GeekFood #7: Southern Hash


We dip way down in the deep south for this one, and we think you’ll like it:

Meat (ham or roast works best, but chicken or a mix will work well also) 4-8 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and quartered salt and pepper ketchup dash hot sauce(optional) water/broth to keep moist.

Hash is made to your taste. You can choose how much meat versus potatoes/onions you want.

Boil your meat until tender and falling apart. You can do this with a pressure cooker, crock pot or stew pot.

Cook potatoes and onions until they start becoming tender. This can be done with the meat or separately. Be careful not to overcook the potatoes. If you prefer thicker hash, by hand pull apart meat into very fine threads. Otherwise, take beef, potatoes and onions in approximately equal proportions and put them through a meat grinder using the medium grinder attachment or a food processor so that they are well mixed and ground.

Place mix into a pot and add remaining ingredients to your taste. Place over low to medium heat to re-warm. Serve and enjoy!

  6. Vinegar is made from alcoholic beverages. For instance Rice vinegar is made from rice wine, (Saki). Its usually a wine that has been “soured”.
    Form The Wiki: Vinegar is a sour-tasting liquid made from the oxidation of ethanol in wine, cider, beer, fermented fruit juice, or nearly any other liquid containing alcohol.
    The word Vinegar comes from the Old French vin aigre, meaning “sour wine.”

  10. Hi!

    Making hash is one of my favorite ways to use leftover steak or sausage.

    I precook cubed potatoes with a little melted butter in the microwave while I start browning my onions in the skillet. Once the onions are browned, I add in the par-cooked potatoes and start letting them get brown and crispy. Once the potatoes are mostly brown, add in the already-cooked leftover meat of your choice. You can mix in a scrambled egg, some frozen corn, some black beans or whatever you like. Season to taste and enjoy! I plan to feature this recipe on a future episode of For Whatever Reason.

    The Podcast Junky sent me your way, so I’ll add you to my iPod.

    For Whatever Reason
