Need your recipe for using left-over roastgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I cooked a rump roast last night and have quite a bit left-over. I need some ideas on how to use it other that sandwiches for DH lunch and hash. Seems I have quite a few ideas for left-over ham, but not so many for left-over roast. I also have some left over gravy and keep a good pantry, so should have most items. I could go and get fresh items if needed. Thanks.

How about making fajitas, marinade them and enjoy. If you didn't have the tortillas, you could do a beef fajitas pasta toss, Yummy. Polly

As I type, I'm eating delicious chipped beef and gravey over bread for lunch. I think my wife just takes the left over roast and tears it up with a fork, makes gravey with the drippings ( I guess you could use gravey from a jar too) then heats it up and serves over bread.

Beef tips over noodles. If you have lots of eggs make your own noodles. Cream of mushroom soup can be used for the gravy.

I often cut up & use it for stew. Add tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, celery, peas, or whatever you like in stew. Put in a crock pot and let cook for several hours until everything is done. Yum!

Connie, I throw all the good stuff I make with a roast, potatoes, carrots, onions, and the gravy, into a pan and heat it. then, I see what it needs to make it better, more potaotoes, peas, celery, etc and let it simmer for a few hours and serve. Funny, just last week, one of my grown sons was astonished to discover that I made his favorite stew from all the leftovers of the roast beef dinner! I never have any leftovers from the stew. karen

I like to shred the roast, saute it in oil with thin slices of onion (or sliced green onion), chopped jalapenos and sometimes small cubed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, wrap in a hot flour tortilla with your favorite hotsauce, cheese and lettuce. Happy cookin!

In addition to sliced for sandwiches, shred the meat with 2 forks, pour on a favorite barbecue sauce and slow cook it until the sauce is mostly absorbed/evaporated then use it for pulled meat sandwich filling.
Chop meat fairly finely. Add extra seasonings. Roll biscuit dough out about 1/4" thick into a rectangle. Spread meat mix on the dough. Roll up jelly roll style, cut in 1" slices. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake at 400o until the meat is bubbly and the dough is cooked, usually 15-20 min. in my oven. Serve with brown gravy.

Italian beef - slow simmer sliced or shredded beef in a bit of water, onion soup mix, Italian seasoning and hot pickeled pepper rings (with juice). Serve on hard rolls, use juice for dipping.
Beef Manhattan - make a sandwich with beef and 2 slices of bread; cut in half and spread apart. Plop a healthy serving of mashed potatoes in the center; top with brown gravy.
Lazy beef pot pie - cut beef in chunks; heat with brown gravy and toss in any veggies you have leftover such as corn, peas, carrots, etc.. Heat to boiling, then top with homemade or store biscuts; bake in oven at 375 til biscuts are browned.

Slice it really thin, heat, and put blue cheese dressing on it. Delicious and low carb! :)

Meat pie--cube up your roast and leftover potatos, carrots, onions. Put into a pie crust, pour leftover gravy over the top. Put on your top crust, cut a hole to vent, bake and eat. Yummy!! You may want to let it sit for a few minutes before you slice it.

My mother used to take our leftover roast and put it through the meat grinder, then add pickles, boiled eggs, chopped onion, and mayo/mustard. She always called it "chicken salad", and I was probably 20 years old before I realized that she was probably the only person I knew who used beef in chicken salad!! Also works great for leftover holiday turkey!
If you run it through the meat grinder and then freeze it in ziploc bags, you can have a quick lunch or dinner, as it thaws faster than a solid chunk of meat, and it is already cooked!

My husband loves "leftover" curry.
Take the beef cut up into small cubes, onions, any spare cooked veggies and a little gravy. Add curry paste ( home made curry roux) and simmer till smooth and well blended. Add raisins, small pieces of apple,nuts ( for crunch)and my husband always loves a little can of pineapple but I hate that)
Serve hot over rice.

Chinese stir-fry beef over Basmati rice! Delicious!!

Lots of yummy receipes I need to try, I see. I guess I'll add mine anyway. I like to make homemade egg noodles (or buy frozen ones) for beef and noodles. Cut the beef into little pieces, and cook with either broth left over from the roast, or add beef broth, then cook the noodles with the beef and serve over mashed potatoes. I also like beef and dumplings. Any dumpling receipe will do. :-)

I thought BBQ Pizza sounded disgusting until I tried it. Use your favorite BBQ sauce, I make my own, throw in small pieces of roast spread over the crust and top with cheese, we like a mozzarella and cheddar combo.

In a large skillet put some oil. Then dice up roast,potatoes and carrots that were cooked with the roast. Dice up a medium onion. Stir it often to keep from sticking. Serve with a salad and you have a meal. I call this roast beef hash.
