Corned beef and consequences

On St. Patrick's Day, Priya and Mike and I had the usual ol' boiled dinner. Nothing special--store-bought, pre-brined corned beef, simmered for a few hours with onion and garlic and celery and spices, with some potatoes and eighthed cabbage added in near the end--but it was pretty good, and the first time Priya had had such a thing (she enjoyed it). I had a nice corned beef sandwich the next day, but we were careful to lay away enough meat for a weekend brunch...


So today we made corned beef hash and poached eggs. It was very simple, just mixing up the corned beef remnants and some diced potato and diced onions (softened in a pan with butter first), with some parsley and salt and pepper, and then browning it as a patty in a pan with butter. With the poached eggs on top and some leftover focaccia from La Villa on the side, it was a very nice breakfast.
