Last night I made a bone in roast that left us with lots of leftover meat. It was a prime candidate for leftover upgrade night!
Everyone loved the leftovers more than the initial meal so I’m sharing the recipe!
Here is how I did it…
In morning before work, I took the bone from last night’s dinner and put it in a crock pot with potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic and onion. I then added salt, pepper, paprika, tumeric and Italian herbs (about half a tsp each) and filled the pot with water. I set the pot to Low and left for work.
When we got home the house smells incredible!!
I then turned the broth into a cream sauce, added in the veggies and leftover meat and we had a fresh meal using last night’s dinner! Here is how to make the cream sauce
How I completed the leftover upgrade:
I tossed the meat into the cream sauce to heat it up (still on low/med heat). I then plated the veggies next to the meat and spooned over the sauce.
It was DELICIOUS … all the plates where completely cleaned and we are officially out of leftovers 🙂
