Braised Beef and Sweet Potato Hash Bowl
Tender braised beef on top of a sweet potato onion hash and topped with feta cheese and herbs.
I am such a sucker for a really good, flavor-packed bowl filled with protein and roasted veggies. It is quickly becoming one of my most ordered foods at restaurants. This Slow Roasted Beef and Sweet Potato Hash is comfort food in a bowl!
I won't even divulge how many times I traveled to Utah in 2019 because it is excessive. 🙂 Between moving my daughter several times to attending two weddings to attending a food conference for work, you can just say that I was a frequent visitor to the great state of Utah. So when I go there, I want to find the unique restaurants I can't get in Arizona.
On a recent visit, we headed to Park City for the day. We found a cozy place called Vessel Kitchen, which serves farm fresh food in a casual setting. I was hooked as soon as I walked in the door! I wanted to try every single one of their vegetable dishes because they looked phenomenal. We ordered a bunch of different items and just shared and we loved all of them.
However, there was one standout -- the Hash Hash Bowl. It was braised beef, sweet potato hash, feta cheese, pickled onions, horseradish aioli, and fresh parsley. Oh my goodness, I couldn't get it in my mouth fast enough! The flavors were off the charts.
So I decided it was imperative to re-create it at home so I can eat it anytime I want! But you better believe when we go visit Utah in February to snowboard and see our college girl, we are visiting Park City just to eat those bowls again!
A little side note -- we loved their stainless steel cups so much that we called the restaurant and talked to the manager to find out where they bought them. Lucky for us, they purchased them from Amazon and we bought the pack of 12 since they were so much less expensive that way.. You can find the stainless steel cups HERE.
The key to making this Braised Beef and Sweet Potato Hash is to slow roast the beef roast. I usually pick up a chuck roast from the grocery store, place it in my slow cooker, sprinkle on some seasonings, and let it slowly cook for about 8 hours. When you wake up in the morning, just place the roast in a crockpot, set it, and you are halfway there! If you need a new crockpot -- here's the one I use.
The sweet potato hash can be made by peeling and cutting sweet potatoes into small pieces. You can also buy them pre-cut at the grocery store in the produce section. Then dice up a sweet onion into small pieces and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and salt. It's that simple! Bake at 425 degrees for about 25-35 minutes. You want the sweet potatoes to be soft and completely cooked through!
When we visited Vessel Kitchen, they drizzled on a zesty horseradish aioli. You can either make a homemade horseradish aioli or pick up a creamy horseradish sauce at the grocery store. A little goes a long way but horseradish is known to be a perfect accompaniment to beef. If you aren't a fan of horseradish, you don't even have to use it!
Once the beef is fully cooked and tender, shred into pieces and check for seasonings. Place the sweet potato hash in a bowl. Top with the shredded braised beef. Sprinkle feta cheese on the top. Drizzle with a touch of horseradish aioli and garnish with fresh parsley. It is such a comforting meal, perfect for these cold January nights.
I love this so much! I live in Park City and LOVE the Hash Hash Bowl at Vessel. I literally pulled up Pinterest in hopes of finding a similar recipe and came across this. I can't wait to try it tomorrow! Thank you!!
I made this tonight and WOW! It was as amazing as it looks! Super simple. I used my Instant Pot to cut time and pressure cooked the meat for an hour and it came out perfect and super tender!
Yummmmm!!! This is a bowl of comfort food right here. I am amazed at how good this recipe was WOW!
Okay, this is DELICIOUS!!! And perfect for us since we have 1 vegetarian in the family who loved it even without the meat! Made a garlic aioli sauce with mayo since my kids don’t love horseradish and it was so yummy all together!!!! Mmmmmmmm!!!

I made this tonight. I made my roast in the instant pot (wasn't as tender as I'd hoped). I also added sauteed kale like another reviewer. I don't like horseradish so I put a small amount of worchestershire sauce on mine. It was delicious.
We do something similar with the meats.
I cut into the roast (I use both beef or venison) in several places and put the horseradish (and sometimes some sriracha sauce) into the cuts. Then I slow roast the meat in the oven at 220F all day.
Even the little kids love it!
Looking forward to trying this with the sweet potato hash!!!!!
We tried this tonight, and it was delicious! We added sautéed kale to the bowls for a complete meal-in-one. (Omitted horseradish for my plain Jane kids.) We did add the cup of beef broth to the crock pot, and it was nice to have some au jus to top the bowls. Thanks for a great “make it again” meal!
I am coming to AZ soon and wondered if you had any new restaurants to add to the list you made a few years ago?
This looks amazing and I can't wait to try it but I do have one question. I don't do a lot of recipes in a slow cooker (I use an Instant Pot a lot) however I like my beef ragu in the slow cooker so I can see why this would be preferable here. I am just curious, don't you need some type of liquid in with the beef? Do you really just put the meat with salt and pepper on it's own?
