5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. You say you don't want to make a large, traditional St. Patrick's Day meal this year, but you still long for the great taste? Here is a "Simply" wonderful way to still experience the Holiday without the hassle. It makes a terrific brunch item. It is so quick and easy, and the best part is that you can make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've made this dish for all 3 meals (but not in the same day, of course). *NOTE: You could also throw in some beaten eggs and shredded cheese for a super simple breakfast omelet, frittata or quiche (see photos) that the whole family would love. And if you did happen to make a full-blown corned beef and cabbage dinner, use the leftovers (following steps #4, #5 and #7) for a simple and quick meal. Endless possibilities with this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (20 ounce) package Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onion
  • 4 cups prepackaged coleslaw mix (shredded, bagged)
  • 1 (12 ounce) canned corned beef, diced (or 2 - 7 oz cans)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Pour the potatoes into a dutch oven or (large sauce pan) and fill with just enough cold water to cover the potatoes by 2". Add the salt to the water and stir.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. When water begins to boil, turn the heat down and simmer the potatoes (covered, stirring occasionally) for approx 5-6 minutes.
  3. Now add the shredded coleslaw mix to the pot, return to a simmer, and continue (covered, stirring occasionally) for another 6-8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, dice up the can(s) of corned beef, (roughly the same size as the potatoes).
  5. Place the vegetable oil in a large skillet.
  6. Drain potato and coleslaw when they are cooked thru.
  7. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat and add in the diced corned beef. Fry for approx 3 minutes, then toss in your potato and slaw mixture. Fry for approx 5 minutes (stirring occasionally) until meat and veggies are crisped to your liking. Season to taste. It's as simple as that. You have your meal without the time and work. You may also choose to add some beaten eggs and shredded cheese to this recipe and make it into a breakfast omelet, frittata or quiche (see photos). The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

This was truly delicious! I left out the cole slaw, just because I didn't have any, but I bet it would be great with it. Thanks for posting, next St. Patty's day I'll make it with leftovers! I did make the eggs on the side, thogh.

I made this for my wife and I. We made it into a scrambled egg style of dish, using our leftover Sunday dinner. It definitely could use some more seasoning than what is called for, but still it was quite good. I added some swiss cheese to the egg and hash scramble. We did enjoy this dish.
