Steak Potato and Onion Hash

Potato Hash with Steak

I know I'm always on about Marks and Spencer food, but when I'm filling up the fridges at work with all their lovely food, I think to myself, I could make that!

Now, this idea came from their 'Gastropub' range. I added tomatoes to mine, why? because I like them.

Topped with crispy-crunchy potatoes that have underneath soaked up the lovely sauce, the result was one good and tasty meal. So, here's my Marks and Spencer copycat recipe.

How long to cook braising steak

Braining steak has to be cooked slowly and for a long period of time. If you don't the result will be horrid and tough; when cooked properly, it will melt in your mouth.

We love the crispy potatoes in this one-pot recipe.

What to serve with steak and potato hash

To be honest, nothing else is needed, but you could add a side of peas or green beans.

Steak and Potato Hash

Steak and Potato Hash

Casserole beef or braising steak has to be cooked slowly and for a long period of time. If not the result will be horrid and tough; it should melt in your mouth.
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 3 H & 30 MTotal time: 3 H & 45 M


  • 500g casserole steak - or braising steak - cubed
  • a handful of flour
  • 3 medium onions - sliced
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 fat cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of tomato puree (tomato paste in the States)
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic puree (from a tube)
  • 100ml chicken stock
  • 150ml red wine
  • 1 x 400g tin of cherry tomatoes - I used Napolina brand
  • a good pinch of dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons of paprika
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste
For the potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 2 large potatoes - cubed (or enough to cover the top of your casserole dish)
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • a small handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley - chopped


Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F or Gas 5
  1. Heat the oil in an ovenproof casserole and cook the onions slowly over low heat until they are soft and start to colour nicely.
  2. Whiz the celery, carrot and garlic in a food processor, or very finely chop.
  3. Add them to the casserole along with the tomato puree and the garlic puree. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Add a tiny bit of salt and a good amount of black pepper.
  4. Coat the cubes of steak in flour. Heat a glug of oil in a separate pan and seal the steak quickly then remove and add to the casserole.
  5. Drain the tomatoes from their juice - but keep the juice in case you need more liquid during cooking (better than adding water).
  6. Add the tomatoes to the casserole with the red wine and chicken stock, dried parsley and paprika.
  7. Stir everything and bring it to a boil. Pop it into your preheated oven for about 2 hours 45 minutes. Make sure you stir it from time to time.
  8. If you need more liquid you can add the juice from the tomatoes or a little more wine!
  9. You don't want it to be too runny a mixture as remember you're making 'hash'. However, you don't want it to be all dried up either.
  10. Taste and check the seasoning.
Cook the potatoes and finish the dish
  1. Peel and cube some potatoes - enough to cover the top of your casserole.
  2. Parboil them in salted water just for 5 minutes - no more or you'll have mush. Drain and leave in the still-hot pan to dry out a little.
  3. Pour a tablespoon of oil into a bowl along with a teaspoon of paprika and a little black pepper.
  4. Stir, then tip in the potatoes and stir gently to coat them.
  5. Remove the casserole from the oven - have another taste. When you're happy, put the potatoes on top.
  6. Pop it back into the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes, until the potatoes are nicely browned and cooked through.
  7. Sprinkle over the chopped parsley and serve immediately.

  1. Looks fabulous Jan! I do the same thing as you, although I don't have the benefits of working in M&S(??)!! I often go in just to see what's new and I think to myself, I could make that and probably better! Your hash looks fantastically delish!! Congrats on all of your years working there. You DO deserve a medal! xxoo

  2. I love these homey dishes Jan, and of course am a little obsessive about potatoes.

  3. Ooh that looks lush Jan! Perfect meal for my better half too!

  4. Looks amazing! I do love hash, and will need to make this! Thanks, Jan!

  5. I can't tell you how much I want to eat the whole plate of this! Look so delish and hearty - I am book marking this one :)

  6. Love it, looks good, sounds great, a nice stick to the ribs meal.

  7. I never really new what a Hash was but this looks so good. I would probably use left over bef from a joint as I'm not mad about braising beef.
