If you were feeling contrary this Christmas, and decided to make a big roast beef instead of a traditional turkey, you may have leftovers of a different sort to deal with.
You could just re-heat it and serve it again as you did on the big day, or you could slice it, whip up some horseradish mayonnaise and have sandwiches, but why not make a Coast special? A roast beef and gravy po-boy.
You may be surprised at how good your homemade roast beef po-boy is. It is simple to do.
ROAST BEEF PO-BOY
Leftover roast beef, chopped
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper
3-4 cloves garlic
1-2 cups beef stock
Salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes
Sauté the onions and bell pepper until soft, add the garlic and cook 2 minutes more. Add the beef stock and 1/3 of the leftover beef and simmer until you have a nice stock. Taste and season as necessary. Add the remaining beef and simmer until thick. Toast a po-boy loaf, garnish as you like, but I recommend it be fully dressed, pile on the beef and dig in. Make sure to have plenty of paper towels on hand.
