Glad to have found this recipe, I didn't know what to do with the leftover pot roast as it just wasn't enough for another family meal. With this recipe I was able to stretch it for all of us. I did as another reviewer and added some carrots and potatoes to the pot to further stretch this meal. Between this recipe and the review that I read....I became inspired and my family became full. Thanks...This sure beats the standard leftovers sandwich. ~Doozie~

Thanks! I did a veg bin clean out at the same time and have red cabbage, celery and carrots in the stew.

This is a fantastic way to use up leftover beef. I added leftover corn, some carrots & barley. GREAT!
