The most requested item on Saturday mornings at Russell's is the corned beef hash. They fry the potatoes in a mixture of butter and canola oil, which gives them perfectly brown edges while the insides stay soft and pillowy. The salty corned beef is slow-roasted separately and comes mixed in on the side.
