Sauté bacon, bell pepper, onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat until bacon is cooked and onion is translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Mix in corned beef hash and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, flipping sections of the hash occasionally, until browned, about 10 minutes.

Directions to Improve Canned Corned Beef Hash

You’ll need a medium to large skillet. You can use a cast iron skillet or whatever pan you prefer.

First thing, melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat. Make sure the entire surface is coated with the butter before you add the rest of the ingredients.

Pour the diced onions into the pan and sauté until they are translucent.

Next, empty the entire can of corned beef hash into the coated skillet, stir, and evenly distribute the contents.

Sprinkle the garlic powder and onion powder over the hash and continue to stir.

Since I like browned edges on the meat, I turn the burner up a little bit and continue cooking over medium high heat.

If you feel that medium-high heat is too hot, keep it on medium. You don’t want to burn this.

This entire process typically only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to this point. However, a lot depends on your stove and how hot the burner cooks.
