Allison's Story

I was trying to figure out what to do with my leftover crockpot beef brisket/eye round last night. I had about 1-1 1/2 lbs left of nice tender "pulled beef" sitting in the wonderful au jus. I looked to see what I had in my pantry and did this. Wow, it really hit the spot.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yum, yum, yum! A crafty - and delicious - way to use up leftovers.

For those who were wondering what else to do with the rest of the beef, I had made French Dip sandwiches with the first half of it the day before. However, like many have mentioned...tacos, taquitos, shredded beef nachos..it's endless. :-)You could definitely freeze the taquitos I'm sure.

Carol and Allison,
I have noticed also that JAP reposts or shows recognition to the same recipe sometimes. The Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies recipe has been featured more than twice. Don't know why they do it; but in the case of this recipe, I didn't get a notice of it the first time so I would have missed it had they NOT repeated it. Guess they choose the ones that go with the season, such as football season, to repost...like Allison suggested. Maybe it's a recipe that so many have tried and loved so they decided to feature it again.
Don't know either...but glad that they do that once-in-a-while.

I agree Allison. This is a wonderful website. I have made lots of new friends here...and LEARNED at lot about recipes and ingredients. My shelves are full of new items that I never knew existed until I got seriously involved in JAP. LOL.

Keep posting those recipes, Ladies....and keep cooking.... 8/29/13

Hey Carol, I'm really not sure why they reposted it :-)...I was so surprised when I started seeing comments on it again, and then figured out they reposted it. I've seen a couple recipes that I know reposted this way, like "chocolate disgust" and others. Maybe they wanted to repost for football season? LOL...a surprise to me. :-)
