Let's face it. No one really likes leftovers.
Some people hate it and some people don't even touch leftovers.
There's a bunch of reasons people don't like eating last night's meal again. It's the same taste, it doesn't taste as good reheated and there's something psychological about it that doesn't sit right with our palates.
Cooking for one generally leaves me with a lot of leftover meat be it chicken, pork or steak and eating it straight up day after day can be dreadfully monotonous.
To make my day after meals a little more interesting, I've been following this algorithm at least once a week:
sauté veggies -> add in diced, leftover meat -> add some type of vinegar -> add chopped herbs
Pictured above, I sauteed some asparagus bits in olive oil and about 3/4 of the way through cooking, I threw in the diced, leftover meat (in this case, tritip from Monday night). After heating the small cubes of meat through, I added in a bit of red or white wine vinegar to give it acidity and finished the quick meal with a little chopped parsley.
It's nothing fancy but it does make meals a lot more interesting than just eating plain, reheated roast meat with some type of starch. Don't overcook whichever veggie you use so you can get a bit of crunch!
