I’ve often wondered how potato hash differs around the country, imagining that the prevailing favorite staples would create new, iconic hashes: Texas – BBQ hash, Maine – lobster hash, Louisiana – crawfish hash. Well, it is true that regions differ, but what’s even more interesting is that potatoes aren’t the only anchor veggie. Say hello to Dirty Rice. I mean low-down-get-on-your-spurs-we’re-going-for-a-ride kind of dirty! This creation is really a combination of rice and picadillo, which comes from Spanish and is the equivalent of hash in English.

One of the things you’ll notice with this rice hash is how easy it is to throw together. Besides the above ingredients, you’ll need rice (I used basmati because it it super simple and fast to make) and Trader Joe’s Chipotle BBQ Flat Iron Steak. The steak is already marinated in a lovely chipotle BBQ sauce and is so tender and tasty, I couldn’t stop eating the hashed morsels of divine goodness.

With the thick BBQ sauce and chili powder, you can understand why they call it Dirty Rice. This is something that works for lunch/dinner/4th meal (I did not say that.) and will alter your perception of what constitutes beef hash!
