Thank you!If you’ve been to some of the famous Hawaii Okazuya plate lunch places, you’ll know that Corned Beef Patties are one of the regular items on the menu. I’m not really sure how it ended up being such a popular island food, but I do remember my grandmother making this for our lunch boxes and loving it. The patties can be eaten for breakfast with eggs and rice, for lunch with a mac salad, or for dinner with some salad. Really, Corned Beef Patties are great at any time of the day.
Corned Beef Patties
The first step to making Corned Beef Patties is to boil potatoes and dice the potatoes into small cubes. Set the potatoes aside and heat oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Add the corned beef into a large bowl and smash with fork or spoon.
Add the diced potatoes, chopped green onions, eggs, and spices. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
Normally, I would use finely minced onions, but my oldest son hates the texture of onions, so I substitute onion powder in its place.
In a shallow bowl, add flour and dust both hands with it. Take about 1/4 cup of the corned beef mix and shape into a large ball, adding more flour to your hands if needed. Roll the ball in the flour and flatten into a 3″ round patty. Dust off any flour.
Add the patties to the hot pan and cook until golden brown on each side. Place cooked patties on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any excess oil. The patties should have a nice crispy outside with a soft moist inside.
Serve with ketchup and garnish with chopped green onions. Enjoy!
