St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and corned beef is a staple dish.

One of the best reasons to make it is for leftovers. You don't just have to rely on sandwiches. Tony Stallone with Peapod, came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio to show us how to make corned beef hash.

Tony's Tips For Buying Corned Beef:
1. Beware of the Sodium
Corned Beef can range from 550mg up to 1050mg per serving.

2. All corned beef is not created equal.
- There are 2 types of corned beef, point and brisket.
- Points are fattier, so if you like more fat this is the cut for you.
- Brisket or Flat is leaner, and in my opinion a more flavorful cut.

3. Don't let the price fool you - read the fine print
- Points are far cheaper, but there is more waste because of the fat.
- Brisket or Flats are more expensive but have less waste.

4. Save some for later
