Roast Beef Hash

Colleen Sowa


Old family recipe of my great grandmother Ellen Kay Sullivan, who gave it to daughter-in-law Mabel Kennedy Sullivan & told her, "This is Frank's favorite breakfast! He says it sticks to his ribs!"

When my parents married, grandma Mabel repeated this to my mother & my mother told me every time she made it!

Dad said he was a "Meat and Potatoes kind of guy." Must run in the family, because I am a Meat and Potatoes kind of girl.

I love telling my daughter & grandchildren all of the stories along with the recipes, so a little bit of each of them lives on...

How to Make Roast Beef Hash


  1. Use left over cooked roast, cut into bite size pieces.

  3. Add remaining ingredients to skillet along with the amount of water on gravy mix packets.
  4. Cook until the liquid cooks down and is mostly absorbed.
