Katherine Broderick’s Saddleworth Potato Hash (Pronounced: P’tater ‘Ash)
A cheap and easy one pot recipe from my neck o’ the woods.
Serve with crusty bread, salted butter and lashings of brown sauce.
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into bitesize chunks.
1 onion, diced
4 carrots peeled and chopped
500g lean minced beef
2 beef stock cubes
Dried mixed herbs
Salt, pepper to taste
1. Gently sweat the onions in a little oil until they are softened but not brown.
2. Add the mince and lightly brown.
3. Add the carrots, potatoes and herbs to the pan.
3.Add water to cover and bring to the boil.
4. Add 2 stock cubes or gravy granules and salt and pepper to taste.
5. Simmer until the veg is cooked through and the stock has reduced and thickened. The stew shouldn’t be too dry.
6. Serve in generous bowls with crusty bread and butter. We always had it with vinegar and brown sauce.
