South Carolina Hash?

Alright my fellow SC Roadfooders, does anyone have a good recipe for hash? I grew up on battleship gray/peppery hash in the Pee Dee but I discovered red hash in Orangeburg and Bamberg Counties and I absolutely love it. Are any of you in the know willing to share your secrets with great red hash? For a standard I am thinking about Duke's and B & D BBQ. Thanks for any feedback.

If you have a good "red" sauce recipe that you like you are half way there.  I'm from central SC where mustard sauce rules and I learned to make hash and mustard BBQ sauce from him.  
 
5 lb Boston Butt
1 lb ground beef
2 large onions
Vinegar
BBQ Sauce
Water
 
Cook Boston Butt and onions in pressure cooker.  Let cool.  Grind.  Boil ground beef if Boston butt broth.   Here is where it comes to taste.  I mix my ground Boston but and beef together.  Mix in a quart of sauce, about a cup of vinegar and a little water.  Start tasting and adjust to your liking.

Re:South Carolina Hash? 2010/06/15 15:33:26 (permalink)

2 lbs. chicken breast meat, coarse chopped
2 lbs. pork butt, coarse chopped
1 28 oz can tomatoes or 4-6 fresh chopped and seeded
5 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup rub
3/4 cup Barbecue sauce

In 12 quart stock pot, sauté onions in oil until translucent, add rub and stir until well blended. Add chicken and pork, sauté 5 - 7 minutes on medium heat. Add water to cover (approx. 1/2 gallon), then add tomatoes. Bring to boil, add carrots. Cook until tomatoes start to break up, then add potatoes. Cook until potatoes have broken down. Puree with a stick blender, then add barbecue sauce. Serve hot over rice. I think I got this from Jack W.

As a note: I have used left over chicken and pork many times in this recipe with great success. Crushed tomatoes seem to work best for me. I like to use cattleman's smokey for the sauce. Be sure to adjust it for salt after you puree it.

Captain.... your "hash" sounds interesting but more like Brunswick Stew.   I don't think that Duke's hash has carrots and potatos in it.

"Alright my fellow SC Roadfooders, does anyone have a good recipe for hash?"

Thirty five or so years ago I would have suggested a packaged brownie mix and lightly sauteing in the butter first, but I guess that's not what you're looking for either.

hash recipes are like brunswick stew recipes, no two are alike..
here's some more...


Georgia Bar-BQ Hash  2-3 lbs lean pork roast  2-3 lbs lean beef roast or chuck  1 lb white meat chicken (optional)  1 large onion  1 large can tomatoes (28 ounce)  1 cans white corn  1 can creamed corn  1 cup cider vinegar  2 tablespoons black pepper  1 tablespoon ground red pepper  1/2 table spoon of crushed red pepper  1 tablespoon salt  Cut meat into large chunks. Place in a heavy pot and add water to  barely cover. Simmer more than an hour. When the meat is very  tender, drain and reserve any broth. Grind the meat with a coarse  hand grinder or chop finely. (Using a food processor destroys the  texture.) Grind one large onion. Place onion and the meat back into  the pot and add one large can of tomatoes -juice and all. Add corn,  vinegar and seasonings. Simmer a few minutes. Add the reserved  broth to the meat until it reaches the consistency of stew. Serve  it over white rice or bread with dill pickles on the side as a  condiment.

Re:South Carolina Hash? 2010/06/16 19:33:20 (permalink)
Here's an article I wrote years ago for a website..


This is a dish served mainly in South Carolina and Georgia, although it can be found in North Carolina and other southern states. It is somewhat akin to Brunswick Stew, which is served more often in North Carolina. There is also a legend about making hash only during the full moon...I'll tell you more about that later.  The variations of recipes are about as numerous as the cooks. In other words, travel a hundred miles, and get a hundred different recipes. It's hard to nail down a precise recipe that is used as a standard. For this article, hash is a thin, reddish brown stew that is served over rice or grits. It is sometimes eaten as a sandwich, kind of a South Carolina sloppy joe. It is made of a couple of meats and vegetables, which can include pork, chicken, onions, potatos, tomatos, corn, sometimes carrots, and I saw a Georgia recipe one time that included beef.  The history of hash goes back a long way, and the old timers will tell you it has to be made overnight in a giant black kettle or wash tub.  The basic process in making hash starts with browning the meat and onions and letting them break down some if they aren't already cooked. I would imagine that this dish originated from left over smoked pork and chicken,  so that's what I use to make it.  After the meat is browned, water (and often tomatos) is generally added and the meat stews for over an hour. Diced potatos are added, and it all cooks for another hour or so. Everything should be broken up or "loose". If not, stir, mix, or even blend the combination to a pudding like texture. Some hash's are stringy, but if you use a stick blender, it will be a different texture. The flavor is still good though.  BBQ rubs and sauces have been added. Other spices I've run across in hash recipes include Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, oregano, hot sauce, mustard, vinegar and of course, salt and pepper.  Of course, there are many arguments about who makes "real hash." In some parts of South Carolina they even make a mustard based hash. Here's the recipe I use, and it's closest to the ones I remember having when growning up.  South Carolina BBQ Hash  2 pounds of shredded or chopped pork butt bbq  2 pounds of chicken meat, shredded or chopped, any type  2 pounds of onions  1 28 oz can of tomatos  5 white potatos, peeled and diced into chunks  3 tbsp salt  3 tbsp black pepper, freshly ground  1 tbsp garlic powder  1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce  1/8 cup cider vinegar  Since I use cooked meat, you don't have to brown the meats. In a skillet, cook the onions until just translucent. Add all the other ingrediants, and then cover with water. Simmer for about an hour, or until the potatos start to break up. If it's too chunky or the potatos are tender, use a whisk and stir vigorously, and let it cook a little more. You may have to add more water.  Serve over hot rice. This can be eaten as a side dish or a main course.  Hash is one of those dishes that even better the next day. However, hash is also one of those dishes that will sour in the fridge. Make sure it has cooled down before putting it in the fridge. You can speed up the process by stirring and seperating the hash into small containers.  Oh, and the legend of making hash by the light of the silvery moon...well  many folks in South Carolina don't do much at all unless the moon is full or near it. That includes gathering crops. It's said that if you gather your crops under a full moon, you'll get more. Same with hash...under the full moon, your hash pot may overflow if you're not careful! But cook under a dark moon, and that pot will surely be near empty by the time it's ready.  Hey, don't ask me, ask the bbq gods.

