So, I made this great dinner last night, and the question is what does one do with leftover prime rib? Well, sandwiches are always good, but the first question I had to ask myself is what do I have in the house? Certainly, there is the beef, and I have mushrooms. Sounds good. And, I also have some onion, and there is already garlic and pepper on the prime rib…Hmmm…Wait a minute! Wait a minute! I also have Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese! I love it when things come together!

Well, I created this concoction before, and I have to say that is really pretty darned good and it is easy to make!

Leftover prime rib
1/2 # crimini mushrooms
1/2 of an onion
8 oz. of grated cheddar cheese

Start by cutting up the leftover slices of prime rib into 1/2″ chunks.

Coarsely chop up the mushrooms and the onions. Place 2 TBS of butter into a large skillet and add the onion.

Onions and butter are ready to cook

Heat this up and when the onions start to get translucent, add the mushrooms. When the mushrooms start to cook down and their juices come out into the pan, add the beef.

Meat, mushrooms and onions...yummy!

Cover the pan, and turn down the heat, and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Then remove the cover and stir. Let this sit covered for another 5 minutes. Stir again, and then add the cheddar cheese. Stir until the cheese melts

Cheese is added and dinner is ready!

and serve! Not very pretty, but it sure tastes good!

Tonight I will be serving this with some fresh steamed green beans, and what leftover Petite Sirah we had from last night! Try a good warm crusty bread with this. La Brea Bakery makes a really good Tuscan Bread, and this is perfect to go with this dish!

Another way to do this is to cut the meat in thin strips, and cook the same and then serve it on a really good sourdough roll with a really good Stout beer!
