2. Leftover Prime Rib Beef Stroganoff

Although beef stroganoff is traditionally made with beef, why not try making it with your leftover prime rib?

Add some herbs and spices, a cup of baby portobello mushrooms, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth to make a gravy. Once gravy has simmered and reduced and is thickening, add the sliced leftover prime rib roast meat.

Remove from the heat and add a dollop of sour cream. Pour the delicious prime rib over a hearty portion of egg noodles and you’ll have a deliciously warming meal you won’t be able to get enough of!
