1 Roast Beef ~ 3 Meals

Seriously.  My mouth is watering just typing this post. 
I love cooking Roast Beef.
I give my meat a little spice rub and garlic acupuncture then throw it in the oven for a couple of hours. 
The house smells divine!
Meal 1 ~ Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Carrots.

Meal 2 ~ Beef Dip with Ceasar Salad
Using the leftover roast beef and pan drippings.
The day after we had our roast I used the pan drippings that I saved to make a gravy.
Now, I am NOT a gravy expert.  If there is another chef in the room then they make the gravy.  But in a pinch I can come up with something pretty edible ~ especially with this {must have} gravy shaker.  You just put flower and water in, shake it and add it to your gravy to thicken it up real nice.  I had to add a little bit more powdered beef stock too.

 Don’t forget the mushrooms.  With red onions and a dash of Oyster Sauce.
I cut real thin slices off of our roast beef {or tried to at least}.

Then poured gravy into bowls for dipping.

And served a fabulous leftover meal. 
This is the kids version ~ the boys ate the croutons and left the salad {of course}.

Meal 3 ~ Shepherds Pie
I fried up some ground beef, diced up some celery and onions {you could add frozen peas too} and added leftover carrots.

Poured the rest of the gravy over the whole shebang…

And layered leftover mashed potatoes on top. 
This one went into the freezer for a busy day.
Love it right? 
Anytime you can stretch one meal into three ~ it’s a good day!
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope that you’re having a fabulous weekend!

    YUM! I love a great meal that keeps on giving and giving.

    If you ever see it in a grocery store, there’s a little bottle of yum called “gravy master” and it has a great recipe on it and it gives instant color and flavor to gravy. I use it when I’m too lazy to do it right like you just showed us!
