  1. Step 1

    Place the beef, leftover ham or beef, lamb or chicken in a large heavy-based saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 2 hours or until the meat is cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Use two forks to shred the beef. Skip the corn beef preparation steps if using leftover meat.



  2. Step 2

    While beef or leftover meat is cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients. Place the potato in a colander. Use your hands to squeeze out excess liquid. Place in a bowl with the corned beef or leftover meat, egg and half the spring onion or chopped chives. Stir well to combine.

  3. Step 3

    Heat half the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Divide the meat mixture into 8 even-sized portions. Spoon 2 portions into the pan and use the back of a spatula to flatten slightly. Cook for 3 mins each side or until golden brown and crisp. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and meat mixture.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the corned beef hash among serving plates. Top with cream and sprinkle with the remaining spring onion or chives.
