When I was a little girl, my mother always fixed hash. It was one of my favorite meals. So I called her up and asked "Mom, how do you make your hash?" I knew she used left over roast beef. She started to tell me how she boiled her potatoes with onion.... "But mom, my potatoes are already cooked. I cooked them with my roast" She told me she wasnt sure because she always cooked her potatoes fresh, she never had left over potatoes. The only thing she used left over was the roast and gravy. "Gravy? You used left over gravy? I thought you made a roux?" So to make a long phone conversation short and not bore you, here's what I came up with.
I bought a large roast and cooked it in the crockpot with potatoes and carrots Friday. Saturday we had leftovers for lunch. Today, I still had 1/3 of the roast and several potatoes left and decided to make hash since my husband and son have never ate it. Here's how I made it:
3-4 cups of broth (I cook my roast with 1 package of Lipton Onion soup mix and 2 beef boullion cubes) FREE
4-6 potatoes (of course, mine were already quartered and cooked. I just heated them up in the microwave) 1.00
1- 1 1/2 lbs left over roast, cubed & heated in microwave 2.00
2 envelopes brown gravy mix 1.00
Combine broth and gravy mix together and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and roast. Simmer until all is thoroughly hot. Do not stir, or roast beef will fall apart. Serve over bread.
