1 cup beef broth or 1 boullion cube in 1 cup boiling water
2 cups grated raw potato
1 medium onion, grated
2½ cups diced cooked beef
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons bacon fat
Use 1 cup broth made from bones left from beef roast or substitute bouillion. Combine broth, potato, onion, beef and salt, and put into hot fat in a heavy skillet. Cover and simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until potato and onion are well cooked and hash is slightly browned on under side. Add more water if hash becomes dry. Uncover skillet and place in a moderate oven. (350° F.) 15 to 20 minutes longer. Remove from oven and fold hash over omelet-fashion. Place on hot platter, using a wide spatula or turner. 5 servings.
