Leftover Prime Rib Stir Fry

Monday, December 28, 2020
I know you're saying who has leftover prime rib right? Well, we have so much after the Christmas holiday we love to repurpose it like this recipe in a stir fry.

This stir fry is a wonderful addition to that end piece that may be just a tad overcooked for you!

A whole new meal is created just by adding some of your leftover vegetables or chopping up a few fresh ones you love to create this healthy meal.

While shopping for prime rib I always pick up a bag of mixed julienned vegetables that have shredded cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and snow peas.

I have even used this recipe to make delicious air fried tacos, wraps, there are many ways to serve this filling.

Leftovers can get really boring if you don't come up with some clever ideas, like making my Leftover Prime Rib Pot Pie which is another family favorite!
