Pan-Seared Flatiron Steak with Crispy Hash | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

If you cut me, I’m pretty sure I’d bleed hash. I am hash. Not a day goes by that I don’t saute a crispy pan of something wonderful, whatever is in season and in my fridge, fresh or leftover (preferably both). Hash can be the main event, with meat combined with vegetables, or it can…
