Making it S-T-R-E-T-C-H …. (Part 3 :)

Day #3

Potato Beef Hash is on the menu today!! 

Another flexible meal for the number of people you are serving.   I was serving 5 today and I used 3lbs of potatoes.  You can use more or less depending on what you need.  I typically figure about ½ lb of potatoes for each person.

The ingredients for this recipe are simple…  Potatoes, 2 cups leftover beef roast, 1 onion, salt and pepper.   Begin by scrubbing and cleaning and cutting up your potatoes and your onion (so they fit in your food processor)..

then using a food processor grate your potatoes.  While you are grating your potatoes also grate up your onion with them..

Put this into a large bowl and add your meat and salt and pepper and stir it up…


Heat a large frying pan or griddle to medium high.  When it is hot coat it with s olive oil.. 

Spread out a layer of the potato/meat mixture and let it cook until it is nicely browned..

I put a lid on it and cook it for about 5 minutes…

Then I turn it over and continue cooking it for about another 5 minutes, only this time without the lid..


If you have more potato mixture to cook up put the finished mix into the oven that is set on warm.. Cook up the rest of the mixture adding it to the finished hash in the oven…
 

When you are done it is time to eat!!  Serve with some catsup (at least for the kids) or salsa (for me and dad ;) and big green salad or green beans.. and enjoy!

  1. OH, I'm definitely going to try this. My dad and I actually made a different version of this the other day. We didn't want to go to the grocery store, so we just used what we had on hand. I've been really fortunate to buy large packages of hamburger meat...usually about three pounds...and they've always had a manager's coupon with them. So they work out to be less then $2 a pound. We divide them up into small portions, put them in plastic bags and put them in the freezer. It's been wonderful to have extra stored up. Any ways, we browned ground beef, then cubed the potatoes and cooked it all together with some butter. However, I'm going to give this a try. :) :) :) What a nice tasty meal and economical :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  4. Oooohhh that looks good. I'd be tempted to dump a bunch of homemade cheese sauce over the top!
