On hash

  • 675g golden or russet potatoes (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of white vinegar
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 285 g of asparagus
  • 1 fresh chili pepper
  • 60 ml lard (or vegetable oil)
  • 340 g roast pork shoulder (chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

To serve

  • Thinly sliced spring onion
  • Fried eggs (optional)
  • Warmed Corn Tortillas (optional)

  • For the hash, put the potatoes in a pot and cover with 2 liters of cold water. Add the vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until tender.
  • Drain the potatoes, then set aside.

  • Carefully add 1 teaspoon of fat (or vegetable oil) to the pan, toss to coat the vegetables, and season lightly with salt and pepper.

  • Season lightly with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is golden brown and crisp on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Add the potatoes and season lightly with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are dark brown and crispy on all sides, about 20 minutes.
  • Add the cilantro, chili powder, and cumin and cook, stirring often, until the spices are fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Return the pork, asparagus, and chili to the pan, stir, and continue to cook until all the ingredients are heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Before serving, sprinkle with scallions and/or cilantro and top with fried eggs. Serve with warmed tortillas, lime and salsa.

Instead of tortillas, you can simply serve toasted bread. It’s best to toast it until golden in the best toasters that have passed our review!

How did hash as a food originate?

Hash is a mixture of food cut into small pieces. The term comes from the French hacher, meaning “to chop”. Learn more about hashing in this article on our website .

The concept of hash probably dates back to the earliest times, when cooks diced whatever ingredients they had on hand and threw them into a pan to prepare a hot meal.

The first recipe for hash appeared in England in the 14th century. The term “hash” was given to dishes where leftover meat was simply chopped.

An 18th century “superb hash” recipe adds cayenne pepper, herbs, onions, spices (nutmeg) to the recipe, then thins it with stock or gravy and adds mushroom mash and stews cold chopped beef in it.

Hash recipes are found all over the world, and everywhere you can find something extra. There’s everything from pickled beetroot in Denmark to Worcestershire sauce in England to tomato sauce and lots of garlic in Portugal and Brazil.

To make a meat hash, chopped meat is usually mixed with chopped onions, chopped potatoes and spices.

And it is most often served with fried or poached eggs and toast.

It can be served for breakfast, but it can also be served for lunch or dinner with a salad. Make it special by adding some of these enhancements to the recipe, such as crispy and sliced bacon, grated or sliced cheese, fresh herbs (chives, parsley), garlic, and something to nibble on like toasted tortillas, chips, green peas, chili peppers, ketchup sriracha, sour cream. Hash also goes well with sauces such as cheddar cheese sauce, béarnaise, hollandaise, tomato sauce. You can spice it up with other spices and ingredients, such as Chinese five-spice mixture, curry, red chili, spring onions, hard-boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini.

You don’t have to strictly stick to beef or pork, it can also be prepared from duck or other poultry, fish and crustaceans, lamb, steak, or venison.
