This week I decided to repost a dinner idea that I wrote about months ago.
(originally posted 10/28/2008)
I recently cooked a large roast that turned out a little dry and tough. It was okay, but nobody really wanted it for leftovers. Here’s what I often do in those situations.
Cut the beef into chunks and put it into a food processor. Process until finely chopped. You could try a blender if you don’t have a food processor or just chop it finely by hand. I then use the beef in one of the following ways:
- Add some mayonnaise and make a sandwich spread out of it
- Use it as you would ground beef in casserole recipes
- Use it as the meat in spaghetti sauce
- Make a thin gravy from the leftover broth, add the meat, and serve over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes
The problem of the meat being tough is solved by chopping it up, and the dryness is solved by putting it with something moist. My family enjoys the variety and flavor it adds to these dishes.
How do you use your leftover roast beef?
