Leftover Prime Rib

Leftover Prime Rib

Mmm, prime rib. Rare. Juicy. Fatty. Delicious. leftover-prime-rib

Not to mention expensive and there’s usually a ton of leftovers. You can totally eat it reheated as is with some steamed or roasted veggies. Some are even a bit offended if you use such a glorious cut of meat in leftover recipes. But I don’t care, I do what I want.

Here are some great ways to use up that leftover prime rib.

Paleo Beef Pot Pie

Pot pie is one of the stars in the food group: comfort food and I have sure missed it after cleaning up my diet. So you can imagine how excited I was to find that Primally Inspired had put together a paleo version that’s pretty darn tasty! Totally grain-free and the crust is actually pretty flaky and awesome.

Beef & Sweet Potato Hash

Hash is another great option. It’s easy and always delicious. This recipe from Fast Paleo uses sweet potatoes.I know these little orange root vegetables are supposed to be magical, but I can’t stand the little nasties so I use regular potatoes or just toss in a bunch of mixed veggies instead. Just cube up the leftover prime rib and use in place of ground beef. Toss an over easy egg on top and you can’t beat it!

Leftover Prime Rib Carne Asada

This one is simply genius, who the heck would have ever thought to turn leftover prime rib into carne asada? Jillee over at One Good Thing By Jillee did and I’m super grateful! She even includes a pretty great recipe for pico de gallo.

Paleo Beef Stroganoff

Oh yeah baby. My mom used to make beef stroganoff when I was a kid and it was awesome. This is another dish I’ve missed since I’ve cleaned up my diet and kicked grains and dairy. The Paleo Mama figured it out, she uses coconut cream in place of sour cream and it works pretty well. Definitely a must try.

Paleo Shepard’s Pie

Last, but certainly not least, my go to…Shepard’s Pie! This is one dish I make quite often. This is another great dish that’s often skipped because of the white potato action and again, I do what I want and I eat dem potatoes. But many sub them out for sweet potatoes or cauliflower mash. Allison over at Frisky Lemon decided to go with sweet potato mash.

If none of these sound good, there’s also a bunch more ideas in this Chowhound thread. Check it out and if you have any other ideas please share them in the comments. I’m always looking for new leftover hacks!
