Hashing It Out

I seem to be on a Fifth Quarter kick. I went a little crazy when I found their booth at the Kensington farmer's market a couple of weeks ago, so we've been feasting every few days.

The latest offering was a chunky, macho serving of corned beef hash, conveniently vacuum sealed - all I did was cut it open, heat the contents in a frying pan and plop a poached egg on top.

My Beloved is very fond of corned beef hash and he considers himself a good judge of it. His gold standard is the hash they sling at the Parkside in Stinson Beach - no one has yet measured up to theirs. This from Fifth Quarter, however, looked to give the Parkside a run for their money.

Pink dice of meat and golden dice of potatoes, seasoned with Anaheim chiles, onion and spices, it was a hearty portion for two and might easily have fed four lighter eaters. My Beloved would have liked more onion and I thought it could use a bit more salt and pepper but that's just nitpicking. This was delicious hash, meaty and flavorful - if we had never been to the Parkside, this would have been our all-time favorite.

This sounds really great. I love corned beef hash, but usually only have it once a year, after St. Pat's Day. You found a good one.

Oh, I do love hash, but I guess I'll have to make it myself. Lucky you to have such a nice packaged version handy.

Kitt, don't you make trips to Oakland from time to time? You could pick up some of this to take home. ;-) Worth the trip!
