I recently came across Monday Pie (a pie you make after your Sunday roast) when searching for ideas to use up left over roast beef. I have come up with my own version which is very simple to make and to avoid raw potato slices I par-boil them as they never really seem to want to cook otherwise! I happened to have mushrooms that needed using up so those went in too but I think this is a recipe you can play around with to suit you!
The top rump of beef I used was delicious and silky and came from J L Butchers of West Byfleet who source all their meat locally. They aim to mature their beef for a minimum of 28 days and have had over 40 years experience.
There were 4 clean plates after this meal which really is what you want! So why don’t you try it after your next Sunday roast?
As this dish uses up leftovers I am entering it into the No Waste Food Challenge run by Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary and hosted by Fiona of London Unattached. I am also entering it into Shop Local which is also run by Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary. A new challenge to me is Extra Veg which I’m linking to as there a four different vegetables in this dish, it’s run by Helen of Fuss Free Flavours and Michelle over at Utterly Scrummy who is hosting this month. Finally I am entering Credit Crunch Munch which I run with Helen and is being hosted by Angela of My Golden Pear.
