I love a good roast beef and so does my family. I usually use a Crockpot and love the results! But after that main meal is over, are you like me and wondering what meal I can make from the leftover beef roast? Here are my favorite leftover ideas for roast beef.
Burritos with roast beef and cheese!
Take some leftover roast beef and cut it into small pieces. Add onion and sprinkle cheese and roll them up. Put in baking dish @ 350 degrees for at least 20-25 minutes, long enough for the roast beef to get warmed all the way through and the cheese to melt. Top with sour cream and chives or parsley. We also like salsa on ours. Fast leftover idea!
Pizza with roast beef and BB-Q sauce!
This is my favorite way of using roast beef leftovers! Make your crust ( I use Jiffy pizza crust mix or use any pizza crust you like.) Instead of using tomato sauce, grab a bottle of BB-Q sauce and spread a little sauce on the pizza crust. Cut leftover roast beef in small pieces and spread on the pizza crust. Add your favorite toppings, we use onion, olives and cheese and bake! This leftover idea has great flavor!
Roast beef Salad spread for sandwiches and crackers!
Think of tuna salad, that’s where we are headed with this roast beef leftover idea! Grind or cut roast beef leftovers. Simply add onions, pickles and mayo like you would if you were making tuna salad. I like to let my roast beef salad chill all the way through. Serve as sandwiches or as a spread for crackers!
Roast Beef Hash!
This leftover idea is so versatile, once you get the idea, the sky is the limit! I put a little water in a big skillet and cut up an onion and sometimes peppers in it. I also cut up small chunks of potato ( if you have boiled potatoes already on hand..use them!) and put a lid on this for about 10-15 minutes. Then, grab any leftover veggie or open a can of peas, carrots, green beans, etc. Add your veggies to the already cooking hash. Add cut up pieces of the roast beef leftovers. Put lid back on and make sure everything gets cooked through. Sometimes I put cheese over the top. Sometimes I put salsa. You can see that this leftover roast beef dish can use up a lot of other leftovers as well.
Stretch your food dollars by being able to stretch your leftovers into making more meals for you and your family. I hope you like the roast beef leftover ideas. Now, go make the most of your roast!
