How To Upcycle Leftover Pot Roast and Vegetables
Don’t let any food go to waste. That’s why we’re sharing our tips for what to do with your pot roast and vegetable leftovers.
The most natural use for your leftovers is to create a unique and soul-satisfying stew. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Leftover pot roast and vegetables
- Beef or vegetable broth
- 1-2 diced potatoes
- Carrots (fresh or frozen)
- Salt, pepper, minced garlic, thyme, and other desired spices
Start by adding your leftover pot roast and vegetables to a large pot or Dutch oven. Then, add enough beef or vegetable broth to the pot until the roast is just covered. Estimate 1 to 2 cups of broth, but use your judgement. Take this opportunity to add in fresh diced potatoes, carrots, and any herbs and spices that sound delicious. Simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes and enjoy your hearty stew.
Tasty Pot Roast Sammies
No one can turn down a delicious pot roast sandwich. Start by toasting two slices of your favorite sandwich bread. Season with a bit of butter, salt, and pepper. Next, assemble your sandwich by adding cheese, fresh lettuce, and a few spoonfuls of leftover pot roast. Top with your second slice of bread and dig into this warm sammy.
Chop-It-Up Leftover Bowls
For a unique dish, try this leftover bowl idea. Start by preheating your oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then place chopped potatoes and carrots on the sheet. Halve, then slice a large onion and spread it around the sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until everything is cooked to your liking. Once the vegetables are done roasting, combine them with warm pot roast and top with a sprinkle of finely shredded cheese. Et Voilà – you have yourself an easy and flavorful leftover bowl.
