Left Over Pot Roast

A simple option to make use of left overs

I don’t know about you but I hate to waste food. I especially hate to waste a good pot roast. One of my favorite go to options for the end of the pot roast is to turn it into a stew. Since I always have frozen vegetables and cream soup on hand, this is an easy solution. You could always make your own cream soup and use canned vegetables.

This is one of those dishes that makes use of left overs.  The majority of the work has already been done with the cooking of the pot roast.
You could heat this through on the stove top if you like or put it in the slow cooker on low.
I don’t use canned vegetables in this because they would disintegrate in the oven.  You could leave them out until the end and add them to warm through.  Don’t forget to drain them first!
You could serve this with potatoes on the side or over biscuits.

This is a great ‘clean out the fridge’ recipe that you can adjust to suit your taste or make use of what you have on hand.
