I had no idea how it should be cooked or eaten so I decided to fry it up in a frying pan. It looked rather bland so I added some black pepper and some of my special chili piquin powder.
I was right. It was bland. Still not sure I was doing it right, I Googled, “How do people eat corned beef hash.” I came upon the question with a thread of answers. None of them sounded especially good. I’m sure home-made hash might be far better than canned hash but still it couldn’t be THAT much better. It made me wonder, “Who eats corned beef hash?” and “Why?”
I guess it is a northern thing for elderly white people who have a taste for the tasteless. Most commonly used as a breakfast food, I find myself wondering what the point is. Why have “hash” when you can just have better things like eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, cereal, breakfast tacos, toast?
I find corned beef hash to be unnecessary.
