A good and easy way to use leftover roast, always a hit for a light lunch or dinner. Serve with green salad and hot rolls. Note: Other meats can be substituted, but it's the flavor of a beef roast that makes this recipe so good. My mother loves this dish with grated carrot, sometimes. I don't care for it, but you might like to try it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the onions until they're transparent.
  2. Add the shredded beef and cook until the pieces start to turn crispy.
  3. Add the potatoes and stir constantly.
  4. Otherwise, they'll become gummy.
  5. Continue to sauté all ingredients until they are browned and crunchy.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Absolutely wondeful! I loved this, I used left over roast beef, red potatoes, whole roasted garlic cloves, carrots, and rutabegas. Simply delicious! Thank you!!!

This did fry up nicely and allowed for a bit of different flavor from the other meal. Used leftover roast beef and veggies: potatoes, carrots, parsnips. I can see how this could easily be adapted for many different seasonings, meats and vegetables.
