First there was the cold roast beef sandwich, then the hot roast beef sandwich, and now comes the Hot Roast Beef Stew Sandwich – open faced and regular. I dipped out a couple of spoonfuls of the leftover beef stew, cut everything into smaller pieces, and reheated it in the microwave. For the regular, I sliced off a couple pieces of homemade bread and topped each with some of the stew.
My mom would always get 3 meals from a pot roast. First was the roast baked with veggies then gravy made with part of the pan drippings. The next one was hot roast beef sandwiches with mashed potatoes. The third she called hash, but it was the chopped up remaining meat, any remaining broth and veggies and additional potatoes and onions with water added to make a broth. We just ladled the concoction over sliced bread. If the roast was large enough, there might also be a cold roast beef sandwich for lunch. Folks who were depressional era kids knew how to stretch the expensive ingredients.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
