It costs like the very dickens to get the deli to saw off 1/4-thick slices of corned beef for hash but it beats the canned stuff by miles.
There's a compromise and it worked out well today: canned corned beef (not hash, just plan old corned beef), chopped up and cooked with diced fresh potatoes and a little onion. Not everyone's a fan of the brand* I used this morning and there's no question about it being full of things you should not be having every morning -- still, it certainly was tasty.
* This was the Hormel version, about as processed as Spam. Memory insists the Armour product had more meat-type texture.
