The word, hash, does not inspire me. It makes me wonder why I chose to make this recipe from Anne Burrell. I decided to look up the definition and see is there is a reason for my negativity to this word. Just look at this.
A dish of chopped meat, potatoes, and sometimes vegetables, usually browned.
A jumble; a hodgepodge.
To chop into pieces; mince.
To make a mess of; mangle.
Perhaps the definition explains my reaction. A jumble, hodgepodge, mess......That is what it is though. I cut up a bit of this and a bit of that and ended up with a delicious mess, hash.
