Beef Stir Fry (Using Leftover Beef Roast)

This easy stir fry recipe uses leftover beef roast as the main ingredient. Fill it up with whatever veggies you have on hand, then top it over rice or noodles for a fabulous dinner. I love mine over jasmine or basmati rice, my daughter loves hers over noodles.

I love stir fries. They make me happy. Everyone in my household is a fan of them so that’s a win-win situation here. Even Miss Picky Mini-Me eats stir fry. So I make them as often as possible.

What I love about them is their versatility. You can use just about anything in them. You can whip them up from scratch. Or you can use leftover roast, leftover steak, leftover chicken, leftover pork or even do a veggie stir fry. The possibilities are endless.

If you’re digging this dish you need to hop over to Try Anything Once for the recipe. But before you go let me tell you a little about my friend Dionne.

Dionne is an amazing person, and a dear friend of mine. She is holding a Hunger Strike this week to raise awareness for No More Hungry Nights. It’s her way of shedding some light on food insecurities. For the Hunger Strike Dionne is only eating what kids eat for breakfast and lunch on the school lunch program. I commend her for doing this. I’m sure it’s not an easy thing to do. Dionne is so passionate about what she believes in. Show your support by cheering her on and learning more about her cause, No More Hungry Nights.

I encourage everyone to learn more by heading over to Dionne’s site. While you’re there check out my recipe for this stir fry. Poke about, cheer her on and get involved. You can donate money, or goods. You can also buy merchandise to help support the cause. Whether you can only help a little, or whether you can help a lot, every little bit helps.

My guest post touches more on the subject of being hungry. I share my own personal story with my family’s struggles over the years. There have been times where we’ve really hit rock bottom and needed help ourselves. Not easy to talk about but so important to share with people. I think the greatest gift we can give people going through hard times is letting them know they are not alone.

A huge thanks to Dionne for allowing me the pleasure of guest posting for her today. It’s been an absolute pleasure.

    Well, toot away, Kim!! All of these look mighty good. I love that bowl! I saw a bowl like that with holes for the chopsticks a while back and swore to get one, but forgot about it until seeing your post.

      Ha, thanks Brandie. I got that bowl in St Jacobs, I buy one piece of pottery every year we visit. It’s such a cool tradition. You must go get one. I wish I had bought an entire set. It’s a cool bowl.

      Hey, are you doing Mixed this year?

    Kim, thank you so very much for the shout out and for the guest post! I hope you know how much I appreciate your help and your friendship. I’m craving stir fry in a big way. A nice hot bowl of rice and some stir fry would hit the spot! And forget leftovers, I would make a roast just for this.

    I love taking a leftover and making it totally new like this. This stir fry looks delectable!

    Back away Beaulieu, THAT piece is mine!

    This is a great idea! I always have leftover meat and end up throwing it away!

      You must never throw away the meat. Ha.

      My son moved out last fall so we’ve found we have lots of leftovers since he went off on his own. I’m always left with way too much food.

    I love that dish – all glossy and delicious, Stir fries are a favourite here when I don’t know what to cook and they always go down well.

    I love stir fries. I haven’t made one forever. And pot roast. We have never used one of those as the meat. I think my husband will do a little jig if I tell him about this recipe. Of course I will. One I can enjoy the dish and two because I want to see him dance!

      You gotta make one. We probably do at least one a week. And roasts we always have some left cuz my son moved out. So it’s quick to make since the meat is already cooked. Just brown and bam, you’re good to go. Easy peasy for busy weeknights.

    My mom would have LOVED this stir fry, and I KNOW I will, too <3

      Yeppers, we never waste food here. I buy really good quality beef. I tend to buy tenderloin and cut them up myself so we use every last piece of it.

      It’s good stuff. We eat stir fry all the time.
