Leftover meat recipes

Lesso rifatto

Leftover meat recipes help you to save money and protect the environment. And when the food is prepared with love and care it tastes terrific.

This leftover meat recipe was inspired by Elizabeth David’s book on Italian Food  from 1954. And it is still perfect with all kinds of leftover meat from a Sunday roast or grilled steaks. The taste is a lot more interesting and appetizing than it sounds. And it does not look like leftovers at all.

Cold leftover meat – preferably beef or lamb
3 onions
Olive oil
Juice from ½ lemon
Fresh parsley
Salt and pepper

Cut the meat in very thin slices like the ones you would use for a wok stir-fry.
Peel and slice the onion and garlic.
Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onion and garlic rings until they become soft and glass like.
Add a little water if necessary to prevent the onions from burning.
Turn up the heat and give the meat a quick fry.
Add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.
Mix the leftover meat with parsley and fresh boiled pasta.

    This looks delicious. I’m definitely going to give it a try.
    Mette, I’m resuming my weekly food post and turning it into a Tuesday link party “Tasty Tuesdays,” starting this Tuesday 7/2. It’s anything to do with food – photo of a meal you enjoyed, something you prepared, etc. The link will go up at 7 p.m. EST on Monday. Hope to see you then!

    Great idea not letting the meat go to waste. A little onion and garlic can rescue a whole lot of meals – and this one looks pretty darned good.
