Leftover Pot Roast Ideas

A pot roast isn’t really a specific cut of beef or a certain recipe. Pot roast refers to a method of cooking a roast-sized piece of beef in a way that causes a Maillard reaction that gives browned foods a distinctive flavor you probably recognize. The important thing to remember is that you want to char the outside to get that flavor THEN you can transfer it to your slow cooker or Instant Pot to finish cooking.

Once you have extra pot roast from the night before, you can try a few of these leftover pot roast ideas to use it up.

What you need for these leftover pot roast ideas:

Pot Roast – I highly recommend you begin with a Certified Angus Beef Brand pot roast. The key to tender and tasty roast beef is plenty of marbling. That’s why I look for the Certified Angus Beef brand.

Meat Shredding Claws – If you’re planning on making sloppy joes or shredded beef of any type, meat shredding claws are an absolute must-have. They make the process so much easier.

Indoor Grill Pan – If you love having grilled sandwiches, you will not believe the difference in flavor when you grill them on a grill pan.
