Quick and Easy Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Coffee and whole wheat toast are one of my breakfast mainstays. St. Patrick’s Day is coming up so why not whip up a loaf of Irish Soda Bread one of the greatest gifts this Lazy Budget Chef (who can’t proof bread to save her life) has ever known – the bread machine. As luck would have it I have more whole wheat flour than white and more raisins than normal because I went to a bulk bin without a container and bought more raisin than I thought. No problem. I’ll make a Irish style whole wheat bread featuring those those happy raisins sitting in my kitchen. I am using the bread machine to make and proof the dough for this recipe and baking the bread in the oven because I want the round shape of a traditional Irish style bread. You can bake it that way or you can bake the whole wheat Irish bread from start to finish in a bread machine. It will taste just the same although I personally think baking bread in the bread maker makes it a little more dense than when I bake bread machine do

Quick and Easy Corned Beef Hash Recipe

I had some leftover corned beef in the refrigerator that was too much for one person to eat and a bit too little to reheat and serve by itself for dinner.

I also had a few potatoes in the pantry that I needed to use and decided to get these two crazy kids together and made corned beef hash for dinner!

Since this is a cooking with leftovers recipe, I don’t have exact measurements for the ingredients I used to make it, which I know drives some of you crazy. Sorry about that. My general rule is to use slightly less potatoes than I have corned beef.

You will need the following ingredients for this budget recipe

Corned beef – I’m using leftover corned beef brisket I made in my slow cooker. You can also use canned corned beef if you like.

Potatoes - a few less potatoes than you have corned beef. Or not, it’s up to you! And just like the corned beef, you can used canned potatoes if you like.

One onion

The neutral tasting vegetable oil of your choice

Salt and pepper to taste

My husband declared that my corned beef hash recipe is much better than the canned stuff! 

Step by Step How to Make this Recipe

Tip: Peeling and precooking the potatoes will make it much easier to make sure the meat and potatoes are heating through at the same rate and reduce the risk of burning the corned beef while the raw potatoes need to cook through. I like to use a potato bag (you can learn about microwave potato bag cookers here ) or 7 minutes on high in an electric pressure cooker (you can learn more about my Instant Pot here.) (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience.)

1. Chop the onion and saute it in oil in a frying pan on low to medium heat on the stove until the onions are lightly brown.

2. Cube the potatoes and corned beef and add it the onions.

3. Add just a quick kiss of salt and pepper to the mixture to bring out the flavor of the potatoes and onions. You don’t need much because the corned beef by itself has plenty of both already.

4. Cover the pan and allow the mixture to simmer and fully heat through for 20 minutes (or more or less depending upon the amount of ingredients you are using and if you precooked/used canned potatoes or not) and occasionally removing the lid and stirring the ingredients so they will not burn.

5. Once the ingredients are fully cooked through, serve, eat, and repeat!
