Ingredients (5)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website. For dips, make and enjoy your dip creation. Then, refrigerate within 2 hours or discard.

Steps (4)

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 250°F.
  2. 2
    Press the grated potatoes between a few layers of paper towel until most of the moisture has been released. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, with the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of dressing; mix until well-coated.
  3. 3
    In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of oil until shimmering. Working in batches, drop the potato mixture by the tablespoon into the hot oil and cook until golden, about 5 minutes per side (add remaining oil as needed).
  4. 4

    Keep the cooked potato pancakes warm in the oven and fry the corned beef slices in the same skillet, turning once, about 3 minutes or until crisp. Serve each pancake topped with a sprinkling of chives and the remaining dressing on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twist to an old favorite Growing up my mother use to make us potatoe cakes for some breakfast for dinner meals. She never did this exact recipe or used the beef. But i made a few of these and they reminded me of her. Plus they had a unique twist to them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Potato Pancakes! Simply put, my adult son prefers pastrami to corned beef, so I substituted on his serving.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy and delicious I made a doubled batch of these potatoes over the weekend for a late breakfast (because who wants to wake up early on the weekends!) and they came out perfect! One thing I did differently was instead of using a bunch of paper towels I just used one on the top and bottom to hold them (so they didn’t get lint in them) then used clean kitchen towels to press and absorb the moisture. Worked awesome and didn’t end up using half of a roll of paper towels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twist to Potato Pancakes Decided to try these as a different take on the usual potato pancakes. I left out the chives as I did not have any but these were tasty anyway. Easy to make. Followed recipe and they came out perfectly. Prefer HV dressing instead of the usual sour cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry the potatoes! This is a fairly simple recipe to make and a delicious final product. We found that the key to a better potato pancake is to make sure the cut potatoes are as dry as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tasty AND easy. I skipped the meat because I felt that corned beef could overwhelm the potatoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Way To Use Potatoes! I, like everyone else in America, loves the humble potato, but actually had never tried potato pancakes before. The photo looked very tasty, & right away I am craving this dish & wanting to try it. I thought my effort turned out pretty well...I'm not a great cook but it's hard to mess up potatoes that bad = )). I didn't make the meat part of the recipe however, as I was just not interested in that. These potato pancakes are very tasty & will definitely be making these again as this is an easy, quick & delish treat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious and Easy These are fast and easy to make. We don't eat corned beef, but they go equally well with any main protein.
