Let's talk about corned beef hash, shall we?

For anybody doing Paleo who enjoy a good corned beef hash, I just realized that the term "corn" is referring to Salt and not the grain Corn. Here Ive been staying clear of it all this time (1.5 years) simply because of its name.

Granted there are potatoes but I eat sweet potatoes or yams almost daily.

While this may be common knowledge to most, perhaps it will help someone out who wasn't in the "know," like myself,

I really appreciate this post- question or not. I was almost about to tell my room mate to eat the whole roast herself!

Sweet potato works great for hash. Try it with leftover lamb sometime.

No worries, this is pretty neutral stuff compared to other...things. The "did you know that...?" type hacks are usually pretty good but admittedly don't technically fit into the paleohacks format. I'll edit the title to make it into a question anyway.

Just a heads-up that if this isn't edited into the form of a question, the mods may delete it.

Wasn't common knowledge to me, and another thing I just learnt is that a comment and upvote is undone if I click the back button on my phone. I shoulda known that already :)

I have a quick and easy fake corned beef trick I just did this week. I took a US Wellness grassfed 3 lb beef shoulder roast and some Penzey's corned beef spice mix and blended it with a little apple cider vinegar in my food processor to make a paste then coated the roast and covered and put it in the refrigerator for 24 hours to marinate. The next day I put it in my dutch oven with a bit of chicken stock (about halfway up the meat) at 250 degrees for 4 hours in the oven, turning it once halfway through. It turned out fantastically delicious, moist and far easier than traditional corned beef which takes weeks to cure. I highly recommend it.

With my egg intolerance, hash is usually my fallback when I'm eating at a diner. There's a place in South Boston that makes it with coarse copped corned brisket instead of the mealy canned product, so good.

My wife and I have a favorite breakfast joint that we visit every other week or so. My standard order is 2 over-medium eggs and extra-crispy corned beef hash. I enjoy it immensely.

I reviewed the place on my site if you're in the mood for some pictures. (Warning, this may create a desire to go "off the wagon"!) http://www.fitnessinanevolutionarydirection.com/2011/10/unfrozen-caveman-food-critic-bagel-king.html

Instead of potatoes... rutabaga, parsnips, turnips?

I like to slow-cook a US Wellness beef tongue with 'corning' spices (heavy on the peppercorns) then shred it and pan-fry it as a crispy hash with onions and eggs.
