The recipe I offer today, I am not sure it originated in the Ozarks.
My mother called it “Texas Hash” and that is what I am going to go with.
She lived in Houston for a number of years so I suppose the recipe could have actually come from Texas, but I am not going to promise!
We were poor growing up in the Ozarks. My Mother was a single mom raising 2 kids on her own, and often times food had to be stretched as much as possible.
This recipe is simple, fast and really inexpensive to make, but I still love today, when I can pretty much fix anything I want; that is what this article is about though, The simple things in life that take you back to an Ozark Memory of:
TEXAS HASH (Ozark Style)
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Cup Onions-Chopped
1 Cup Green Pepper-Chopped
2 Cans Diced Tomatoes w/ Juice
1 Tbs. Chili Powder
½ Tsp. Cumin
1 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
¾ Cup Uncooked Rice (Extra Long Grain)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Brown Ground Beef in Skillet.
Add Onions and Peppers and Cook under Med-Low Heat until Veggies are Tender.
Drain All Grease. Add Tomatoes and Seasonings and Bring to a boil, You will a little bit more salt than you normally would season it with because the rice is going to absorb a lot of it.
After it is boiling, add Rice, stir and cover and simmer slowly for 35 minutes.
Makes 4-6 Servings
