Breakfast Brunch Essentials: Easy Brisket Hash

Andy Anderson !


Got some leftover brisket… Well, here you go.

What I love about this hash recipe is that it can be made with whatever you have on hand. I happened to have some leftover brisket, but it will work with ham, chicken, or use more veggies and make it vegetarian.

In addition, I wanted something that was easy to put together, and didn’t require a lot of time tossing and sautéing.

I’m making this in a small cast-iron skillet and it will feed two “normal” people, or one hungry person.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Breakfast Brunch Essentials: Easy Brisket Hash


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Add the brisket, potatoes, onion, tomato, and egg to a small bowl, and thoroughly combine.
  4. Season with salt, and pepper, to taste.
  5. Add the grapeseed oil to a small cast-iron pan, or skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add the mixed ingredients to the pan, and spread out evenly.
  7. Let the pan sit over medium heat for 5 – 6 minutes without moving the pan.
  8. Chef’s Note: This will help to develop a nice crust on the bottom.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the hash over, and allow to cook for an additional 4 - 5 minutes.
  10. Chef's Note: The hardest part of this recipe is flipping the hash over... it takes a bit of practice.
    If it breaks up during the flipping, no worries, just serve it up as a "rustic" dish.
  11. Chef’s Note: By the end of the cooking time, the potatoes should be nice and tender.
  13. Serve in the skillet, for a rustic look, or make it fancy, and place on a separate plate. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on top and a slice of lemon, and tuck in. Enjoy.
  14. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
