Air Fryer Corned Beef

Corned beef takes me back to childhood. Though only if it is a tinned corned beef recipe. I always loved as a kid my grandparent’s story of the World War Two rations and how as part of the rations the best thing you got was the cans of corned beef.

As a grown up I always make sure we have plenty of cans of corned beef in the cupboard. For when we are craving some corned beef hash, along with some corned beef sandwiches.

Today, I wanted to show you just how easy it is to use your corned beef to make delicious air fryer corned beef hash. It’s a great way to use up some potatoes, carrots and onions and are for everything to come together in the air fryer.

It also gives you a sneak peek from our new Air Fryer Cookbook, called Air Fryer Easy Everyday.

Air Fryer Easy Everyday

Air Fryer Easy Everyday is new for 2024, following on from our first air fryer cookbook. Our first cookbook sold over 100,000 copies worldwide is still selling well and has changed the way people use the air fryer.

In this newer air fryer cookbook (which is perfect for beginners) we have a pantry chapter. So that we can plan our meals by what we already have in. The pantry chapter is one of my favourite chapters and of course, a pantry air fryer chapter, wouldn’t be the same without corned beef hash in air fryer.

The pantry chapter will be perfect for saving money, stockpiling or for those times you are going travelling and lack a good fridge.

But I didn’t want you to wait until publication date for this yummy, classic corned beef hash recipe, so I am giving you a sneak peek now.  

Can You Cook Corned Beef In The Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook corned beef in an air fryer and you will love it. But remember when you air fry corned beef, it is already cooked, so it really doesn’t need long in the air fryer to get nice and crispy. Just like old fashioned corned beef hash would go crispy in a pan after you have already cooked the potatoes and carrots and onion.

Can I Cook Canned Corned Beef In Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook canned corned beef in the air fryer, and you will love it.

Crispy canned corned beef hash is so simple to make and you can also swap the traditional corned beef hash for some air fryer corned beef pasties instead for something different. Or how about using up your leftover corned beef hash and transforming it into corned beef pasties?

Can You Make Hash In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can make canned corned beef hash in the air fryer. You can also mix and match so if you are out of corned beef, you could do something similar with another meat. Why not try it with some spam? Or if canned food isn’t your thing, why not try our air fryer harvest casserole, which follows a similar concept.

UK Corned Beef Hash Recipe

You may be thinking….what you air fry corned beef hash with canned corned beef? Yes, here in the UK I am yet to see corned beef for sale that you can cook yourself and it only comes in the cans. I would love to go to the US for St Paddy’s day and try it with homemade, but I do love my corned beef cans so it would be something to try the alternative.

If you are outside the UK I would recommend you follow this to reheat corned beef in air fryer, the day after St Paddy’s and transforming it into a corned beef hash just like we have done.

Ninja Air Fryer Corned Beef

If you have a Ninja air fryer or a Ninja Foodi, then you can very easily make this corned beef hash recipe. When making it in a Ninja Dual I would spread the ingredients between the two drawers, then you don’t have to worry about them being over full and slowing down the cook time.

Or if you are making Ninja Foodi air fryer corned beef hash, then you can use the air fryer basket and then select the air fryer button.

Ingredients Corned Beef Hash

Ingredients Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef – For cooking corned beef in air fryer we used a can of corned beef. You can also use leftover homemade corned beef too if you prefer. Whichever corned beef you use in this corned beef hash air fryer recipe, we recommend chopping into chunks, so that as it cooks, you don’t have it turning into mush. 

Veggies – Then of course, corned beef hash, especially British corned beef hash wouldn’t be the same without potatoes, onions, and carrots. Though any potatoes that you can cube will work well, and I always use making this recipe an excuse to clean out and use up spare carrots and potatoes that I have forgotten about.

Extras – Are you team fried egg, or are you team baked beans? In our house we love our corned beef hash with some baked beans.

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested everyday air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10+ years.

How To Make Corned Beef Hash With Canned Corned Beef?

  • Prep. Lets start with our prep before air frying the corned beef. Peel and dice the carrots and potatoes and load them into a mixing bowl with your seasonings.  
  • Start. Next start with air frying the potatoes and the carrots as these have the longest cooking time. We recommend 20 minutes at 180c/360f but this can vary if you have a smaller portion or a larger portion.
  • Prep. Then back to the prep and peel and dice your onion and also chop your corned beef into chunks. I recommend the corned beef is chopped into chunks double the size of your potatoes as it will stop your corned beef from going mushy.
  • Cook. When the air fryer beeps add the onion and cook for another 8 minutes at the same temperature, stirring the onion into the potatoes or carrots, or you can shake the air fryer basket.
  • Finish. Then when the air fryer beeps, add the corned beef and shake the air fryer basket to spread it out. Then create a hole in the air fryer for your baked beans to slot into. I usually use a ramekin for this. Then a final 10 minutes with the corned beef and beans and everything will be perfect for serving.

How Long To Cook Corned Beef In Air Fryer?

We recommend cooking your corned beef hash in the air fryer for 38 minutes. Note this is for cooking the potatoes, making sure your carrots are fork tender, along with warming up and making the corned beef crispy, as well as piping hot baked beans.

The recommended corned beef air fryer temperature is 180c/360f this stops the potatoes from drying out, or the carrots from being overdone. Plus, its ideal for getting the corned beef crispy.

Why Wont My Corned Beef Hash Get Crispy?

This usually happens when the corned beef has not been in the air fryer long enough, or your air fryer temperature is not as good as our air fryer. If this happens, remove the baked beans, shake the air fryer, spray the tops with olive oil and cook for an extra 3 minutes at 200c/400f.

  • I always start my corned beef hash in air fryer with prepping the potatoes and carrots, because these need air frying first on their own. Peel and dice the potatoes and carrots into small cubes. Then add to a bowl with the olive oil and seasonings and mix well with your hands.

    I love corned beef hash and it’s even better now to be able to cook it in my air fryer but just a thought should there be another picture and instruction 5 to this recipe or not Samantha?

    • Hi Rosemary,

      Thank you for rating our recipe, we were deciding whether to add a 5th instruction but then the end result is in the main image, so we thought it does not need one as it would be to just serve, do you think it needs one? 🙂
