Corned Beef Hash


Corned Beef Hash


Ingredients

* 2-3 Tbsp unsalted butter
* 1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
* 2-3 cups finely chopped, cooked corned beef
* 2-3 cups chopped cooked potatoes, preferably Yukon gold
* Salt and pepper
* Chopped fresh parsley


1 Heat butter in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) on medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes


2 Mix in the chopped corned beef and potatoes. Spread out evenly over the pan. Increase the heat to high or medium high and press down on the mixture with a metal spatula.

3 Do not stir the potatoes and corned beef, but let them brown. If you hear them sizzling, this is good. Use a metal spatula to peak underneath and see if they are browning. If nicely browned, use the spatula to flip sections over in the pan so that they brown on the other side. Press down again with the spatula. If there is too much sticking, you can add a little more butter to the pan. Continue to cook in this manner until the potatoes and the corned beef are nicely browned.

4 Remove from heat, stir in chopped parsley. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper, and add salt to taste.

Beef Stroganoff


Copied from an old Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided 1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 can (10 1/2 oz) condensed beef consomme or broth (I like the added richness of consomme)
1 pound beef sirloin steak, cut across the grain, diagonally in 1/4-inch-wide strips 1 cup sour cream or creme fraiche
5 tablespoons butter, divided 2 tablespoons sherry or cognac
1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced 3 cups hot cooked egg noodles
1/2 cup onion, chopped paprika and parsley, for garnish
1 clove garlic, minced

Instructions for Beef Stroganoff
Combine 1 tablespoon flour and the salt. Dredge the meat in the flour mixture. Heat a large skillet, then add 2 tablespoons butter. When melted, add the sirloin strips and brown quickly on all sides. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the onion is barely tender.

Remove the meat and mushrooms from the skillet. Add 3 tablespoons butter to the pan drippings. When melted, blend in 3 tablespoons flour and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Slowly pour in the consomme. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Return the meat and mushrooms to the skillet and simmer until meat is heated through, about 2 minutes. Combine sour cream with a little of the hot broth (this tempers the sour cream and helps to prevent curdling), then stir in the sour cream mixture and sherry. Stir briefly. Heat through but do not let boil, just simmer for a few minutes before serving.

Serve over hot buttered noodles. Garnish with paprika and parsley, if desired.
