  2. Heat two tablespoons of the oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for 6-8 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned.

  4. Transfer this mixture to an ovenproof dish.

  5. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil with the butter in a frying pan and fry the potatoes until tender and golden-brown.

  6. Preheat the grill to high.

  7. Spoon the potatoes on top of the meat mixture in the dish, then place under the grill for 4-6 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown.

  8. To serve, divide the corned beef hash among four serving plates. Top each portion with a poached egg and serve with brown sauce and tomato ketchup.
