Beef Filet Hash

The header is of Madison's three ferrets (Mitchell, Roscoe, Lilly) and this in normal for them.  I don't know how the Lilly is not being mashed.

Bev had bought a whole beef filet and when Rhett and family were her, we had steaks from it.  If you’ve ever bought a whole filet, you know there is a good bit of meat that is not usable for a nicely shaped steak and we decided to turn some of it into breakfast food (surprised you didn’t I) in the form of beef filet hash.  I cut up some of the scraps into chunks and fried them up with some onion, green pepper, green onions, and home fries made from baked potatoes leftover from the steak meal.
I first fried the veggies together and when they were about done, I moved them to one side of the skillet and browned the meat.  The potatoes were seasoned with S&P and Tiger Seasoning and the meat got a sprinkle of Montreal Steak Seasoning.

While this was cooking, I fried up some eggs.  When the meat was mostly brown, I mixed everything together, cooked for a couple more minutes, plated, and topped with a couple of the eggs.

It was delicious way to have steak and eggs for breakfast and all three of us ate a good portion.

I'm now responding to your comments and hoping you will stop back by - photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

    1. Pam - I ferret free house would be my preference as well. I'll probably put up a lake shot when the water comes back up.

  10. I love hash! And it's been awhile since I've made any. I've never bought a whole beef filet. That looks like a good meal Larry. Great photo of the ferets. They're sure a cozy bunch. And spoiled, lots of toys.

    1. Hash is hard to beat, especially with a couple of eggs on top. The critters are incredibly cozy.

    1. Thanks Betsy - I looked on Wunderground webcams and saw that you guys had a little - nothing down here in the valley.

  12. You are right about the little pieces of a filet. The ends can't be turned into steaks but they are prime meat. Great way to use them Larry. Why am I not surprised that you turned them into breakfast hash. BTW I always order corned beef hash for breakfast in restaurants that have it on the menu.

    1. Thanks Penny. I do the same thing when the restaurant makes it's own hash.

  13. Dude, that hash looks heavenly! I just now realized there were three ferrets in that pic and not just two. Comfy together aren't they? Do they ever snap at each other? Our chinchillas do and it is usually at 2 or 3 in the morning. That'll wake you up.

  15. Your breakfasts always sound great but with filet you have taken it over the top.

  16. Bill and I have never tasted 'hash' before, but it is very popular here in SC, especially when the local fire fighters have their semi-annual 'hash' sales. It looks and sounds delicious and of course, I would have to have that dripping egg yolk all over it too!
