I had to laugh when I saw the phrase "Иди на хрен!", because of the use of "идти", implying that hell is a close-by place that we don't need a vehicle to get to.

One of interesting forms is “хреновина”. It's both a vulgar naming of an abstract thing and a dish.

Что это за хреновина? — What the hell is that?

Мы заготовили десять банок хреновины. [I don't really know how to translate that precisely]

Hrenovina is a mix of tomatoes with horseradish and garlic. It's quite a spicy thing. It goes well with a bread and soup. And it's a good seasoning for vareniky.

Here is a photo of this:

There is also the word “хрень”. It may only be used to refer to something, not to describe the dish.

My favorite is "xrenovi" which as an adjective means "crappy, of poor quality."

Another form is "НЕ хрена ему знать об бизнесе" (не хрена instead нечего). And it would not me, if I don't say about locative case although it very rare e.g. "поросенок, жареный в хренУ и майонезе".

I haven't heard the phrase "в хренУ" ever. Must be local.

It's a funny thing, but "Хрен получишь" и "Ни хрена не дам" the same. ;)
