I saw many have stated that their "cakes" fell apart during cooking or were difficult to keep together. To correct this, crack an egg in your mixture and mix well before forming into cakes and frying. This will keep them together and will also assure even browning. This is a simple and dish with a wonderful taste. Thank you for posting it.

O.K. I tried these this morning, and yes they did want to fall apart, however, letting the batch sit for about an hour, and they firm up.There really isn't much flavor to them, added onion powder, and garlic powder, but still kind of tasteless. Put the rest of the batch in the freezer.

I thought that this recipe was terrific and needed not too much time to prepare. I did, however; dip the cakes into egg and roll into bread crumbs. This helped the cakes stay together because they have a tendency to fall apart when frying. I served this with a mixture of 1 tb. dijon mustard, 3 tb. mayonaisse. My six year old daughter came back for seconds. Great with a tossed salad.

I liked this much better than the homemade corned beef hash I made recently. Liked them even better when I made a few additions--a good shake of Cajun seasoning, a couple of cloves of garlic (minced, thrown in toward the end of the onion cooking) and about 2/3 cup corn. With a nice salad, it was a quick and delicious meal.

Good hash, but it needs a little more flavor. I like corned beef hash and I like the idea of making it fresh I also like the idea of making it into cakes. It won't fry into a hard, fast-food hash brown because the mashed potatoes have too much water. Next time I'll use more corned beef, maybe more onion, and maybe some bread crumbs to absorb a little moisture. But still, its a good base.

BE PATIENT!!!! Go by the recipe, refrigerate for at least half an hour before cooking and don't turn too many times while cooking and these will be perfect. Enjoy :o)!

my husband loves corn beef hash and this one is a keeper! definitely add the egg to keep the cakes from falling apart. wonderful flavor and simple to prepare.

I am not sure where to start with this one....the flavor was so ON it's not funny (and I think that has everything to do with how the corned beef is prepared), but these cakes don't stay together. I added an egg, and would add another next time. I also added about a teaspoon and a half of dijon mustard and a small palmful of dried chives. Formed the patties and let them rest for a good hour and they still crumbled in the pan. Ultimately, I just added liquid and made a hash out of them. It was delicious, but this recipe needs to call for at least 2 eggs and perhaps something more in order to bind the mixture. Thanks!
