Natural Roast Beef with Vegetable Hash

It is customary in Britain for families to gather on Sundays for a big midday feast called the Sunday roast. Traditionally, a large roast (usually beef) is served accompanied by various side dishes of vegetables - carrots, parsnips, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, peas, and the like.

Any leftovers - which there typically are - often get turned into “bubble and squeak,” a crusty hash eaten later in the week. This recipe is based on that dish. Substitute other cooked or leftover vegetables for the ones listed below, if you like.

Serves 4


  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups cubed cooked potatoes
  • 2 cups quartered cooked Brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cooked carrots
  • 1 cup cooked shelled peas
  • 14-oz Applegate Natural Roast Beef (cut into 1"-wide strips)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, chopped

(Warning: You may feel a little more British with each time you enjoy this dish, but it will not improve that bad British accent you try when telling certain jokes.)
