This made a great comfort dinner. I used some leftover prime rib that I had in the freezer and made a homemade mushroom gravy. Served with mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing.

I made using leftover roast beef cut into pieces, and gravy from Sunday dinner. I topped mine with another slice of bread and topped with more gravy for a super sandwich. Super delicious and very much enjoyed later in the week. Cranberry sauce on the side and a small salad to go with it was what we had..

Canned gravy? Sooo much better with the liquid from the roast in a roux! Make a roux from equal parts butter or oil, or both, and flour. Stir flour into the butter/oil and, stirring constantly over medium heat, brown until the color of a walnut. Strain the roast juices into the roux and stir until thickened. You can add salt, pepper, herbs, onions, boullion etc., to season. We always add a couple of tablespoons of our 'secret ingredient', Worchestershire Sauce. You'll NEVER buy a can or jar of gravy again...

This recipe was made for mine and my SO's dinner and most importantly,the " Billboard Tag Game ". The meat that was used was leftovers of roast,veggies,and gravy that I had in the freezer. I did serve it over toast and potatoes.I think this is a very good way to use leftover roast. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Yum! What better way to use leftover beef then this. I had quite a bit of roast leftover and sliced it up to make this. It was so delicious. I made up some mashed potatoes to have on the side and poured some extra gravy over them too. A great comfort food we have here!
