My mother made a variation of this dish every time she had leftover roast beef. The only difference was she didn't add eggs. I was so pleased to find this recipe because I had never been able to duplicate hers.

1Cook, peel and cool (or refrigerate) the potatoes. These can be leftovers or be cooked earlier in the day. Cut the potato into 1/4 inch-thick slices or cube.
2Slice the cooked beef, then cut into 1/2-inch squares, approximately.
3Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large pan and brown the onion. Remove from pan.
4Heat 1 Tbsp. oil and 1 Tbsp. butter in the pan and add the potatoes. Brown one side without stirring, then flip, add the beef and onions to the pan and season with salt, ground black pepper, a pinch of dried marjoram and a pinch or two of caraway seeds.
5Continue browning until heated through and crispy, stirring or flipping as needed. Add oil or butter as necessary.
6In another pan fry 4 eggs in butter.
7Serve hash with fried egg on top, sprinkled with parsley. Good side choices are cooked cabbage or a green salad.
