One of my favorite tricks is to take a single cut of meat and turn it into a weeks worth of meals. This week at the grocery store beef roasts were on sale. I snagged a 6 pound roast for about $17.00. For dinner tonight we’ll have pot roast (made in the crock pot). But a 6 pound roast for two people means a ton of leftovers. And I plan to get several dinners for two out of these leftovers (and several pot roach sandwiches for lunch!) I’ll post the recipes as I make them this week.
Here’s my plan:
Day 1: Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Day 2: Beef Ragu
Day 3: Shepard’s Pie
Day 4: Stir Fry with Asian Noodles & Slaw
Day 5: Curried Veggies & Beef on Persian Rice
EDIT: My Husband ate all the potroast leftovers- so much for days 2-5 recipes!
