Left Over Madness

Doug and I have been trying to eliminate waste... OK, I have been trying to eliminate waste and cook more efficiently. I have found some create ideas about how to use left overs creatively. One website is Love Food hate waste, and the other is Recipe Goldmine.

My favorite comes from Recipe Goldmine, in the form of Roast Beef recipes. When we bought a side of beef last year, we had no idea just how much Roast we would be getting.

Roast Beef
— Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Dip into beaten egg, then into dry bread crumbs. Fry the slices in oil or butter until hot and golden.
— Put into a crock pot with some canned green chiles, a little cumin, a little garlic, and a little water. Cook until the beef is easily shredded, then use as a taco or burrito filling.
— Top meat slices with cooked onions and peppers and provolone cheese; serve on hoagie rolls.

Happy Cooking!
