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.

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.

    I also had lots of clean plates after cooking this but I would, coz I live on my own. It was too much for one though so I threw most of it in the bin after it had been in the fridge for two days. The phone never rings, either. But the meal was nice

    1. Camilla

      Hmm, well next time either make a) a smaller portion or b) make individual portions in those freezer foil trays and freeze for another day for a night off from cooking freeing you up to make a phone call while it’s cooking. Glad you enjoyed it anyway:-)
