Pulled pork is always a family favorite meal in my house. We make it often and we make it a number of different ways. But no matter how many different ways we do prepare it, we tend to have leftovers waiting to be used up.
I love creating new ways to use up leftovers and this recipe is no different. My husband is a huge fan of corned beef hash, so this recipe for pulled pork hash is for him. It’s got lots of deliciousness in it and is super hearty.
What is hash?
A very popular dish here in the US is corned beef hash. But what is hash? Hash is a dish that includes chopped up meat, potatoes and onions fried in a cast iron skillet. The name comes from the French word, hacher, that means “to chop.”
Hash is a great way to use up leftovers, whether it is corned beef or pulled pork. Salty corned beef hash is more common, of course, but the same concept is used for this pulled pork hash – except it’s been kicked up a few notches. You can heat the meat up gently or get the meat nice and crispy.
Pulled pork breakfast?
Never heard of enjoying pulled pork for breakfast? Well, maybe you’re a fan of breakfast for dinner? And honestly, who says eggs can only be enjoyed in the morning? Traditionally, hash has no eggs in it. But, I don’t like plain hash.
I like to add more to mix. So this pulled pork hash also includes tomatoes, spinach, garlic and cilantro. It is topped with eggs and finished with fresh avocado. You do not have to include the eggs if you don’t want to, so feel free to omit them if you want in this recipe.
