Keto Corned Beef Hash
This keto corned beef hash recipe is perfect for low-carb diets. Corned beef has the perfect amount of fat for a keto diet. Substituting cauliflower for potatoes brings the carb levels way down.
Corned beef is my favorite meal for breakfast and brunch, I order it anytime I see it on a menu. I’m always super disappointed if it turns out to be hash from a can, that’s the worst. I always ask if the corned beef hash is made in-house, if it’s from a can then I don’t want it.
Keto Corned Beef Hash Stats according to Fitbit
My Fitbit has been a big help keeping track of macros (macronutrients, the breakdown of fat, protein, and carbs in food) For my keto diet I aim to get 75% of my calories from fat, 20 percent from protein and 5 percent from carbohydrates per day. I log my food intake on the Fitbit app to keep track of how I’m doing. If you would like to check out more about the Fitbit there is an Amazon affiliate link HERE
To make corned beef hash fit a high fat/low carb/moderate protein Ketogenic diet I’ve made a few adjustments. The biggest change comes from substituting cauliflower for potatoes. Now, I know what you’re going to say. “Cauliflower ain’t potatoes!” Yes, I know but if you want to lose weight on a keto diet then make the switch. Cauliflower doesn’t taste like potatoes but it gives a good texture and the cauliflower goes great with the corned beef. It’s so delicious, I think you’ll like it. Eliminate high carb onions from the traditional corned beef hash recipe. Substituted 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers for half the cauliflower if you like, to add a bit of color.

Corned beef is made from beef brisket that has been brined in a salt solution. Brisket tends to be a fatty cut of meat but it is usually trimmed well before processing. Sometimes I make my own corned beef but this time I didn’t have the patience, I just picked up a package from the grocery store. Check the label to be sure the package of corned beef has no carbohydrates. Cook the corned beef according to package labels, it’s usually boiled for a couple of hours. I cooked my corned beef in 2 cups of water in my Instant Pot pressure cooker in about 90 minutes. Remove the corned beef from the water and store in your refrigerator until ready to use.
