Leftover Roast Beef Stew

Have you ever cooked a roast and had way to much left over? To me, it is not as good as leftovers as a turkey, chicken or ham are. So here is a recipe that will make your leftover roast beef come to life. The best part is I made with BEER!!


About 3 cups of Leftover Roast Beef cut into chunks and fat removed

1 – 12oz. beer of your choice

1 onion chopped fine

1 green pepper chopped fine

3 cups of Beef stock

1 Tbs. of Dried oragano

1 Tbs. of dried basil

2 cups of mushrooms or more if you like ­čÖé

6-8 red potatoes cut into chunks

1 bunch of chopped fresh basil

3-4 garlic cloves, crushed or minced

1 can of fire roasted tomatoes

1 Tbs. of olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste.


The first thing we did was chop up the beef, and marinated it in the beer overnight.

In a medium to large cooking pot or dutch oven, add the olive oil and when hot add the onions and cook for about 3-4 min and add a little salt and pepper. Then add the garlic and cook for about 1 min. more. Add the green peppers and cook for 3 more min.

You then can put in the mushrooms and cook them down a little here, or not it depends how you like your mushrooms. If you like them bigger and more hearty don’t cook them down. If you like them a little more soft and smaller then cook them down a few minutes.

At this point you want to add the beef broth and tomatoes, juice and all. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pot or dutch oven getting all those cooked-in bits into the liquid.

Now the rest is easy, add everything else except for the fresh basil, including the beef with the beer. Bring to a boil slowly and simmer until the potatoes are softened, about 20-30 min.

After the potatoes are cooked add the fresh basil and simmer for 10-15 min more. Serve right away. This is also a good stew for leftovers. I brought this to work the next day and it was fantastic.

I discovered a version of this stew on Kalyn’s Kitchen, check out her Italian leftover roast beef stew. I made her version step by step and it came out good. This is the modified Beer Drinkers Kitchen version. We hope you like it and let us know if you make it and how it came out.
