What to do with leftover roast beef
If you are lucky enough to have leftover roast beef (like what happened to me after a sumptuous Father's Day dinner), here's an easy Beef Stew Recipe.
Easy Beef Stew
About 3 cups of leftover roast beef, cubed
1 cup of diced cooked carrots (the ones cooked with the roast beef in the crockpot)
2 cups cubed celery
1 large white onion, diced
3 medium potatoes, cubed
1 cup leftover gravy
2 beef bouillon cubes
2 tablespoons cornstarch miexd with 1/2 cup water
1.In a large wok, saute onions and celery in the oil for 5-7 minutes until they are soft and browned on the edges.
2. Add about 4 cups of water, the beef cubes and bring to a boil.
3.Add the beef cubes and potatoes next. Simmer until the potatoes are almost done. Add the cup of gravy, diced cooked carrots and simmer for a minute or more.
4. Then add the cornstarch slurry to make it the sauce thick. Salt and pepper according to your taste.
