Pot roast is a meal that usually yields a lot of left overs. I am always looking for new and unique ways to use the extra roast. I will share with you a few of my favorites.

Pot Roast Recipes

Pot Roast Enchiladas

I love making this recipe. It’s one that you can easily modify to suit your taste.

2 – 2 1/2 cups shredded pot roast
1 medium onion diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1 can enchilada sauce
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup canned black beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes (drained)
6 – 8 flour or corn tortillas (depends on how much filling you use)
2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese

Saute diced onion and green pepper in olive oil until tender. Add shredded pot roast, black beans, tomatoes and 1/2 of the enchilada sauce. Fill each tortilla with beef mixture, wrap and place seam down in 9 x 13 baking dish. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over top and sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.

BBQ Beef on a Bun

This simple and delicious recipe comes from my friend Wendy over at Around My Family Table.

2 – 2 1/2 cups shredded pot roast
1/2 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 – 1/2 cup reserved beef liquid or water
4 buns (Wendy recommends onion buns)

In a large skillet add shredded beef and reserved liquid. Heat over medium-high heat. Add BBQ sauce, just enough to coat everything nicely. Once everything is heated up, put BBQ on buns.

Shepherds Pie

This is one of my all time favorite comfort foods.

1 large onion, diced
2 tablespoons butter
2 -3 cups shredded pot roast
2 cups beef gravy (leftover, canned or prepared from a mix)
1 bag peas and carrots, cooked
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups left over mashed potatoes or prepared instant potatoes
1 egg

Saute onion in butter until tender. Add the shredded beef, gravy, peas and carrots. Heat through and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a casserole dish. Add beaten egg into the potatoes, and spoon over the meat and vegetable mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, until bubbly.
