One of my favorite things to do with leftover meat is to throw it together with some potatoes and seasonings for a breakfast-inspired dinner hash. It works best if you've got leftover potatoes to deal with, but if you don't have any, simply precook a few beforehand, or get a package of precooked diced potatoes. Serve with a fragrant fruit salad and you've got a perfect dinner meal. To get a great recipe — the secret is in the few minutes of broiling at the end — for skillet pork hash,
1 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (16-ounce) package refrigerated cooked, peeled and diced potato
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1. Heat oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat.
2. Cook pork 3 to 4 minutes, until slightly brown. Stir in potatoes, onion, green pepper, garlic, broth, thyme, salt and pepper, cover, lower heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Place skillet under broiler 4 to 5 inches from heat source. Broil until surface of hash is crisp and golden brown, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
