So this is working out perfectly, unlike everything else in my immediate present. I promised Sharon I’d make roast beef hash for her tonight, I thought I maybe could write up the recipe for the hash in this post, and the New England Patriots play the New York Giants tonight and it’s on television and we get the station. Yessirree, that comes together perfectly. First, the hash.
I’ve found that hash is best made from left overs and that’s the case with the hash tonight. We have the remnants of a ribeye roast to use for the meat. Also great for hash are corned beef, ham, pastrami or turkey, but tonight’s is left over ribeye all the way. If you do use another of the meats, the rest of the recipe doesn’t change at all.
– So basically I cut the meat into small cubes, (your choice the size), and remove the excess fat as you cube the meat. I had about two pounds of meat for this project.
– Then I cut two large onions into fairly large diced size and I small dice two whole heads of garlic. Don’t wimp out and use less.
– Last for cutting is the previously baked potatoes. Your potatoes have to be baked before they are fried with the hash, either several days before or just before you start to put the hash together. Tonight we didn’t have any leftover potatoes so I baked five medium sized red potatoes this afternoon. You cut the potatoes any way you want. I slice them like home fries but the hash is just as good when you mash the soft potatoes into the mixture as it fries.
– Putting it all together is easy. The whole thing is easy! You first fry in a large frying pan the garlic and the onions. Cook until tender, about 5 – 10 minutes. Then you dump in the cubed meat, fry for a while, and last you throw in the potatoes. I like to fry this whole mixture at a low heat for a long time, until everything is nice and homogenized and the potatoes get slightly crispy.
And there you have it, home made hash. Salt and pepper to taste.
The Patriots are playing the Giants tonight on Fox and this post will be in your mailbox long before the game starts at 8:20. I know many of you think football is a dumb game, but I don’t care. I truly love watching it, just as I loved playing in high school and college, and I’m GaGa over Tom Brady and Bill Bellicheck.
