Leftover Love

With all that beef last week there was bound to be a leftover or two lurking in the refrigerator. I was given a stipend to create a few beef meals, and in true Anne fashion, I extended that stipend far beyond the intended meals.

Some of the leftovers were just a re-playing of the meal it had already been; we had fajitas twice and extra focaccia sandwiches. I made a soup from one of the leftover cuts and this fried rice from the chili-rubbed roast. The rice was leftover from the chili and the carrots and sno peas left from the Very Veggie Egg Rolls. It made a perfect lunch.

2 cups thinly sliced beef strips
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 cup matchstick carrots
2 cups sno peas
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 small clove garlic - minced
4 cups cooked white rice

Heat a heavy pan on high and add oils. As soon as they start to shimmer, add beef, carrots, sno peas and rice. Stir together quickly. Add garlic and soy sauce and stir to distribute soy throughout rice. Continue stirring until heated through.

What a great recipe. I think that I'm going to try it with some left over lamb.
