One pot corned beef stew recipe

Sharing is caring!

I made this recipe the other week and showed it on my Instagram Stories and lots of you asked for the recipe so here it is! This is my family recipe for a cheap and hearty one-pot corned beef stew.

Some people also call this a corned beef hash or corned beef hash stew. It’s the ultimate comfort food, especially served with some fresh bread and butter for dipping! My kids love this one too – both helping to make it and eating it so I’d fully recommend it to those of you who are busy parents.

I often make this corned beef hash recipe when money is running low as it is really affordable (89p per serving) and makes a big pot that lasts our family throughout the week.

You can also make this corned beef stew recipe in a slow cooker – just add all the ingredients except the gravy granules and stir those in at the end.

As for times, I’d try low for 4 hours or high for 2 but it depends on your slow cooker. You could try it longer but the potatoes might get a bit broken down. Its worth experimenting though.

One pot corned beef stew recipe

This is a cheap and cheerful family recipe of mine that is easy to make, cheap to buy and goes a long way. This is a recipe that even my kids will eat – and ask for seconds! And that's really saying something. They don't even complain about the vegetables. It's also a good one to get them involved in helping to cook it. The corned beef breaks apart in the stew anyway so they can chop that up easily and it doesn't matter if it's not neat. It's a pretty balanced recipe with protein from the meat, carbs from the potatoes and 2-3 of your five a day from the veg. It's super tasty and a total comfort meal for those days you need the equivalent of a hug from your food. It's a doddle to make all in one pan and you can make a heap of leftovers that will heat up lovely for another day. This costs less than 89p per serving. This can be a high salt recipe so feel free to use a reduced salt gravy and corned beef if you are concerned about salt intake.

  • When the veg is cooked, add the gravy to the pan and stir until it's a consistency that yoy like. We like ours pretty thick. I add a little, then stir and then repeat until I'm satisfied.

    Regular favourite in our house, comfort food at its best! Often just hung it all in the slow cooker, adding gravy granules at the end of cooking time.
