Our Top 12 Recipes to Make With Leftover Prime Rib
Prime rib is a gift that keeps on giving — if you're lucky enough to have leftovers. We love to cut it thin, pile it high on a slice of bread, and slide it under the broiler for a hot minute or two. We chop it up and fry it with potatoes and onions for a hearty hash. Or slice it into strips and add it to beef stroganoff. Check out our favorite ways to get a delicious second life from prime rib and roast beef.
Prime Rib Soup
"This rich and satisfying soup is the best I've ever created," says Emily Tisdale. "Hubby is always excited when I make a prime rib because he knows this soup will follow within a day or two. The ribs are sliced from the prime rib before serving and saved just for this recipe. I always buy a prime rib with the bones in because it makes the roast better tasting and the ribs are a bonus not to be missed!"
Leftover Roast Beef Hash
Leftover roast beef or prime rib adds delicious heft to this quick and easy hash recipe with russet potatoes, onions, green bell pepper, and mushrooms. "I never used a recipe before for hash," says lutzflcat, "and I typically don't add either bell peppers or mushrooms, but I must say I liked them in the hash. I added some chopped parsley and a drizzle of leftover gravy. This is not rocket science, folks, just simple, old-fashioned comfort food."
