Leftover Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce

  • Food: Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce
  • Ingredients: leftover beef wellington, red wine, shallots, beef stock, butter
  • total time: 10 min

Jill and I got sophisticated this week in honor of the Oscars and made the most delicious meal in the history of our blog: Beef Wellington! That’s right, it’s so fancy I had to capitalize it. For leftovers, I knew I needed to kick it up a notch in order to maintain this snazzy streak we are on. Ergo, I decided to try making a reduction sauce.

Reduction sauces are basically really delicious gravy. My dad always makes them with steak, and he is an amazing cook, so I knew if I was successful I would have something to be proud of. My dad likes to joke about how I don’t like gravy unless you call it a “reduction sauce.” I also don’t like meat loaf unless you call it “meat balls,” or hamburger unless you call it “ground beef,” or yard work unless you call it… nope, there is nothing you can call yard work that will make me like it. Sorry, Dad.

Spoiler alert: The sauce was delicious.

The Most Delicious Chili Dog in the World

  • Food: Chili Dog
  • Ingredients: leftover chili, hot dog, bun
  • Cook time: 45 seconds

One of the best thing about leftover chili is that there are 7.35 million different ways to eat the it. Chili is great on nachos, over rice, and (my personal favorite) on hot dogs! Last night, I used a 7-Eleven hot dog instead of making my own. Because 7-Eleven hot dogs are the most amazing hot dogs I have ever tasted. Seriously. Go get one right now. I’ll wait.

I'm getting pretty talented at these fancy photography shots, eh?

Disco Pockets! A creative way to use leftover beef stew

  • Food: Disco Pockets
  • Ingredients: leftover beef stew, Grands Biscuits, cheddar cheese
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 – 20 minutes

Raise your hand if you remember the Hot Pockets jingle from the mid 90’s… I really hope everyone reading this literally just raised their hand into the air – that is how amazing the Hot Pockets jingle is.  In case you are having a hard time remembering, or you just want a reminder as to the awesomeness of the pocket, check out this wonderful commercial.

 

If I had the ability to predict the future, I would say that some Sunday meal this coming spring will be a homemade Hot Pocket extravaganza.  However, I cannot predict the future, so I will not say that.  What I can say is that Hot Pockets are amazing, especially when they are homemade.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “why do I care about your love (obsession) with Hot Pockets–this post is supposed to be about leftover beef stew!”  Well, dear reader, Kelly and I outdid ourselves with the creative leftovers post this week.  We turned our beef stew into the filling of a homemade Hot Pocket.  It was our lazy version of an attempt to make a beef pot pie!
