  1. 1

    Chop the leftover beef into 1 inch cubes. Chop onions, peppers, mushrooms and whatever other vegetables you may have to hand. Sauté the onions in oil in a sauce pan and add the beef and vegetables. Add stock, salt and pepper and herbs, basil, bay leaf and oregano are good pairings for this stew.

  2. 2

    Place the beef in an ovenproof pot with garlic, olive oil, a little water and herbs. Turn the oven to a low heat (200 degree Fahrenheit max) and roast for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and put the beef on a slice of granary bread, or French stick. Top with sweet red peppers and cover with another slice of bread. Add mustard or pickles as desired.

  3. 3

    Cut the beef into strips and marinade with lemon juice and chilli for 20 minutes in the refrigerator. Grill for a couple of minutes and place inside tortilla wraps along with grated cheese, salsa and guacamole.

  4. 4

    Mix onion, carrot, peas, beef stock and thyme in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once the vegetables are tender add the beef and add a little cornflour to thicken the sauce. Once you have a thick sauce pour it into an ovenproof dish and cover in mashed potato. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown. You can also vary this recipe by sprinkling with grated Cheddar or Gruyere cheese.

  5. 5

    Sauté chilli, garlic, curry paste, ginger, lemon grass and Kaffir lime leaves until the aromas are released. Add the beef and coconut milk, and leave to simmer over a low heat for 45 minutes. Serve this Thai beef curry with aromatic Jasmine rice.
