Prime Rib Becomes Bubble n’ Squeak Hash


What to do with leftovers from a delicious two-rib beef roast that had been accompanied by potatoes, brussels sprouts, green beans and leeks?

Well in our house that’s a recipe for bubble n’ squeak with cold meat sliced on top…..except the other night I was inspired to do something a little different.

The and bubble n’ squeak (listen to it while it’s cooking in the pan and you’ll hear where the name comes from) I made as normal – the vegetables mashed up and fried in a non-stick saute pan with the aid of some olive oil and a little knob of butter.

Only this time I fashioned the mashup into a potato-like pancake and cooked it until it started to crisp around the edges. Next I added some freshly steamed spinach (with a little added hot red pepper flakes) to the perimeter of the pan.

The thinly sliced leftover prime rib went in with the spinach and, for full hearty effect, I added two fried eggs on top of the pancake.

A fancy fry up to be honest, but fun and fulfilling at the same time.

    Hey Matthew! I love your site, and I got the cookbook for Christmas! My name’s June, I’m 11 years old, and I like cooking, art, reading, writing, and animals. I made an apple pie yesterday, and I just invented a cool new smoothie called “Lime yellow”. It’s for two people and is:
    Half a pineapple
    Five squeezed limes
    10 ice cubes
    a bit of orange juice
    All blended up! It’s really sour, and kind of bad for your teeth though…

    Lime Yellow sounds an excellent name for a smoothie…my daughter loves chewing on lemons so this might be one for her. Glad you like the book and site.
