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

Sounds similar to something my mom used to make. She called it goulash. She used macaroni instead of rice.

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
