Moose’s Beef Brisket Hash

Serves 6.

For brisket
1 (3 pound) beef brisket
1 whole onion
1 whole leek
5 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon chile flakes
1/2 tablespoon black peppercorns, bruised
10 cups low-sodium beef bouillon or stock

For vegetables
2 onions, chopped or julienned
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 large or 8 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch dice

To finish
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
3 cups reserved braising liquid from brisket
Salt and pepper

To cook brisket: Trim excess fat from meat. Put brisket in a stockpot with onion, leek and seasonings and cover with stock. Cover pot and cook at a constant simmer, skimming any foam that rises to surface, for about 2 hours or until fork tender.

Remove meat from liquid and allow to cool. Strain braising liquid, remove fat that rises to the top and set liquid aside. Cut the meat into 1/4-inch dice, trimming off fat, and set aside.

To cook vegetables: Cook onions in olive oil over low heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Reserve. Cover potatoes with cold, salted water and cook over medium heat until water just comes to boil. After water boils, strain potatoes and spread in a single layer to dry completely, then cool.

To cook hash: Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add potatoes and cook on medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until browned and slightly crisp. Lower heat to medium, add 3 cups diced brisket and heat through, about 2 minutes. Mix in reserved sautéed onions and chopped parsley.

In a saucepan on medium high heat, reduce 3 cups of reserved braising liquid to about 1 1/2 cups until it is slightly thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hash in a bowl and top with braising liquid and, if desired, poached eggs.
