For this leftover roast beef pot pie, we use leftover prime rib and phyllo dough to make a juicy, tasty family meal, in the form of a warm and savory pot pie.
Like most households at holiday time, ours is very busy. Between kids coming home from college and family visiting from other states, there is always a lot going on, especially in the kitchen.
To say there was no shortage of food would be a bit of an understatement. When there is this much food in our household, there are often leftovers.
What is this?
These were the circumstance that we found ourselves facing, following our big Prime Rib dinner from Christmas day.
How could I use both of these tasty foods together? It didn’t take long to come up with a solution.
I found the perfect use for any leftover roast beef.
Christmas is a special time for many families. For us, our oldest was home from his freshman year of college, and we were all together once again for a few days.
Our guys love prime rib, and although it’s not something we make often, this seemed like an appropriate occasion.
What’s in it
- Phyllo dough
- Leftover prime rib – this also makes for an easy leftover steak recipe too!
- Butter and Olive Oil
- Red Wine
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Dijon Mustard
- Bay Leaves
Per the popular demand of our troop of boys, our (Almost) World Famous Mac ‘n Cheese was also on the menu.
May I just say that both featured entrées came out quite well and perhaps due to the quantity of food on our table, there were plenty of leftovers.
That’s how we came up with this leftover roast beef recipe!
It turns out, phyllo and prime rib go very well together. Let’s be honest though, how can anything not go well with a mouthwatering prime rib – let alone sheets of buttery and flaky phyllo dough?
Together, with this Leftover Roast Beef Pot Pie, the two came together beautifully.
It wasn’t just the leftover prime rib we used to make this Leftover Roast Beef Pot Pie. The carrots and celery that we roasted with the original entrée went into the mirepoix.
Similarly, the potatoes that roasted with the leftover beef were also added to the mix.
With a little more seasoning and some time on the stove followed by another trip to the oven, this leftover roast beef recipe proved to be a great use of leftovers.
It seemed to me that the guys loved this leftover creation just as much as the original dish, giving us good reason to call this meal a true double hitter. -Dan
