Inspired by the baked bean thread, where we seem to have gone off on a tangent... It seems to be one of those recipes with a million and one versions. What is yours? Belle does it this way: I buy cured corned beef and cook it in the bottom of the aga in a casserole with water, bay leaf, a clove or two and a bit of mace. I then shred it and mix with chopped cold roast potatoes, fried onions roughly sliced and baked beans then heat through in the oven. Soooooo yummy. Probably not an authentic recipe but so darn good I don't care! I do it this way: I place the corned beef in chunks in my big pyrex dish (for some reason, I always do my corned beef hash in my ugly big pyrex dish) and then I chop up some potatoes and put them in. Then I use some GOOD gravy (quite thin, as it will thicken) and pour over until just covering the meat and tatties, with a bay leaf, some sliced onions, lots of pepper. Cook on slow heat in the oven until it all starts to melt together and the gravy has been soaked up a bit and it all turns into a velvet silky thing. Heaven! So what is your version?
