This roast beef hash recipe can be made with a leftover roast, or with a fresh-from-the-oven roast. It’s not only delicious and filling, but it’s a great way to save the roast if it comes out too tough to eat otherwise.
I’ve added potatoes, carrots and onions, along with a generous amount of drippings/broth to give this lots of flavor.
It’s a family friendly recipe, and makes for great leftovers for lunch the next day.
The Ingredients for Making a Roast Beef Hash
Olive oil. You need a bit of oil to get the onions and garlic sauteed up. Any oil will work. Or, use butter! That’s delicious too.
Onion. White or yellow will do. The onion goes really well with the beef to enrich the flavors.
Garlic. So does the garlic! It’s always good with just about any type of meat.
Roast Beef. Use leftover beef, or a fresh beef roast. Cutting it up in small chunks helps to soften and enhance the flavors, especially if you have cooked the roast at a higher temperature.
Beef Broth or Drippings. If you’re using fresh beef, use the drippings. It’s the best! But if you’re using leftovers and have already turned the drippings into gravy, beef broth is the next best thing.
Potatoes. Any kind of potatoes will work for this. Russet or golden is usually what I go with. Red potatoes are good too.
Carrots. I buy mine in a big bag. The carrots are a fairly good size, so two is my general rule. If you’re using the really skinny ones, go with three or maybe even four! Carrots are delicious when prepared this way, so don’t worry about them throwing anything off!
Flour. I like to add a bit of whole wheat flour at the very end just to thicken the sauce a bit. Another flour or another thickening agent will work too.
