Breakfast is the best meal of the day. No really it is. While in California recently I had homemade real roast beef hash and I was reminded how good this can be. It was made with the crusty bits from the Prime rib the restaurant serves and came with eggs and a delicious hollandaise that was amazing.
My home version of this can be made with any scraps of beef that you might have. Left over steak, Roast Beef, even Short Ribs which is what I used. The key is to have shredded potatoes which you can make easily with a grater or buy in a bag. And the other key is to flavor the beef and potato mixture with lots of garlic and thyme and seasoning salt really well. I returned from my European vacation with a bottle of Maggi seasoning in tow. It's a flavoring salt that adds a depth of flavor to all sorts of things. It's really good.
I also skipped the hollandaise and opted for a sour cream based horseradish sauce that just really amped up the dish. Below is the recipe. Go crazy!!
Homemade Beef Hash and Eggs
4 eggs which you will fry sunny-side up or use a ring mold like I did and cook to fit directly on the stack of hash you will make.
2 cups potatoes shredded
1 cup really finely diced onions
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 /2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Maggi or Season salt
1 few shakes of worchestershire sauce
1 1/2 cup chopped left over beef
Fry potatoes and onions till crispy and brown
Add beef and seasonings
When heated through and ready to serve press mixture into 4, 4 inch ring molds set on 4 plates
Top with the fried eggs
Garnish with paprika and chopped parsley
Serve with horseradish sauce
( note you can just served this on a plate without a ring mold works just fine)
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons drained prepared horseradish
Salt and pepper to taste
