About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Hashed Potato Pancakes


Silverside or corn beef is one of the most versatile meats. Not only does it make a very satisfying meal, but the leftovers can be put to several different uses; a sandwich of corn beef and piccalilli makes a great lunch and of course there are the well known hash brown cakes.

It was along the lines of hash brown cakes that my thoughts wandered, but wanted something with a bit more crunch that also just might accommodate my desire for a little maple syrup. Okay, not diet friendly but completely delicious!




Potato pancakes seemed the ideal way to carry this off, because really, how can you go wrong with fried potato? It was just a matter of adding some finely shredded slices of corn beef and drizzling over the maple syrup. Of course sour cream would be nice instead of maple syrup or both could come along for the ride.

Hashed Potato Pancakes


2 eggs
2 heaped tablespoons plain flour
100ml milk
nutmeg, a good pinch
salt & fresh ground pepper
2 or 3 floury potatoes, grated
6 to 8 thin slices of corn beef, shredded with a knife
oil for frying
maple syrup - optional
sour cream - optional

In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs, add the flour and milk then beat until smooth. Season with the nutmeg, salt and quite a lot of freshly ground pepper. Wrap the grated potato with a tea towel and squeeze out as much moisture as you can and add to the batter along with the shredded corn beef. Check the seasoning again.

Place a film of oil in a frying pan and when hot, add in spoonfuls of the mixture and flatten with a spatula or egg slice. Fry until well browned, turn and brown the other side, keep warm until all the mixture is used up.

Place on plates and top with sour cream, maple syrup or any other desired topping.

My grandmother used to use up leftover corned beef in this way - I loved it.

Cindy - Had a feeling that I wasn't the only one to have done this and yes, they really taste great. id you use a topping?

Tanna - I wanted both, left off the sour cream for the picture!

I think I might've eaten them plain, but I remember being disgusted that some family members ate them with honey! Sour cream definitely appeals to me now (though corned beef doesn't :-P ).

I love corned beef, I always use left over mashed potato instead of grating them. They look really good.

I never tried hashed potato pancakes before but this looks so good! And pretty easy to do to. Been really busy managing a Chinese Restaurant in Capalaba area and I find it hard to whip something up in the home but this looks really quick and easy to do and I would love to try this one out!
