Recipe for family meals :

Corned Beef Hash

This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.


2 cups chopped cooked corned beef
2 cups chopped boiled potatoes
1 small onion, chopped finely
freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons heavy cream

  • Mix the beef, potato, onions and pepper and salt to taste; be careful, the beef is salty.
  • Melt the butter in a 10 inch skillet; cast iron is best.
  • Spread the mixture over the bottom of the pan and press down with a spatula. Fry over medium / low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Use a spatula and take a peak at the underside. If it is nicely browned turn the hash over by sliding it out onto a dinner plate, and invert the plate over the skillet.
  • Pour the cream evenly over the meat and cook a further 15 - 20 minutes, or until the second side is nicely browned.
