Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in a large pan of salted water until tender, drain, then allow to steam dry for about 3 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, melt half the butter in a large non-stick frying pan, then throw in the cabbage and onion and fry for 2 mins. Add the stock and cook for 5 mins more until the veg is starting to soften. Stir in the ham and potatoes and push down in the pan to flatten slightly. Cook for 8 mins until the base is golden and crisp.
  3. Heat the grill. Dot the remaining butter on top of the hash, then flash under the grill until golden and crisp. Serve with baked beans and brown sauce or ketchup, if you like.

I cannot get enough of this recipe!! I use smoked bacon instead of ham hock and henderson's relish instead of veg stock (what can i say i am a Yorkshire lass!)
So easy, so quick and always super tasty!! :D

Nice and tasty. Seasoned with Worcester sauce and topped with an egg per an earlier comment and it made a satisfying supper. If you've got cooked ham hock around this is a good way of using it up. If I was planning on a hash I'd probably go for corned beef or even bacon for more flavour but this is worhtvdoing if you have the ingredients

Very tasty, although adjusted the recipe slightly. For two people I used 500g potato, half a savoy cabbage, one whole onion, 100g ham hock, 20g butter and 100ml veg stock from one cube. Could perhaps have done with some black pepper, hence the 4 stars rather than the 5. Will be making again as it will keep in the fridge for a great healthy, filling meal after the gym!

A regular week night meal, lovely with a fried egg on top and a splash of Worcester sauce added with the ham and potatoes. I sub the potato usually for swede and even sometimes beetroot for a low carb option and use about 100g swede/ potato to 200g savoy to feed one person.

Sad waste of delicious ham hock (cooked).

Is it a cooked ham hough you're supposed to be using? It doesn't seem to be long enough cooking time for raw ham and I'm not sure if a raw hough would even shred properly.

I used a whole savoy cabbage and home made sausage instead of the ham and it was an easy and devine dish!
