Corned Beef Hash


10 medium potatoes cubed and boiled till tender, then drained.
1 kg cooked corned beef, cubed.
2 onion chopped
25 g butter
1/2 cup cream
Salt and pepper


Heat a large skillet, or frying pan.
Add butter and onions, cooked potatoes, and corned beef.
Cook covered, over a med-low heat, turning with a firm spatular or fish slice frequently.  Make sure you turn it carefully getting alll the browing material off the bottom of the pan. It browns slowly at first and more quickly over time.
It needs to cook like this for 30 min.
Then add the thyme, and the cream, and season with salt and pepper.
Cover and resume cooking and scraping and turning every few minutes for a further 30 min.
(If you wish to reserve the hash mixture for later browning, stop after the cream and thyme is added and combined with the potato, corned beef and onion.)

Hollandaise Sauce


250 g butter, melted and hot
3 egg yolks
Juice of 1/2 a lemon (or lime)


Put the yolks and juice into the food processor bowl and set it running.
Let run for 20 seconds before starting to add the butter.
Tip the butter onto the yolks and juice with the motor still running.

It is very important to add the butter very slowly at first.
Adding it slightly faster as the emulsion begins to form around the whirring blades, and faster still as the volume grows.
Turn the processor off immediately that you have added all the butter.
