ROAST BEEF HASH

Roast Beef Hash
This is straight up comfort food in one dish!
Anytime we had left over Sunday pot roast,
Mother would turn this into the most aromatic and rich tasting hash!
This is a rustic and very man-lovin' dish!  
 
 

This is so very easy to throw together....roast beef, potatoes, onions and carrots....
all simmering in that rich beef broth......oh heavens to Betsy!


“Winter is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality,
the genial fire of charity in the heart!”
~Washington Irving



Mother's Roast Beef Hash
Left over Roast Beef, about 2-3 cups
3 medium potatoes, unpeeled and cut into large chunks
5-6 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 large onion, cut into chunks
1/2 cup water

Simply simmer on the stove, covered until all the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper! Simmer for about 1 hour. Serve with fresh hot bread. Men sometimes like this served over rice! Not me....just served in a beautiful soup bowl.....exactly like Mother did!

  2. Hash was my mother's favorite thing to make with leftovers! You show how reconstructing a dish can make an entirely new meal, XOXO

    1. Really Susan? Mother lived through the Depression, so I just assumed this was a dish she invented for leftover pot roast! Would love to hear how your Mother made hash!

  4. This looks delicious and perfect for a cold winter day. And it reminds me of my mother's Sunday pot roasts. Sunday dinners were the special time of the week when I was growing up. She often invited others to join us.

  7. I wasn't going to cook the entire roast as there is just the two of us..but now I think I will. That just looks so good..and it's exactly the kind of dinner PH would love. As far as cold winter nights...for Southern California you can forget it! It's a sad, sad, situation. The rest of the country is getting storms that are just running along that mountainous ridge of high and low pressure that has been hanging around since around last October and is heading up north and across the nation freezing everything. Too warm, too dry and just plain no winter at all! Your hash is going to make us feel at least like it SHOULD be winter. *sigh*

    1. Miss Mona, there are just the two of us also. A roast will last at least three meals. The flavor of the hash is so flavorful from the roast beef, it is just so good! Hope you try it....such an old, easy recipe! It would be a little sad not to have any winter at all. But right now, just be thankful that you don't have to deal with all that snow and ice!
