Steak Hash Over Waffle Fried Potatoes
With a little shoulder problem this past week, sitting at the computer and cooking have been the last thoughts on my mind. I hope you all had a great holiday weekend as Kenny cooked up another fantastic dinner for us on the grill. This holiday was kind of quiet which was fine by me as I did not feel like cooking for a crowd, oh Hell No! I have spent a little time in my kitchen and this week’s posts are just a couple of simple and easy dishes husband and I whupped up using potatoes!
This month is Potato Month and not too long ago I came across a site on Yahoo by a Dan Shumski about cooking with a waffle iron (cookbook, Will It Waffle) and my curiosity got the better of me, just had to go there. He had some hash browns pressed in a waffle iron and I was hooked immediately. He also had a Mac’n’cheese recipe I will be trying! We had done some steaks on the grill and they were a little tough. Kenny, ready for lunch thought he’d clean something up for me out of the frig and mentioned the steaks. I told him I had plans for them, do not touch! We hadn’t had hash in awhile and when I make it, the potatoes never get crispy enough for me without the meat becoming too dry, so I incorporated Dan’s idea of doing them separately in the waffle iron and then topping them off with the hash that I browned lightly in the frying pan with extra onions.
- For the two of us:
- 2 small, medium cooked steaks, ground with 1 small sweet onion, plus extra onion chopped small
- 1small sweet onion minced for the potatoes
- 2 medium potatoes, grated fine ( I grated mine medium and wish I had done them smaller )
- Salt and pepper
- Unsalted butter
- Bacon fat
- Place grated potatoes in ice cold water for about ten minutes after grating; remove from water and pat as dry as possible.
- Add chopped onion with the potatoes with some salt and pepper.
- Brush waffle iron on both sides with melted butter and set on medium.
- Place potatoes in mounds in the waffle iron, close lid and after a couple of minutes, press lid down somewhat. Potatoes should take about another 8 minutes to cook crispy.
- Meanwhile, to a little melted bacon fat, cook hash over medium heat on both sides until warmed through and onion is done to your liking.
- Top potato hash with the meat mixture and enjoy.
Hope you enjoy!
