Weekend Cooking..Beets in Two Parts.




Last week, we had that recipe for corned beef...so now I had left over corned beef! 

After the last St. Patrick's Day, I believe I made corned beef hash with the leftovers, which is great, but how could I change it up a bit this time.
Happily, just in time, I saw this recipe, "Hash, Re-Hash", in the Wall Street Journal. For a variation, lets make some Red Flannel Hash.

The author,  Sarah Karnasiewicz, explains the appeal better than I ever could...
"The rugged beets that lend the dish its color and its colorful name; the soft scraps of carrot and parsnip; the waxy potatoes, their freckled skin still clinging; the ruddy corned beef: Apart, they're anything but sexy.
But dice and season and scatter them in a searingly hot pan. Watch their edges crisp and blush as the beets bleed. Slide it all onto a plate and crown the lot with a fried egg, as bright and cheerful as a buttercup.
You'll fall, and hard."

  1. We love beets! And yes, don't be tossing those beet greens in the compost heap. They're yummy too. We can't seem to get enough greens -- I'd be happy to make them every night.

  4. Oh my....thanks for the reminder about the beets. Both Mr. Tutu and I are beeet fans and I had planned to make CB hash for easy dinner tonite. I was wondering about a green, and now you've solved my dilemma. I'll skip the parsnips, only because I don't want to make a trip downtown to the market. I have everything else on hand. Yumm.

  5. My husband loves beets, being the good Polish boy that he is, but no beets for me, no thank you. This is considered a fatal flaw when we visit the in-laws.

  6. both dishes look good. I did try to buy a corned beef brisket on Thursday, but there were none left in the store. Didn't realize that it was so popular.

  8. That hash is making my mouth water - it looks so delicious! Mmmm... I can almost taste it! I didn't get any corned beef this year, as I was out of the house almost every night for the past two weeks. I'm regretting it now!

  9. I make hash quite often, but I've never made the red flannel version. Aren't beet greens good? I made them for the first time last summer and adored them.

  10. The color in red flannel has is from beets? Thanks for helping me learn something new today. I'm not a fan of beets at all, but the greens recipe looks great - cannellini beans for me, please!

  12. We love beets at our house but usually have them roasted as side dish. Both recipes sound interesting.
