    We're having beef stir fry tonight with leftover roast beef, loads of noodles and beansprouts and oyster sauce, tastes almost like chow mein!

    As we've had tonight, slice it and cook it in the gravy - makes it lovely and moist and yummy. We had it with rice and steamed veg, but you can have it with whatever you like. It's really simple and you can freeze it in portions too.

    How about Scottish Roastie? This is layers of beef, sliced onions and sliced potatoes (finishing with potatoes) in an ovenproof dish, you almost cover with stock and oven bake until the potatoes are cooked through and browned. You can do this with lamb too and add herbs, chutney, bits of left over veg etc. to vary it

    My mum used to do leftover beef sliced, with sliced onions (plenty, for good taste), in a gravy mix, with grated cheese on top. sounds yuk,`but tasted good.

    not sure if the cheese is added near the end of the warming up process!

    I made beef curry

    Another good way is to slice the meat into strips and drop it into Yorkshire Pudding batter ... like toad in the hole but with cooked meat left overs instead ... d-lish!!! (works with any leftover roasted meats too )

  • Queenie
    elvis .... dip your brown bread in an egg n milk mixture, fry it in butter .... then, dust with icing sugar and a blob of marmalade

    Marmalade on toast sounds good, with a coffee.
  • Queenie
    Make that a stroooong coffee to counteract the sweetness of the marmalade

    stir fry
    curry
    mix it with a flavoured white sauce, perhaps add fried onions and/or cooked, chopped leftover veggies, then either top with mashed potatoes or grated cheese & breadcrumbs - beef pie
    As above, but made into a pie with pastry

    I'm sure we could make it stretch

    Thanks all, I'll pass the ideas on.
