So have some left over beef and thought I knew a jamie recipe to do something with the left overs but now can't find it. So anything you can recommend, something spicy but using a store cupboard.

It's not a 'recipe' as such, but I sometimes use leftover gravy as a base for a curry sauce for leftover roast meat

I have made a Jamie soup with leftover beef: Brown Windsor soup www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/beef-recipes/brown-windsor-soup-with-pearl-barley.

How did you make the crispy shredded beef? I have some leftover beef too.

Stovies! The best thing about having roast beef is making stovies the next day grin

Cottage Pie.

Add to pasta sauce or curry

You don't smoke stovies with cooked roast beef! Only square sausage will do.....

What's a stovie?

Traditional scottish dish made with potatoes, onion and left meat... But theres a national debate what that meat should be... Never heard of leftover roast beef till now though!

Oh yum! That is right up my alley. Thanks HappyGirl, I had no idea of a stovie but I'm eager to make this. It reminds me of corned beef hash in a way. Total comfort food.

The point of stovies is that you get to use up whatever leftovers you have, so if you're lucky enough to have leftover roast, that's fine, and very tasty...

My 'go to' for leftover meat is fajitas - which is probably rather like your shredded beef, popped into tortillas and with added sauce!

Totally Francis... Use butter as the fat though - so much tastier... Mmmm

Just can't imagine with roast beef.. In my family it was always sausages.. Some folk use mince but to me that's just mince and tatties.. Some folk use corned beef but to me that's corned beef hash... Never heard of anyone, in all the 'debates' I've had about how to make them, say they use roast beef....

Ahhh, horses for courses as the saying goes. Corned beef hash, roast beef stovies, sausagey stovies, fajitas etc all sound the bees knees to me. I'll quite merrily shove nearly most things down my gob wink
