Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash. Our favourite brunch in the Milner household and the perfect use of corned beef, onions, carrots and potatoes. It is much quicker to make in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker and your kids will fight you over the last spoonful.

Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash must be one of my favourite old school cheap recipes ever. We are currently running a theme dedicated to World War 2 British Rations and the first meal we thought of was corned beef hash using tins of corned beef.

My Grandma was Irish and always had lots of great meals that she would cook for me and this included Corned Beef Hash, though I am sure this is just because she had a thing for potatoes and would eat them all the time!

The great thing about Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash, is that you can simply grab a cheap can of corned beef and mush it up with lots of potato, carrot and onions and you have a yummy lunch.

I also love the fact that I don’t have to wait forever for the potatoes to go soft and how quick the Instant Pot makes this dish.

When we lived in the UK we would have it all the time and have often had a few family versions of it. I always remember Dominic making me it layered with layers of corned beef, sliced potatoes, beans and a huge amount of cheese.

I am now getting hungry just thinking about it.

But I have a problem when it comes to corned beef hash:

Cans of corned beef is crazy expensive here in Portugal. You could easily be talking 4 Euros here for one can!

When you compare that it is 75% cheaper in the UK, it is no longer a cheap family meal.

Plus, when you compare that for 4€ here in Portugal I can get 8 small pork chops or 6 chicken breasts, or a just cooked rotisserie chicken, you can see why I don’t buy it very often.

But when we were in the UK back in June, I binged on it. I just couldn’t stop eating it and my aunt’s kitchen smelt of my Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash all the time.

I then took a few cans with me and made lots of it as we travelled around Europe in our tent. It made the best ever camping breakfast!

But my Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash binge is far from over, as I discovered while travelling how cheap they are on Amazon.

There are a huge amount of sellers on there selling it. This brand is our favourite and its so nice having all the tinned corned beef delivered to us, rather than having to carry it all home from the supermarket!

In some versions of Instant Pot Corned Beef Hash, the ingredients list can use mixed peppers instead of carrots and in some American versions I notice they add eggs, but this is the classic Corned Beef Hash that I grew up with and adore!

  • Peel and dice the potatoes, the carrots and the onion.
  • Place them into the bottom of your Instant Pot and add 375ml/1.5 cups of beef stock.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 7 minutes on manual pressure.
  • When it beeps, quickly release pressure and open the Instant Pot. Add seasoning, dice the corned beef and add it to your pot. Mix it well with a wooden spoon on the sauté setting for 2 minutes, or until the corned beef is warm and well mixed.
  • Serve while it’s still warm.


I chop the potatoes, corned beef into the same medium sized chunks. The carrots are better as tiny cubes, as is the carrots, so that everything is well cooked and you don’t have crunchy carrots syndrome.
For the stock we used this one. It gives so much more flavour compared to a cheap stock cube. Though you can use either.

  1. Apologies if this is a silly question but what does ‘cook for 7mins on manual pressure’ mean? What button do you press for this on the PKP?

    • Hi Amy

      That is not a silly question. Their are alot of different electric pressure cookers out there. We have not got one here but looking at the panel i would use the steam button and it should work fine 🙂

    Oh my goodness, I have finally found the recipe that my mum and grandma taught me on the hob! I thought I was the only one that used tinned corned beef because all the other recipes I found used the US-style corned (salted) beef. Thank you for publishing this, can’t wait to try it out.

    This was a staple in our house growing up. Sometime for Sunday dinner we put a pie topping on it 😂
    Recipe works perfectly, I find one tin of corned beef enough and makes it super thrifty👍
    Having it tonight for tea.

  4. Additional…… We never had parsley with this, I’m not sure it Chuck in some frozen peas at the corned beef stage though. 👍

    OMG… Thank you so much!

    The last time I ate this was more than 50 years ago when it was one of my (Belfast-born) Mum’s staple recipes to feed three of us hungry kids on an incredibly tight budget. She used to add corn from a shredded cob to bulk it up on the cheap (these were the days when canned sweetcorn was just so far in the future) to make the pennies last a little further.

    So, I had to cut the quantities down considerably (‘cos I live on my own)… and I added what was new to my Mum at the time… a large dash of Worcestershire sauce (then called Worcester Sauce… how the memories come flooding back) and a very small can of sweetcorn.

    It’s very weird how a recipe can transport you back 5 decades in time yet at the same time be one of the tastiest (and cheapest) Instant Pot recipes ever. Thank you for the idea, the implementation and the amazing result. Just pure sticky goodness! It reminds me of my Mum’s “I’m going to serve you what looks like pig slop… but, trust me, you are going to love it.”

    When she went overboard (playing with her new [at the time] pressure cooker [which exploded on the gas hob spectacularly and resulted in a kitchen refit]) and had leftovers, she used to fry patties of corned beef hash mixed with corn and mixed peppers for our Sunday breakfast. It’s all coming back to me. That’s going to be my next challenge! 🙂

    Wow… not just a memory blast… but a flavour bomb as well. And very cheap. I’ve just ordered more cans of corned beef… ‘cos this recipe is a keeper.

    • Hi Rick,

      That is so wonderful to hear and i am 40 and grew up on corned beef hash too in the 80’s and it does bring back great memories. My Grandad always made the best patties in an old rusty frying pan that looked like it was 40 years old but tasted amazing 🙂

  6. 5 stars
    Great recipe!!! However, I don’t use carrots or other stuff in mine. I always cooked it in an electric skillet with just potatoes and canned corned beef. I recently purchased an instant pot and began looking for things to cook. I found a lot of stuff but decided to go looking for a corned beef hash recipe. I found this one abd have used it several times. Great easy meal abd it taste like the one I used to cook in an electric skillet (which I cooked for hours before). Even my dog loves this recipe.
