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.

  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.
