They are both delicious and wonderful, yeah they smell a bit like dogfood, but toss that into a cast iron skillet with a bit of butter until it gets all nice and crispy, put on top of sourdough toast with an egg over easy...

God, I'm getting the shakes just thinking about it... All that lovely cholesterol...

Grew up on the stuff. Try it with some flatbread for breakfast. Spam is ok, CBH so much better.

Also good in an Omelet with some cheese and some bell pepper.

I would have a hard time eating it out of the can... too much like Alpo...

I won't deny how good RBH is fried with peppers and onions and eggs, then dumped into a hot tortilla with Tapatio on top...

Box of mac n cheese, can of hash. Feeds 1-2 hungry people. I SOOO want some now.

This is making me realize just how unprepared I am for these weather conditions. Tonight will be just below freezing after days of rain, with some possible snow storms. The roads are going to ice up, and I don't have any hash! :(

Had it over rice as well as with MOAR potatos which I started fired with onions just for added awesomes.

Well, I've just been informed by the Vice-President, Americas, of Hormel International, that the Mary Kitchen Roast or Corned Beef Hash products are not available in Canada.

I'm crisping up a tin of Puritan CBH right now, but anyone want to hook a brother up with some Hormel :ohdear:

Yes Corned beef hash does taste good with salsa and eggs with some shredded cheese. like cheddar or Parmesan. Wrapped up in a tortilla.

After reading this, I HAD to go out and get a can last night. I got the Mary's Kitchen and fried it up in the skillet. Ate it over toast, I was pleasantly surprised after the smell of opening.
I had tried it earlier this year, but I got the Armour brand, and don't think it was cooked long enough, basically just warmed, and it tasted like crap. So I'm not sure if it was the cooking method or the brand.

I do not believe that I have had anything other than the Hormel / Marie’s Kitchen brand in recent history…I believe that I may have tried Libby’s (?) several years back but do not recall if it was better or worse than Hormel.

I do not want to defend a product I have not tried myself, but Armour makes other quality stuff that I do like and I would think they would try and have uniform quality standards for all their lines. Will make a conscious effort to find some and give it a go.

I don’t want to derail, but has anyone tried the canned (tinned or potted whatever they call it in your respective AOs) corn beef that normally comes on square cans from South America (Argentina, Brazil or Chile)? Growing up in Panamá mama Slappy used to get us that and then add her own tatters, onions, etc. to turn it into CBH.

I found a can of the stuff at a local store and was underwhelmed. Either my experience is coated by the tinted lens of childhood nostalgia or the quality has severely taken a nose-dive in the last three decades.

Anyone have any experience with the product I’m talking about?

I know that stuff, have a couple of cans on the shelf now. About all it's good for is using in making your own CBH, good stuff in my book when prepared properly.

True, amazon is usually my friend, but "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order." is what they have to say today.
Thanks, though.

-edit- Found this!

So, that's almost $22/can. Now sure, that's delivered, but really, how good IS this stuff :lol:
-edit-


And as for that 'Puritan' CBH I tried yesterday...couldn't finish it. I'm not a picky eater, and have been known to eat questionable leftovers, but this stuff brought me to my knees. Man, it was just nasty and salty beyond belief. I tried 'crisping' it up, and I'm not sure I did a great job, but man, it was gross. Put me off my feed for the evening, which is maybe not a bad idea. Hmmm, new 'Weight Watchers' menu item, anyone?

Ah, the basics! A tasty meal in a can that will stick with you...

I love the roast beef hash, sizzled in the skillet until crispy enough to suit (for me that is about 50% crispy... for the wife, 101% crispy). I like some chopped onion cooked into mine. She prefers hers plain.

Season with black pepper (already salty enough for anyone and everyone) and chow down.

I like the corned beef hash too sometimes. Corned beef all by it'self is a favorite of mine on sandwiches. Just slice, sizzle, and slap it on the bread. Mmmm m.

It can be darned salty, but never eat it by itself and it won't be too bad, on toast with eggs is good, or just dice a boiled potato in with it when you crisp it (and seriously crisp it, it should almost burn).

Corned beef hash is one of my favorite canned foods, but I've not yet tried "roast beef" hash, nor recall seeing it in grocery stores (upper Midwest, USA).
Is it regional, or store specific?


dustycanuck, how about changing your Location to a don't-make-me-work form? :)
A lot of us have family/friends in your wonderful country, and, particularly if you'd be willing to do a swap (Coffee Crisp and/or Twinkies?), I'm sure someone could hook ya up! :)

When you get a chance, please post up the nutrition and ingredients for Puritan. If Mary's Kitchen or Hormel is more salty, it might not be worth the effort.


I've seen smaller cans (one person serving size), which I'm tempted to stock as an emergency comfort food, and for treats. When I get the cravings, the regular size can is a bit too much, now that our nest is almost empty. We often crack a can at Holiday Gatherings.

Yet another Thread Of Win on the ZS boards! Mary Kitchen, Roast over Corned, but Corned Beef will do.

Crispy in a skillet with sauteed diced onion is good, but I've been eating it raw out of the can since I was 8. The family would make jokes about my eating dog food, but that just made me feel like Mel Gibson in The Road Warrior.

If you do a corned beef for St Paddys day make sure to try your own hash.

When you say corned beef hash do you mean this? Image
I've been eating that for years, love it :mrgreen:
It makes a good stew. Just add potatoes, fried onions, carrots and water; simmer till soft. Leave over night and reheat the next day with extra potatoes. Sticks to your ribs.
HP Sauce is a good accompaniment.
