Potato and Corn Skillet Hash

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Sides


  • 3 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 2 ears of corn, kernels cut off
  • Black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs (such as parsley, dill and/or chives)


  1. Spread the potatoes in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Add 2 cups water, the vinegar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce the heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook, stirring halfway through, until the water evaporates and the potatoes are softened, about 20 minutes.

  2. Increase the heat to medium high and add the olive oil. Cook, without stirring, until the potatoes are very browned on the bottom, 5-10 minutes. Using a firm metal spatula, scrape up the potatoes from the bottom of the skillet. Continue to cook, stirring and scraping often, until the potatoes are a rich golden brown and crisp all over, 20-30 more minutes. Add 1 to 2 more tbsp. olive oil as needed if the potatoes are too dry. Remove to a plate.

  3. Add the corn to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Return the potatoes to the skillet, stir well and season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and stir in about half the herbs. Top with the remaining herbs.
