The long weekend will pack your fridge with tons of leftovers. Steak is one food item that’s hard to preserve simply because the tenderness of the meat will be compromised—it gets tougher through time.
There was a slab of roast beef sitting pretty in the studio fridge for around 3 days (or more) now hahaha, so instead of feeding it to the garbage bin, we whipped up something quite uncanny but surprisingly delicious.
We started shredding the cold roast beef with a fork (adobo flakes style) and fried it to a crisp. For the pasta sauce, we melted some of the roast beef fat for flavor, threw in the gravy, and added a few good ingredients such as butter (count on butter to make everything more delicious), some cream, a dash of liquid seasoning, and a generous grating of Romano cheese. Top it off with some parsley for flavor and color, and there you have it: The Steak Flake Pasta.
Your leftover beef/steak/roast beef won’t wait forever, so show some respect to the meat! Instead of ditching it out, try this pasta recipe instead. The souls of the butchered cows will be rejoicing in animal heaven.
