My instant pot corned beef hash is one of the simplest meals you will ever make. A perfect reminder of a meal my Mum and Gran used to make for me.
I love mine with a fried egg on top. Once the yoke meets the hash, I promise you its food heaven!
How to make instant pot corned beef hash
Corned beef hash is one of the simplest and quickest meals you will ever make.
First set the instant pot to saute and add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion and fry until softened. This should take around 3 minutes. Now add the garlic powder and sliced tomatoes. Fry until the tomatoes start to fall apart (usually a couple of minutes).
Now add the chopped carrots and potatoes. Try to keep the size of the chopped pieces similar so that they cook at around the same time.
Add the stock and season to taste (don't add too much salt as there will already be some in the corned beef). Stir together and then put the lid on. Set to high pressure for 6 minutes.
When the time is up, leave under pressure for another 6 minutes and then do a quick release. Once the pin has dropped remove the lid and set the pot to saute. Add the chopped corned beef and allow to warm through (this should take a couple of minutes).
The corned beef will fall apart when its ready and so its time to serve and enjoy.
As you can see this really is a simple and beginner-friendly recipe.
What are the ingredients for corned beef hash?
The ingredients are really simple and should be easy to find in most stores. Another bonus is that all the ingredients are fairly cheap making this a good recipe if you are on a budget.
- Olive oil
- Onion (I used white)
- Garlic salt or granules
- Whole tomatoes

A very easy and short list of readily available ingredients which makes this such a great recipe.
What to serve with corned beef hash?
I served mine with fried eggs on top and with a side serving of broccoli. The eggs match perfectly with the hash once they are broken up, but you don't have to use them if they are not something you like. Any leafy green vegetable would make a good side serving.
Are there any substitutions possible if I don't have all the ingredients?
With such a short list of ingredients, there aren't too many substitutions available, however it is possible to leave out some of the ingredients. Try some of the following:
- Instead of olive oil, use rapeseed (canola) oil.
- Fresh garlic could be used instead of garlic salt or leave it out if you don't like it.
- Tomatoes can be left out.
- Carrots can also be left out. I add them to make the recipe a little healthier.
All the other ingredients are essential to keep the recipe a corned beef hash.

Although corned beef is a little fatty, taken as a whole this recipe is full of fresh ingredients and has no other artificial additives. As part of a balanced diet, I would be happy to recommend my hash recipe as healthy.

The recipe will fit in well to all instant pot sizes as it is, and will also half well for all pots especially the 3l (3qt). You could double the recipe in the 6l (6qt), 8l (8qt) and 10l (10qt). Whichever you do, all timings would remain the same.
