Corned Beef Hash with Stilton {And Charlotte Potatoes}

Princes asked me to create a recipe for corned beef hash with a regional twist for their Corned Beef Hash Clash campaign. As we live in Berkshire, the home of her majesty the queen, I've given my “Berkshire Hash” a royal twist. I've used some lovely locally grown Charlotte potatoes, in honour of the new princess, and finished the dish with some crumbled Stilton for a touch of luxury. 

The flavour combinations work a treat – it’s delicious. Stilton and beef are always good together and sautéed onions add sweetness. I love charlotte potatoes and always get them when they are in season, but either Jersey royals or baby new potatoes make a perfect substitute.

With only four ingredients, corned beef hash with Stilton is a quick and easy dish, ideal for a speedy evening meal or special brunch. Corned beef is versatile, good value for money and also has a long shelf life. Princes corned beef is made with 100% beef so it’s a great one for the store cupboard.

Corned Beef Hash with Stilton

  • Time: 10 mins prep + 15 mins cooking

  • Cost: 94p per serving

  • Calories: 583 per serving

  • Serves: 2 adults


  • 450g charlotte potatoes

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 onion

  • 200g Princes corned beef (chilled in the fridge for a few hours)

  • 50g stilton cheese, crumbled

  • Ground black pepper to serve (optional)


1. Bring a pan of water to boil for the potatoes.

2. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces.

3. Pop the potatoes in the water simmer for around 6-8 minutes until tender. Drain well when cooked.

4. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan.

5. Peel and slice the onion.

6. Fry the onion over a medium heat for around 3-4 minutes until opaque and slighted brown but not burned.

7. Meanwhile, open the corned beef. Tins of Princes corned beef come with a little key that make them easy to open.

8. Dice the corned beef into 1cm cubes. It’s much easier to slice if it has been chilled in the fridge for a few hours before use.

9. Add the cooked potatoes to the frying pan along with the corned beef.

10. Fry everything for around 5 minutes until crisp. Use a spatula to turn the mixture over but be careful not to break up the corned beef too much.

11. Transfer to a serving dish and immediately sprinkle over the crumbled up Stilton cheese so it melts. Top with some ground black pepper if you wish and serve straight away.
