Campsite cooking: Corned Beef Hash


In association with Outdoor Revolution

This classic British dish is quick and simple to cook on a double-burner stove at the campsite. It’s cheap to put together and wonderfully versatile – you could cook it for lunch, dinner or even a hearty breakfast

Ingredients (for 4)

  • 340g tin of corned beef
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 large red pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Half tsp of smoked paprika
  • Half tsp of hot paprika
  • Salt and white pepper
  • Splash of dry sherry (optional)
  • 2 spring onions

How to cook it

Peel and cube potatoes and boil in lightly salted water until just cooked.

Meanwhile, cut up the peppers and onions and fry in a pan until soft.

Crush the garlic and add to the pan, before sprinkling the paprika in and throughly mixing it all together.

Cut the corned beef into large chunks and add it to the frying pan along with the potatoes.

Season to taste and add a splash of sherry, if you fancy, then leave over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes until it develops a nice crust. Be careful not to let it burn.

Gently turn the mixture over and repeat on the other side.

Dish it up with crusty bread and sprinkle chopped spring onion on top to garnish.

A fried or poached egg could be served up on top to add a tasty accompaniment.

And to give the dish an extra kick you could stir some chopped chillis through with the peppers and onion or serve it with your favourite hot sauce.

Cook it on…
