Pulled Pork Hash
We recently had a party and my husband smoked 80 pounds of pork. While it was a big hit at the party, we did have some left over. I have been coming up with new recipes to incorporate the pulled pork leftovers into our meals and WOW has it been fun not to mention delicious! I had no idea how versatile pulled pork was and am thrilled to be able to use it up in such mouth-watering ways.
If you don’t happen to have excessive amounts of pulled pork like I do, feel free to use sausage, bacon, or hamburger in your hash. Most proteins work really well!
How to Make Hash
Growing up I refused to eat hash because the name scared me. How could anything called “hash” taste good? Boy did I miss out.
When making hash you can prepare it fresh or use leftover ingredients. Meat, roasted veggies, left-over veggies that need to be used so they don’t go bad—it all works in a hot cast iron skillet with potatoes. I used 3 kinds of peppers in addition to the onion and garlic, but you could swap out your favorite veggies. I think onions and garlic are a must, but the peppers should definitely be added based on your preferences. Other great options are mushrooms, corn, spinach, brussel sprouts, carrots, or even apples!
Most folks use corned beef in hash with a few fried eggs on top. But in reality, hash can be any combination of meat and potatoes. Learning how to make breakfast hash is easy because hash can basically involve anything. We find ourselves making it for any meal, not just breakfast!
I stuck with the basics in this recipe and add cheddar cheese, but you could incorporate any of your favorites! We also love gruyere, muenster, jack, and pepper jack cheeses. You can add as little or as much as you would like! Or, if you are looking for a healthier option, omit the cheese altogether.
Potatoes in Hash
This recipe calls for 5 large potatoes boiled and diced. I used peeled red potatoes and I love how they stand up to boiling. I diced my potatoes into large cubes, but some folks (my husband!) prefer them into much smaller cubes. If you want really crispy potatoes smaller cubes is the way to go. If you want to save some time in this recipe you can use frozen cubed potatoes which are called “Diced Hash Potatoes” or “Southern Style Hash Brown Potatoes” in your frozen food section of the grocery store. And yes, you can certainly opt for traditional hash browns, which are grated potatoes.
Want a REALLY fun twist? You can make this recipe over french fries and serve it for dinner!
