Alternative method (pressure cooker)
It's easy to make hash in a pressure cooker, just follow the pressure cooker instructions to cook the potatoes & onions on the hob.
- Put all the ingredients apart from the corned beef into the pressure cooker. You do not need much water, perhaps 1 or 2 cm of cold water.
- Bring the pressure cooker up to pressure and cook for approx 4 minutes.
- Meanwhile chop up the corned beef. When the other ingredients are cooked, open the pressure cooker and mix the corned beef in. Then serve.
