    Doh Beef Stew from roast?


    I bought a marked down roast yesterday at the store. I plan on roasting it with veggies tomorrow. I figured that we wouldn't be able to eat all of it, so I'd like to maybe make a beef stew from it.

    Does this sound doable? Obviously I've never made this kind of thing. (My beef stew has always been Dinty Moore, even when growing up) Does any one have any ideas or recipes to use?

    I've never made a roast before ether, so any ideas on how to not mess it up would be welcome.

    Thanks,
    Shannon

    AN easy way to make the roast is in the oven and add a cup of leftover coffee to the pan. Not sure what it does but what a great flavor and moist. For the stew I like cutting the roast up into small bite size pieces, adding potatoes, and a can of mixed vegetables (or frozen) and some tomato sauce, herbs. Add water to keep it in watered in a soup like base. I wish I could be of better help, I don't measure, I just eyeball and add things until it tastes like what I thought it would

    Kim, I don't drink coffee, does it leave a coffee taste? I like the smell of coffee brewing--- but it's not one of the taste that I like.

    No the roast does not taste like coffee. It acts like a tenderizer to the meat.

    You can use a can of cream soup(we like mushroom), a package of onion soup mix(we use WalMart) & cook in a crockpot or oven, covered. We also add a cup of Sherry or Burgandy. For something different we put some sour cream in about 1/2 an hour before we are going to eat. Good luck.

    Those are some great tips. I had never heard of the coffee one. I read in my cookbook earlier that adding beer helps.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any coffee or beer, but I do have the soup, so I will probably try that. Any ideas how long to cook it? It is around 2 1/2lbs.

    My grandma used to make strew out of left over roast all the time!! She would use tha pan dripping and make extra gravy for the stew and cut up whatever meat and veggies we did not eat that night, mix it together and call it stew. Super yummy!
    I ususally cook mine all day in a crock pot, I am not sure how long to cook it in the oven.

    okay, here is where I am at.

    Just got back from the store, got onion, carrots, and potatoes for roast. Also got dry onion soup mix (I know, I know, I should have made my own)

    I've started a loaf of bread in the bread machine (Just got it today, very excited) to be done around dinner time.

    I'm about to start the chopping, but first I am going to check out my cookbooks to see how long I should cook the roast, how much water, etc.

    I'll keep posting as I go (Laptop is in the kitchen, as it is slowly becoming my digital cookbook)

    I always turn my roasts into stew the next day. Everyone looks forward to it. Something about leftover roast made into stew is very homey. Just chop it up, along with leftover veggies (add more carrots, onion, potato, parsnip, whatever you used if needed), add some water and bouillon, taste now and then to check seasoning. If my husband's got a beer in the fridge I will pour a beer in the stew. It adds a nice flavor. I always stir in some floury water at the end to make the stew nice and thick, and I tend to serve it with cornbread.

    Ok, the roast was good, and we had about half left after dinner. I cut it up and put it in a pot with the left over carrots and potatoes. I added a bag of frozen mixed veggies, the rest of the onion soup mix and water. I let it simmer until the new veggies were tender. I added cornstarch to thicken the base. It is now the perfect constancy. I am transferring it to 2 Ziploc bags. We'll eat one tomorrow, and the other will go in the freezer. Thanks for everyone's advice. I love that I've gotten 3 meals out of 1 cooking.

    I cook my roast in the Crockpot with potatoes and carrots. If I'm lucky enough to have left overs I chop up the left over roast and mix a little gravy with it and the potatoes that were left over and fry it up in a skillet making Hash out of it. We love it but rarely have left overs! Oh it's so good!

    I add a can of beer in my crock pot for roast or chicken. It does add a very nice flavor!!

    Skillet Hash
    About 2 cups chopped cooked Beef
    2 cups chopped cooked potatoes
    some chopped onion
    A little snipped Parsley if you'd like
    dash of salt & pepper
    1/4 cup oil or shortening
    2/3 cup gravy or water

    combine beef, potatoes, onion, parsely, salt & pepper. heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Spread meat mixture in skillet.

    Brown hash 10 to 15 minutes, turning frequently with wide spatula. Stir in gravy or water. Reduce heat; cover and cook 10 minutes or until crisp.

    We rarely have left overs but boy we sure love making hash when we do!