I live in Union SC and the hash we have here is all beef hash. Midway BBQ in Buffalo ships it world wide. We have local people that cooks hash some weekends. All are good but the best we have found is at West Springs Hash House on Hwy 215. But just a few places have it often. If ever up this way stop in and try some.

This seems like a West Virginia Hot Dog Chili recipe to me, especially given the sugar content.

A bit more like a Sloppy Joe than Hot Dog Chili by my taste.  Isn't the consistency of what I remeber from my SC days, but close in taste from my memory, which after 40 years could be scewed.

Ive been to Midway many times and use to live in Union.  Love that Midway hash and finally.. after a lot of trial and error came up with something darn near it. Its a bit of a drive from Charlotte so I had to come up with a recipe for that stuff.  Have a great weekend. PS.. if you can sneak me the recipe to their chicken stew I would be forever in your debt..  lol.

Re:South Carolina Hash? 2012/11/24 19:34:10 (permalink)

Here is a basic one I use. Might want to use this one as a starting point. Tweak it on the hot stuff and salt to your personal taste.
4 lbs of chuck roast. (approx)
2lbs of pork country style ribs cut in to chunks (approx)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1tsp salt
1tbsp fresh ground black pepper
1tbsp crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon Tapatio hot sauce
1/4 cup of vinegar
1 large onion chopped
1 tablespoon Adolf meat tenderizer
2 sticks unsalted butter
Start by tossing the chunks in a crock pot with a little water. Cook on low over night. Remove meat and shred with 2 forks and discard any unrendered fatty tissues etc then toss the meat along with any broth in a heavy larg saucepan or dutch oven... (enough to hold near a gallon of water). add the vinegar, onions, cayenne, black and red pepper, and hot sauce. Add water enough to well cover the mix and simmer (not boil). Now the goal is to simmer this mix for several hours.. at least 4, adding water as needed and stirring from bottom to top. Now add the Adolf and the salt and continue simmering concentrating the broth until the mix has lost most of its water. You will not see anything in the pot recognizable at this point. Onion will be cooked away and the meat will look ..well.. like hash. (hash is not pretty). The last thing you do prior to serving (on big sandwich buns is my prefered way) is you add the 2 sticks of butter and stir well, taste and add salt if you need it.

Smoke BBQ in downtown Charleston has an incredible hash they make that includes beef brisket in the ingredients. They serve it over Geechi Boy Grits. Its amazing!
 
Chef Roland Feldman told me most places use a lot of "Scraps" for hash. He called them the little delicious, flavorful pieces that come off the meats they smoke but can't use in the main product. Like the crispy exteriors and such. They cook it down and then grind it up to make hash.
 
With that being said, the best traditional South Carolina hash I've had comes from either Jackie Hite's or Shealy's, both in Batesburg-Leesville, SC. Below is a recipe that I think will resemble what you are looking for. Cook this BBQ Pork Hash in a Crock Pot.
 
Ingredients
5 lbs Boston butt roast
2 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced 
3 medium onions, peeled and diced
1 stick butter 
5 tbsp white vinegar 
4 tbsp tomato paste 
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
5 tbsp mustard based BBQ sauce (Shealy’s, Duke’s, Bessinger’s will do) 
1 tbsp dry mustard
salt and black pepper to taste
 
Hardware
5 quart crock pot
 
Directions
Rub roast with salt, pepper and dry mustard.
Put roast in crock pot.
Add the diced potatoes and onions.
Fill the pot with chicken stock and cover.
Set the crock pot on high.
Cook for around 6 hours or until meat falling apart.
When meat is falling apart remove the meat from the pot.
Reduce the heat on the crock pot to the lowest setting.
Pull meat apart very well, removing bone and fat and let cool.
Break up the potatoes and onions.
Return the meat, potatoes and onions to the crock pot.
Add the butter.
Cook one hour.
Add rest of seasonings and BBQ sauce.
Serve over grits or white rice.

I've always been under the impression that SC hash is composed of mostly chopped/ground pork gizzards served over rice.   Learned something new today.

I agree with chickenplucker
 
I have no idea who sent the spam flag and honestly....who cares??? I don't...
 
zagut instead of chronically complaining (about nothing) ...  Why don't you do the following ?:
 
1. Tell us about your local independent restaurants
 
2. Do a trip report.
 
3. Attend a meet n greet
 
4. coordinate a meet n greet.
 
Like it or not......THAT'S what roadfood is all about.
