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 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 5 out of 5 by from Family chief Easy to make. Great taste with the addition of H V. I trippled the size of receipt my family could not get enough of them.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for a quick addition to a meal I wasn't real crazy about these but it was easy to prepare and went great as a side dish to our meal. I like my potato pancakes crispy around the edges and not too greasy and nice an thin. These were just OK, but my family didn't complain.
