Serves 2A CookTale

What was leftover from Thursday’s great Porterhouse was what some consider the finest part of the steak, the fillet. It weighed under 8 ounces, just enough to add to an assembly of sauteed vegetables into what is for some unknown reason called Hash.
Most often, be it beef, lamb, or chicken, leftovers turned into the next evening’s Hash is a dinner we look forward to, as we did last evening. As a side dish Cathie had a Flying Saucer Patty Pan Squash, slow roasted in a 450 degree, oven until almost melted. With each bite it melted in her mouth.


8 Ounces of leftover Porterhouse (or other cuts)
1 Red Bell Pepper (cut to a 3/4″ dice)
1 Large Red Onion (cut to a 3/4″ dice)
6 Large White Mushrooms (quartered)
3 Large Turnips (cut to a 3/4″ dice)
1 Russet Potato (cut to a 3/4″ dice) (optional)
2 Ounces of Veal Demi Glace (dissolved in 1/3 cup of water)
2 Garlic Cloves (thinly sliced)
1/2 tsp of Red Pepper Flakes (or to taste)
Kosher Salt & Black Pepper
1 TB of EVOO + 1 TB of Butter (for the pan, more as required)


1. Prepare the first 6 ingredients as suggested. Place each in individual bowls.

2. Heat a small sauce pan with 1/3 cup of Water. When it begins to boil lower the heat to a simmer & add the Demi Glace. Whisk until dissolved to a rich stock & set aside.

3. Heat a large saute pan, add the EVOO & Butter (adding more if required). Saute the vegetables one at a time, as each is cooked, add to a large bowl. Do not cook the Porterhouse, but add it to the bowl.

4. Replace the contents of the bowl to the saute pan, add the enriched stock & gently toss it together. Sprinkle on the chopped Parsley.

5. Ready to plate.
