Lower Fat Skillet Hash

I make this once or twice a month and it is one of my daughter's favorites. It is very simple and easy.

  • 1 pound of 93% lean ground beef
  • small bag or half a large bag of pre-diced hash browns (you are certainly welcome to dice your own :P)
  • small bag of frozen peas (heck, go ahead and shell your own after you are done dicing your potatoes.)
  • Worcestershire sauce to taste
  • Seasoning salt to taste

  1. Either take hash browns out to thaw the morning before cooking or defrost them in the microwave.
  2. Brown ground beef and separate with a spatula.
  3. Drain most water or fat. I leave a little in so the potatoes don't stick.
  4. Add potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle the whole pan with seasoning salt.
  6. Cook til potatoes are soft, but still hold their shape.
  7. Add peas.
  8. Pour Worcestershire over the pan to taste, I think I used about a tablespoon, but we like Worcestershire sauce. This sort of deglazes the pan and gets all the brown bits mixed into your meat and potatoes.
  9. Serve immediately.

Side note, if you have a picky foods-can't-touch toddler in the house (like me) you can withhold some of the meat before adding all the extras. Then nuke a small dish of peas and a small dish of potatoes. Voila. No whining. At least not about the food.
