Panackelty - My Grandma's Baked Corned Beef and Potatoes

My grandma's recipe, an easy and tasty way mid-week meal made with corned beef, potatoes and onions - simple and packed with flavour. Panackelty is a corruption of the word Pan Haggerty Panackelty is a baked dish consisting of meat, usually corned beef, bacon or lamb chops, and root vegetables (mainly potatoes and onions) which is left to bake throughout the day in a pot on low heat. Originating in the Sunderland area of North East England, the dish was a favourite of working-class families and was traditionally eaten on Monday as the leftover meat and vegetables from the previous day’s meal could be used. A local version of the popular dish of Shepherd's Pie or Cottage Pie. I have a vegetarian recipe for this recipe, Recipe #423399. Historical Note: The families of miners and shipyard workers would often prepare this meal as it could be slow cooked by a housewife during the day while she continued with other household tasks. A hungry worker coming home would also be especially satisfied with the high in fat and carbohydrate content of the dish. There are endless interpretations of the dish, with different families using different ingredients. Other popular panackelty concoctions will include bacon, sausages, black pudding, beef stock, and occasionally pork or lamb chops and additional vegetables such as carrots. The vegetarian version is called Pan Haggerty, and it is thought that the meat version is a corruption of that word.

Cook's Notes

I used Yukon Gold yellow-fleshed potatoes for my mashed potatoes. You could also use Russets, if you like.

If you'd like, you can make the mashed potatoes ahead and cover and refrigerate. If you can, take them out of the fridge a bit early, so they can come up to room temperature before baking.

Top Tip! Be sure not to skip the step of reducing the liquid in the skillet before adding the corned beef. This process concentrates the flavours of the Worcestershire and Ketchup and make for a fuller flavoured finished dish.

After you have added the corned beef, simmer the mixture until there is just a bit of liquid in the pan, but don't cook it until ALL the liquid has evaporated. This will keep your corned beef layer moist as it cooks in the oven.

The cheddar cheese and breadcrumb topping is optional. You can skip if you like and you will still have a very nice dish. Since I've never been one to "skip the cheese", I usually add it :)

My favourite way to eat this is with a generous dollop of ketchup on the side, if you'd like to try that.

At my house, this dish served 2. Me and a very, very hungry husband. I'll call it 3 servings, as it is more like 3 average servings. If you are serving more, just double the recipe and cook up in a larger dish.

Corned Beef and Potato Pie

This is one of those dishes that is made from simple things which most of us probably have in our cupboards and larders at any given time. It is incredibly easy to make and quite delicious.

The simplicity of it might cause one to believe that it's not special in any way, but that is where you would be very wrong. This is probably one of the most delicious supper dishes that you could ever want to eat.

Admittedly it is not all that attractive to look at. In all truth it looks a bit like a dog's dinner. Don't let what it looks like put you off.

This is a case where you truly cannot judge a book by it's cover. If you pass this by, you are missing out on a real gem. Its a tried and true, family favourite, having been a staple on British tables for many, many years.

I think I had been over here for several years when my friend Angie asked me had I ever eaten Corned Beef and Potato Pie. No, was my response. It was not something which I had ever heard of.

Angie assured me that it was a most delicious dish and quite economical too and gave me the recipe to add to my big blue binder of cooking treasures. My big blue binder is something which has been travelling with me all over the world since I was a very young woman. A teenager in fact.

It is fairly bulging with recipes that I have collected through the years from family and friends, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings. You just know that all of them are quite delicious. Yes, I have been a lover of food and recipes for a very long time.

All of the recipes in this binder are tried and trues, family favourites. You just know if someone cares enough to want to share a recipe with you that it is going to be one of their treasures. You cannot beat an edible treasure.

It has a delicious bottom filling, created by stewing corned beef with beefy juices, onions, seasonings, herbs and ketchup. This filling is topped with a fluffy mashed potato topping. Then there is a layer of crispy cheese topping blanketing the top. This spells a winning combination all round.

It is somewhat like a cheaper, but tastier cousin of cottage pie. I always keep tins of corned beef in my cupboard. Don't turn your nose up at it! Tinned corned beef is a real store cupboard gem! You can do ever so much with it!

I normally buy the lean tins of corned beef so it's not all that fatty. This Corned Beef and Potato Pie is really delicious. The first time I made it, I couldn't help myself, I went back for seconds. So did Todd. It very quickly became a real favourite around here.

It makes a perfect and economical weeknight supper, just perfect for January when the temperatures are dropping and our bank accounts are depleted after all of the indulgences of Christmas.

Cheap, cheerful and simple is the order of the day . . . and this is certainly all of that and more!

Try to make sure that the consistency of the pie filling is quite coarse to give a real “corned beef and potato” feel to the pie, rather than it just being a mush.

If you can’t get Worcestershire sauce, add ½ tsp of cumin powder instead.

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, divided
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans corned beef hash
  • 2 large eggs, divided
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese, divided

Rösti is a Swiss treat of shredded, cooked potatoes fried into a thick cake until golden. Here we fold in some onions and corned beef for a breakfast dish that gives a nod to corned beef hash.

Game plan: In Switzerland, rösti is so popular that many markets sell pre-grated, pre-cooked potatoes for use in this dish. We actually found that grating the raw potatoes and placing them in a strainer eliminates the need to pre-cook them, saving time without sacrificing flavor.

If so desired, you could sub in pastrami for the corned beef in this recipe. Store-bought is fine, or you could make your own.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Corned Beef project.

  • For the pastry: 180 grams plain flour
  • 100 grams butter, cold from the fridge, cut into small chunks
  • Ice cold water
  • For the filling: 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 large potatoes, chopped into wedges
  • 400 grams lean corned beef, cut into small pieces
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten or milk
  1. First, place the flour in a large mixing bowl, add the butter and rub into flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  2. Gradually add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to form a soft, smooth ball of dough. Wrap the dough in a clean tea towel and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Cook the chopped onion in boiling water for approximately 6 minutes until soft.
  4. Drain the onions but reserve the water (which will now be lurid green in color) and set aside.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  6. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring potatoes to a boil for 20 minutes and then mash them in a large bowl.
  7. Stir in corned beef, onions, salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes. Mix it all together and if necessary add some of the reserved onion water to make it soft but firm in consistency. Taste the pie mixture to check the seasoning and adjust as necessary.
  8. Take out dough from the fridge, divide it into two and roll out making sure that one half is large enough to line a large ovenproof dinner plate and the other half large is enough to use as a pastry lid.
  9. Line an ovenproof plate with half of the dough and then pour the corned beef mixture on top of it. Brush the edges of the pastry with water so that the pastry lid sticks. Place the other half of dough as the pastry lid on the pie and brush with a little milk or beaten egg.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven until the pastry is nicely browned, for about 25-30 minutes.
  11. Serve potato pie either warm or cold.
You can add a little Tabasco and Worcester sauce to the pie filling to give its flavor a new dimension.

First, make the filling by peeling and boiling the potatoes. In the meantime, make the pastry by putting the flour, butter, and shortening or lard into a food processor. Pulse until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add cold water, and when the pastry forms into a ball, it is done. Cool the dough for at least 30 minutes before using it. Continue to watch John Kirkwood tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details on how to make the filling.

Next, once all of the components are finished, assemble the pie with the pastry and filling. Brush the whole surface of the pie crust with an egg wash and poke vent holes on top with a fork. Bake in a preheated oven at 375F for 30 minutes.

The pastry on this pie looks light and buttery. You can serve this corned beef and potato pie immediately, but it’s best for it to sit and cool off for at least 10 minutes.
