Times are tough these days. It seems that stretching everything is vital to surviving. If you are like me, you must be buying what's on sale at the grocery store and shopping the neighborhood bulk food store for bigger savings. Trouble with a beef roast is sometimes the roasts are to small to split, yet too much for one meal. Here's an idea for turning that left over roast beef into another fresh meal.
You will need:
Leftover roast beef
1 can Mexican seasoned stewed or diced tomatoes
1 cup water
Yellow rice, White rice, or Noodles
Cut leftover beef into chunks, about one inch. Sprinkle beef with Adobo seasoning to taste. In a two quart pot combine beef, tomatoes, and water. Cook on low until beef falls apart or pulls to shreds. Shred beef in pot and continue to cook while preparing rice or noodles according to package. Serve beef with your choice of noodles or rice, maybe some lettuce and tomato, or tortilla chips.
Things I have added:
Add with tomato step-
Add after shredding beef-
I have found that imagination is the key to stretching meals while making them exciting and new. Trying a new combination of spices and vegetables seems to make any leftover into a whole new taste.
