Serious Eats' Corned Beef Hash

Canned corned beef hash is the kind of food that you're only really happy to see if you find yourself stranded someplace, like say, a desert island or in the middle of the barren stretch of wilderness. We're assuming that if you find yourself in one of those places, that canned hash is going to taste pretty great, but barring extreme circumstances, not so much.

Today we've got a Corned Beef Hash recipe for you courtesy of the Serious Eats book that we want to eat pretty much anytime—yes, even on a desert island.

For this recipe Kenji has taken the hash staples (cubed corned beef and diced potatoes) and added poblano chile, a sizable squirt of ketchup or chile sauce, and runny yolked eggs that nestle right into the pan. It's a one-dish morning wonder that covers all of your breakfast bases: salty meaty, runny eggs, and crispy potatoes.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Serious Eats to give away this week.
