  • 400 g potatoes a waxy variety such as Charlotte, Maris Peer, or Jersey Royals, diced
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 200 g Princes Corned Beef chilled and diced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil if needed
  • 1 lime optional
  • handful coriander


  • Put the diced potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water, bring to the boil then simmer for 3 minutes until almost cooked. Drain.
  • Melt 20g (0.7 oz) of butter in a heavy-bottomed non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onions, curry powder and green chilli. Fry for 2-3 minutes until soft.
  • Grab your can of corned beef – it’s easiest to work with if you store it in the fridge for a few hours before using – and dice.
  • Add a little more butter if the pan looks dry, then add the corned beef and fry until the colour deepens. Tip the mix on to a paper towel to drain.
  • Heat 20g (0.7 oz) of butter in the pan.
  • Add the parboiled potato to the pan. Fry until golden.
  • Add the corned beef mix back into the pan and fry briefly until warmed through.
  • Share between two dishes.
  • Wipe your pan and fry two eggs until just cooked (use a little oil if needed). Place the eggs on top of the hash.
  • Optionally, add a scattering of coriander and a squeeze of lime and serve immediately. Enjoy!
