Get Organized!

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather your ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Grate your potatoes and soak in cold water.
Dice your onion and red pepper to about 1 centimeter in size.
Mince your garlic finely with a chef’s knife, or alternatively a rasp.

Get Cooking!

Preheat your pan over medium-low heat. Add your butter and once it’s melted, add your onion and peppers. Cook until onions become slightly translucent.
Drain your potatoes, then add to the pan. Add your canola oil and stir occasionally, allowing some slight browning to happen.
Once they begin to brown, add your spices and continue to cook until the potatoes have reached your desired doneness. Hash should have some crunchy bits throughout but not be mashed!
