Recipe of the Week, March 17: Corned Beef Hash
What will you do with the leftover corned beef? Reuben sandwiches are a good idea, or you could make Corned Beef Hash.
Corned beef has no corn. Corning is a cure. Curing is an ancient process invented before refrigerators for preserving meat by packing it in salt or soaking it in brine. In recent years, curing is also done by injecting meat with a salt solution.
Canned Corned Beef was a World War II staple among civilians and among the troops in Europe because fresh meats were hard to come by.
