- While the veggies are cooking, get a large pot of water boiling and add the potatoes to the boiling water - Cook for 6-8 minutes.
- Drain the potatoes and add all ingredients together, including the corned beef.
- Cook the mixed ingredients together on medium heat for 5-10 minutes. (The corned beef is already cooked, so really, it just needs to be warmed.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve with eggs and any other breakfast ingredient you enjoy.
I hope this CBH recipe establishes a place in your family and helps the hair on your chest grow. Excuse me while I show off my knot-tying and pyrotechnic skills while reminiscing on the good old days...
Until next week friends!
