    Using up leftover beef couldn’t be easier with this great selection of recipes. From curry to casserole, pie to stroganoff and plenty more scrumptious meal ideas, there are loads of tasty ways to use up your leftover beef.

    So, if you have any leftovers left from a recipe you’ve made or Sunday lunch, don’t bin them! Use them up instead and make a whole new dinner for the family, or just a special lunch for yourself.

    Starting off, what is the best cut of beef for a roast dinner? There are so many to choose from and with many people opting to go to the supermarket rather than the butcher these days, it’s not always easy to get crystal clear advice. We suggest going for rib or loin, and always looking for the Quality Standard Mark label to ensure you’re getting the highest quality of meat for your money.

    As well as some classic dinner options like chilli cone carne and shepherd’s pie, we’ve got some more unique options to use up your leftover beef. You can also create some of your favourite mince-based meals and replaced the fine meat with chunky bits of beef – this is delicious with homemade chilli or burgers.

    Once cooked, your leftover beef can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days – or in the freezer for up to 4 months. If you don’t think you’ll use all your beef at once, cut it into strips and put it in the freezer, so you can grab a handful at a time as you go.
