This Month’s Leftover Ideas

Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Your roast beef would be an excellent choice to stir fry into your fried rice dish—season with soy sauce if you prefer. The beauty of fried rice is that anything goes!



Yes, this roast beef is tender enough for a nigiri sushi topping, or maybe hand rolled? Don’t forget to brew some green tea and serve with wasabi horseradish.



Your nibuta slices can be toppings for hors d’oeuvres or canapés if you use your imagination. Add cheese or veggies for color and crunch, and serve on crackers.



What else but for pizza toppings, right? Nibuta already has plenty of flavor—it’s not going to lose out to anything else on your pizza. Create a whole new kind of flavor!
