We had a pretty big Prime Rib for Christmas for the sole purpose of having lots of leftovers so I didn’t have to cook for several days. I pretend to be exhausted after “slaving over a hot stove” all day and lounge on the couch after dinner, and then go on strike for a few more days. For some reason, it works every year. Or maybe it really doesn’t and my family has just been humoring me all these years.
Believe it or not, I did not get any leftovers. Stunning. I guess when you wait for something for a full year, you get excited. And also, when you’re a teenaged boy, you eat a lot. There was exactly one large slice left which turned out to be the perfect amount to make…
Homemade Roast Beef Hash
1/2 – 3/4 lb left over Prime Rib or Roast Beef, cubed
3- 4 potatoes, chopped into small pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 TBSP butter
- Heat some oil that will tolerate high temp on med high in a cast iron pan if you have one. Add butter.
- When the butter has melted, add the potatoes, salt, and pepper and cook for about five minutes. Add the chopped onion. Stir frequently to prevent burning but not so much that nothing browns.
- After the potatoes have browned (about ten minutes), add the beef and cook until heated.
- Serve instantly.
My kids have never had Hash of any kind. I am happy to report that My Faithful Assistant was very happy with his dinner. He was the only one home. This came as a relief to me since the rest of his day was disappointing thanks to his apparently incredibly jealous dog and an unexpected ending to a movie. He has cheered up a ton and I didn’t have to go to Chick-Fil-A or Joann Fabrics!
Typical of me, this would have been a much more helpful recipe if it had been posted three or four days ago. I’m really sorry about that. I’ve been super busy the past few days sitting on the couch, knitting, binge watching Dr. Phil, and “recovering” from all the hard work of Christmas another epic Christmas Feast.
