A variation on a traditional hearty dish cooked in the North West of England. Traditionally cooked with potatoes, onions and carrots this dish replaces most of the potatoes with other white root vegetables to give the dish a great variety of ingredients but remain essentially the traditional dish. The meat is always beef though poor families would often have very little meat in the dish. This is the upmarket version with tinned stewing steak replacing the cheaper tinned corned beef. It is often accompanied with HP Brown sauce and pickled raw red cabbage, a bit like unsweetened sauerkraut. The steak is lower in fat and salt than corned beef so it is arguably healthier. However, it is the large proportion of vegetables that makes the dish very healthy regardless of the meat content. Vegetarians need only leave out the meat to have an ultra healthy version.

Recipe Ingredients for Vegetable Stewed Beef Hash

433 g Beef
900 g Boiled Potatoes, peeled, no salt
300 g Leek
110 g Onion
500 g Carrots
600 g Cabbage
350 g Celeriac
400 g Rutabagas
200 g Turnip
60 ml Vinegar Red Wine
2 Stock cubes

Recipe Directions for Vegetable Stewed Beef Hash

  1. Rutabagas (Swede), Turnip, Carrots, Potatoes should be peeled and diced into 1" cubes.

  2. Celeriac should be in 1/2" cubes. Cabbage, Leek & onion should be sliced into 1/2" strips or thinner but not too thin as they adds texture and crush.

  3. Steam all the vegetables until the potatoes and other roots are just cooked but not soft. About 10-15mins is the ideal cooking time. The final texture of the dish is not critical and is to taste but the softer the vegetable the more sloppy the final Hash.

  4. The less sloppy the hash the more filling it will be and longer it will take to eat, which is desirable when dieting.

  5. In a very large pot mix the cooked vegetables and stir with a wooden spoon until the potatoes start to create a semi-mashed state.

  6. Do not mash the vegetables to save time just keep stirring and the Hash will start to form. The more you cook the vegetable the faster the hash will result. At the same add the tinned stewed beef and introduce this to the vegetables.

  7. Stir the mixture until the corned beef has melted and mixed with the vegetables.

  8. The final result should be very thick with the root vegetables still, for the most part, in one piece. Do not be tempted to add any water as this will loosen the hash and it will quickly become a soup.

  9. Add the stock cubes and the red wine vinegar to taste. If it looks a little pale use some low calorie gravy browning.

  10. Traditionally this would be served with some short crust pastry but if you are dieting this should be avoided.

  11. A large bowl is very filling and is very health too.

  12. Each bowl gets a small amount of beef and so this doesn't add much to the meals calorific value.

  13. The dish will keep for 3-4 days refridgerated. To reheat use a microwave set on 350-500 Watts for 2:30 mins, stir then for another 2:00 mins.

  14. Do not over cook again as it will become more like soup.
