steak potato pepper hash


Leftovers in the form of grilled steak and roasted new potatoes are repurposed for a Monday afternoon family meal, maybe an even better one than  the original one on Saturday night? I think using leftovers can be fun as you peruse the fridge or pantry, like a treasure hunt to find and use up more ingredients as creative additions to your dish.  I had peppers, a ripe avocado, fresh herbs and a bowl of ripe tomatoes on my counter to choose from and of course I chose all of them to go with my steak potato hash. I forgot to sprinkle my herbs on my hash in my first photo so I had to sprinkle and reshoot, as the first photos looked slightly naked without  herbs.

Ingredients for Steak Potato Pepper Hash

Makes enough for 3-4 people

1 yellow onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, deseeded and minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup cubed leftover grilled steak
1 & 1/2 cup cubed leftover roast new potatoes
4 eggs
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 
2 tablespoons finely chopped mint, cilantro and sweet basil
Avocado slices
Lime wedges
Tomato slices

Sauté the yellow onion in olive oil in a large skillet for 5-7 minutes, until translucent.
Add the red pepper, cook and stir for several minutes, then add the jalapeño.  Stir and cook for 5-7 minutes. Add the potatoes.  Cook the potatoes until heated throughout, then stir in the steak.  Continue cooking until steak is hot, then make 4 little nests in the potato mixture and add the eggs.  Cover the skillet, add salt and pepper and cook on medium low heat until egg yolks are cooked (3-5 minutes).  I like my yolks slightly runny.
Serve in bowls with the avocado, lime wedges, tomatoes and sprinkle of fresh herbs.

Pear Jam with Saffron Infused Honey and Cardamom

The summer after high school I worked sorting Bartlett pears at the Scotts Valley Fruit Exchange in Lake County California.  I thought I would never touch or eat another pear again in my life. But, here I am years years later making pear jam in my kitchen with pears, honey and saffron grown in Lake County.  A few weeks ago My husband and I went to visit friends in Kelseyville at their finca, they generously supplied me with the pears from their orchard-Finca Castelero- for my jam.  I will never forget getting up early in the morning and riding my bike across the valley from my cousin's house to work a long hot day sorting pears.  I remember thinking whoever came up with the idea of creating a cooperative to sort, pack and send pears from family farms, including my cousin's family farm on what is now called Hendricks road, to markets all over the country really had a good idea!  I never looked at pears in the grocery store the sam…

French strawberry cream cake

Gracie, my 10 year old granddaughter  and I have been wanting to make a strawberry cake with whipped cream for such a long time, we made it happen this week.  I found what I think is a do-able recipe for a French style cake with strawberries and a cream filling to make at home with basic baking ingredients including fresh strawberries which are still in season.  We baked a butter cake for the base, then we cleaned, trimmed and sliced the strawberries together. We used a springform pan for the cake; the cake was trimmed and put back into the pan with a parchment collar to support the berries and cream topping.  Then we whipped up a cream cheese, sugar and heavy cream mixture that we piped around and into the strawberries that we layered around the sides and into the center of the cake.  We put aside a few sliced strawberries to decorate the top before serving.  The cake has to be refrigerated over night for the cream filling to firm up so it can be sliced cleanly.  We both enjoyed ou…
