Monday Pie

Leftovers, sunday roast beef, no food waste, thrifty, quick, easy

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.

Leftovers, sunday roast beef, no food waste, thrifty, quick, easy

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.

    Nice recipe! I have a chunk of leftover roast beef I have no clue of what to do with it :) My English friend told me to look for Monday pie, and here I am!

    Will try to do it, but probably will need a bit of tweaking for local taste (no baked beans available, I’m afraid)

      Great, hope you enjoy it:-)

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, yes roasts are great for leftover meal ideas:-)

    There is something about adding a tin of beans. I have a Shepherd’s/Cottage Pie recipe and add beans to it and it extends it and adds a lovely sweetness to the dish. My boys always loved it when they were at home, clean plates is another aspect of ‘no waste’

    1. Camilla

      I recently saw beans added to a Shepherds Pie and thought that sounded likea really tasty idea so will try that too:-

  17. Heather Haigh

    ooh, I do like the sound and look of this. Love ‘free food’ as we call leftover meals.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, yes it’s good not to waste any food:-)
