Prime Rib with Sweet Potato Hash

When writing a blog, I learned recently how important SEO is.  That is "search engine optimization". In a nutshell, watch what choice of words you put in the title or repeat in the body of the post.  Mostly, it can work in favor of how many hits you get.  However, I experienced a flurry of activity (hits) when my blog was definitely confused with a site that has (rhymes with corn and starts with P) no interest in food, travel or recipes, if you will.  The title of my blog post just happened to be the title of this persons blog.  Oops!  So, with this "hash" title, who knows what kind of hits it will bring!!

I had a bit of prime rib left over from Christmas dinner.  Steak, lamp or pork could also be used.  Once again, my kitchen is like a "box of chocolates"  You don't really know what you'll get!  This was pretty good though, especially if you love sweet potatoes.

Prime Rib and Sweet Potato Hash

2-3 cups of cooked, cubed prime rib

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

1-2 Tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup of spinach

a handful of chopped fresh parsley

water or broth (if needed)

salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet or pot, on medium heat,  start to cook the potatoes in a bit of oil, stirring as you go for about 10-12 minutes.  Add the onions and cook until they are soft.  Then add the prime rib or any cooked meat.  Add a bit (maybe 1/3 cup) water or broth, spinach and parsley.  Simmer  uncovered for another 5 minutes or until the potatoes are done, adding extra liquid, if necessary.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This goes together very quickly, one of those mid-week meals.  Hearty, yet quick!

  1. That story about your blog title is hilarious. The Internet sometimes brings all kinds of strange things with it. At least you're getting extra traffic ;)
