A beefy egg recipe for a hearty weekend brunch

Got leftover beef of any kind? We’re talking brisket, roast, stew, any cut of steak — just as long as it’s meaty, tasty beef. Wait, don’t just eat it straight up out of the fridge. We’re going somewhere with this.

Red flannel hash, contrary to popular opinion, is not a hipster-lumberjack term for something you smoke. Rather, this dish combines beef (traditionally corned), potatoes, eggs and a certain purple veggie that turns everything red. Since you liked our red velvet pancakes so much, we thought we’d turn you on to a savory red brunch dish of a different fabric.
