Beef Tagine-Style Hash
Mother Nature is just not making up her mind with the weather we have been having! We have had days of below-zero temperatures that we know a meal with a bunch of warming spices will help take the chill off of us. Keep in mind, you do not need the actual Tagine to cook this. (But, boy that would be so cool though!) the spices normally associating with a Tagine are bright, bold, warming and just incredible! This creation brings an awesome change to a typical breakfast food and it was definitely a hit with my husband! He wore it well, HAHAHAHAHA!
This is a two-part recipe that involves my own Tagine-spice blend and also the recipe for the hash.
Konky's Tagine Spice Blend:
3 TB Hungarian Smoked Paprika
1 1/2 TB Coriander (can use dried or fresh)
1 TB Granulated Garlic (Can use powder or fresh)
2 tsp Cayenne
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Ginger (Can use powder or fresh)
2 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Allspice
1/2 tsp Cloves
1/2 tsp Cardamom
Simply mix this all together and store in an air-tight container. If you use fresh ingredients, this needs to be refrigerated. If you use all dried, this can be stored in a cool, dry place.
INGREDIENTS - BEEF TAGINE-STYLE HASH:
8oz Sirloin, small diced 8oz Red Potato, small diced 4oz Red Bell Pepper, small diced 4oz Red Onion, small diced 3 TB Garlic, freshly minced 2 TB Tagine spice blend (to start, adjust afterwards) 2 TB Thyme 2 TB Butter 2 TB Olive Oil Kosher Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
1.) Prep all of your ingredients ahead of time. The key to this dish cooking evenly is making sure your knife cuts are all the same. Dust on the thyme to your prepped ingredients.
1.) On medium-high heat, add your butter, olive oil and garlic. Stir this around so we can avoid burning the garlic. Stir for about 30 seconds or so or just until the garlic starts to show some color.
2.) Add your prepped ingredients to the pan and toss to coat. Stir frequently every few minutes or so. The key is to have that garlic-butter-oil evenly coat your ingredients. After about three minutes, evenly distribute your tagine spice blend. Continue to stir this for another three minutes. Taste test to determine if you want more of the tagine spice added.
3.) After the additional three minutes has gone by, remove from heat. Taste test and determine here if you want or need to add kosher salt or black pepper.
- Serve with poached eggs - For a vegetarian version, use sweet potato instead of sirloin - For a vegan option, omit the butter and sirloin, increase the olive oil and use cooked lentils. You will need to cook them separately and toss in - Turn up the heat and use some of your favorite hot peppers or hot pepper sauce
