Pot roast paella tonight

I had leftovers from a pot roast I made the other night. Since I wanted to use it before the magic 7 days (I took the Serv-Safe class last year, so I'm expected to be sanitary) I decided to use it in a paella. I did the following:

Chop up about 1/4 cup of red bell pepper, a celery stalk, about half of an onion and a clove of garlic. Also, cut the remaining roast (about a pound and a half) into bite-size chunks.

Heat up my paella pan (cast iron for use with an electric range) and then add a couple tablespoons of olive oil.

Throw the chopped vegetables into the pan and let them soften and infuse the oil with flavor. I also added about a teaspoon of smoked paprika and 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper and a teaspoon of kosher salt.

After the vegetables were getting soft, and threatening to burn, add the meat. Let the meat warm up and spread its flavors into the oil

Add 2 cups of basmati brown rice (I didn't have any calasparra or bomba and really wish I did). Stir the rice to coat with oil and to roast it slightly. Since I wasn't using the normal rice, I wasn't sure how long to cook the rice; it probably could have been better.

I added 4 cups of beef broth and the leftover roast vegetables (about two pounds of potato, carrot and onion) and the juices from the leftover container.

Bring it to a boil and stir it for the last time.

Since it was brown rice and the paella pan doesn't have a lid, it took about an hour to finish. When the beef broth was mostly absorbed or reduced, I added about a cup of Pinot Gris. After that cooked down, I needed to add more warm water a couple more times before the rice was done. When the rice looked done I let it cook down until almost all the liquid was absorbed or evaporated.

It tasted great, maybe better than the original roast, at least to me. The texture would have been better with the correct rice. I probably could have turned the heat up because I didn't get any of that great crust, either, although that may have been due to the rice, too.

Hey Sawx04, thought you might like to know if you replace the lamb for beef we call that cottage pie

Useless information in abundance,

Thanks Julie, that looks like something I could get even my picky eater to try!

Tonight we're having a recipe from my Paula Deen cookbook, meat loaf. I'll make mashed potatoes/gravy, mac & cheese (for the picky one) and probably green beans or something.
Here's the recipe-
Old Fashioned Meat Loaf
1 pound ground beef
6 oz can tomato paste
1/2 cup chopped vidalia onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1. Preheat oven to 375*F. In a large bowl, combine the groud beef, tomato paste, onion, green pepper, oats, egg, salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into a loaf and place it in a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Slather the glaze on top of the meat loaf and bake for 1 hour or until the meat loaf is firm and cooked all the way through.

Yum, I love a good old fashioned meatloaf. I like to make a double recipe, then we have meatloaf sandwiches for lunch a few days.

Cut potatoes, carrots, and onions. Layer them on the bottom of the Crock Pot. Rinse brisket and place on top of veggies. Add equal parts of beef stock and water so that it just covers the meat. Cook on LOW for eight hours. Remove veggies and brisket. Cover with foil to keep warm. Add cabbage (cut into quarters or smaller) and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes. Serve with Gulden's mustard.


Mmmmm! Yummy!
I make corned beef a lot (it's a fam fav.) Never thought to put in beef stock, can't wait to try this, thanks Nikki!

This is a family favorite of ours, now I'm in the mood for it! We use Kosciusko mustard on ours and it's soooo good! Has replaced the Gulden's for corned beef, baked ham, etc! It's also spicy brown mustard but for some reason, just tastes so much better on the meat, and esp the potatoes!!

lol TRUST ME, I totally get that with the traditions. I have so many myself with certain foods and condiments I don't even eat them at restaurants bc I can't "dip" them in what I want. But the Koskiusko is so so so good on corned beef. And it's only like $1.40 a bottle, so you could always try it for real cheap to see if you like it I'm still a Gulden's girl on my sandwiches though - of course mixed with Hellman's....

Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

Try this recipe for the pretzel breadsticks, it is the best! I use the same soup recipe as you, and make these breadsticks and everyone loves it. Just shape the dough into sticks instead of rolls.

NFL playoffs can mean only one thing....Pan Seared Scallops with Pea Risotto!



Sorry no recipe...been making this for years and don't use a recipe!

2009 Rombauer Chardonnay is a superstar with this dish....tropical fruit flavors blend with toasty oak notes. Peach, pear and a touch of pineapple integrate with creamy vanilla...pairs well with Scallops.

Go Patriots!!!!
