Hamburger Hash

AC47043B-693B-498F-ADEE-07CC936AF410Hamburger hash is something I haven’t made in a long time. It use to be one of our staple meals with ground beef but lately it has been hamburgers or tacos that it has been used for. Had enough of both of those lately so time for a change. My first thought was Salisbury steak but no mushroom soup in the house so it was on to plan B. My wife likes hamburger hash with macaroni in it but she is at our daughters for the day. So I got to make it the way I like it with potatoes. She still said after she had eaten it that it would of been better with macaroni. Hamburger hash is a very simple thing to make and I have used a bunch of different things in it over the years. It is another recipe that really doesn’t have any rules attached to it. Still I had to play with the potatoes, could of just cubed them and cooked them with everything else. Frying potatoes always bumps up there flavour so that’s what I did in the morning. Even with that extra step it is still a very simple thing to make, and a very good meal.
2 potatoes cut in bite sized cubes, boiled for 10 minutes drained and fried in 2 teaspoons of butter. Salt and pepper the potatoes while cooking.

1 pound ground beef cooked and drained

1 large onion diced

1 large rib celery chopped

1 roma tomato diced

4 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon chopped chives

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 cup beef broth

salt and pepper to taste

corn starch slurry made with a little beef broth to thicken

preheat a frying pan on medium heat. Add the celery and onion, cook for about 5 minutes stirring often. Add the tomato, garlic, salt and pepper, potatoes, and Italian seasoning and cook for about 2 minutes. Add beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, return the ground beef to the pan. Mix well and reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the chives and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Add the corn starch slurry, when thickened serve.
