What to do with left-over cooked meat?

Just looking for ideas as to what to do with the left-over sunday roast at the beginning of the week...

I would normally do a cold meat sandwich if I have left over roast beef or pork with mustard / chutney etc., or maybe do a shepherd's pie by putting the meat in the magimix and making a thick gravy etc... Anybody has any other suggestions? I sometimes lack of ideas when I only have a small piece of meat left that wouldnt really feed the 2 of us on its own...  yikes

My friend's pirogies are lovely! (recipe in thread above)
Am not really great with using leftovers creatively myself...

I make fried rice and stir frys out it, sometimes taco salad type stuff. omletts, quiches (great for using up some veggies that are nearing their end too), chillies (even with a little bit of meat bulking it up with the beans and chickpeas the meat gives it a full body type of flavor) . and then there are also the old stand bys of soup and stews.


hope that helps smile

We sometimes mix up roasted meat with remaining roasted vegetable in a food processor and use as a ravioli or canneloni filling.

Twist on Stroganoff - bulk it up with plenty of mushrooms, onions, bell peppers
I'm going to make Susanne's friend's pirogies, can't stop thinking about them!

Re: What to do with left-over cooked meat?

Using a filler, such as rice, stretches leftover cooked meat (pork, beef or lamb).  Here's a quick recipe that also uses up any "dying" veg you might have languishing in your refrigerator. 

Bring 1 cup of lightly salted water to a rolling boil.  Add cup of basmati rice, cover, reduce heat to very low and cook for 20 minutes.  While that's on the go, fry up chopped onion/green onion, peppers (red, orange for colour), some garlic in olive oil.  Add the meat and warm through. We like our food a little on the spicy side, so we often mix in a teaspoon of Oelek (sp?).  This is a Dutch spice made from chilies.  Jerk seasoning would also work well (see Jamie's Flavour Shaker recipe).  Finally, stir in the cooked rice.  Add salt and pepper to taste and presto, you're done.

Hot roast beef sandwich, also a good way to use up leftover bread and grazy.  Sometimes i grill up some onions and mushrooms and throw those on top.  It's basic, but it's always a fav at my house.

Loads of great ideas.... thanks guys..... didnt think about pasta fillings or in pieces in a quiche... DOH! (like Homer would say!) - definitely will try a few of your suggestions... I just can't bear throwing food away, even small left-overs....  hmm

I would cook up a delicious curry from scratch and throw the cooked meat in right at the end to warm through.  thumbsup  big_smile  tongue

How about a casserole? ...hmm...though it's approaching Summer over there now isn't it? What about a pie filling?
