Roast Beef and Potato Pepper Fry...!

Bonjour!

Thought I'd take a trip down the 'foodie' route again with an Anglo-Indian favourite ... Pepper Fry!  I remember various forms of mince, chicken and beef pepper fry from my childhood days - if we were feeling under the weather or full of cold etc a plate of pepper fry and rice would sort us out!  My mum, nana and grandpa were all a dab hand at 'throwing' it together using leftover or fresh meat - let's hope I can continue with tradition ...!

I used leftover roast beef and potatoes - enough for two servings here ...


Prepare the following ... 1 large onion, a couple cloves chopped garlic, chopped ginger to taste (I used 1 large tsp of 'Lazy Ginger' on this occasion), 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp pepper (or to taste) - I used garlic grain pepper cos I love it! (You could also add a chopped chilli into the mix if you wanted to pep it up a bit!)


Fry the onion, garlic, ginger and turmeric in a little oil for a few minutes to soften... (the method is similar to my lamb fry -  here) ...


Add the beef, roast potatoes and pepper and fry for a further 5ish minutes ...

Add hot water from the kettle to just about cover the medley (I also chucked in some chopped coriander too as I'm obsessed with the stuff! ), cover and bring to the boil ...

Simmer for 25 minutes or so until the meat is thoroughly heated and you're left with a pepper fry (think I'll add more water next time as I like loads of gravy!) ...

Serve with rice and yogurt if you like and maybe a bit of bombay mix on the side?

You can't beat a good old Pepper Fry!  It's simple but tasty and a really quick and easy way to use up leftovers!

What's your favourite way to use up roast beef?

  2. That's definitely a new one on me! But I think my Grumps would love it. I'm not a big potato fan myself.

    I don't do beef much (have never roasted beef in my life) but I do a mean roast chicken or so I'm led to believe. With the leftovers, I tend to shred the chicken and put it in a big soup made from any veggies I find. The boys just lap it up so I'm happy as it means they get their meat and veg without any fuss!
