Leftover Stew

Cathy Smith


I have been doing this for years and have never had a pot of soup turn out bad. I know this is not really what you'd call a traditional recipe, but it is yummy. My husband isn't a big fan of stew or soup, so I take it to work and the guys gobble it up, even for breakfast. lol. Enjoy!

How to Make Leftover Stew


  1. Instead of leaving those leftovers to go bad in the fridge, start a leftovers bowl in the freezer. Chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, pasta, etc. Even if we have eaten all of a vegetable (such as peas or green beans), I throw the juice in the leftover bowl. Hey, flavor is flavor. I chop up whatever meat I have leftover and throw it in my leftovers bowl. I use a gallon size ice cream bowl with lid.
  2. When my bowl is full, I take it out, run the bowl under hot water to release the contents, pop them in my large crock pot, add about an inch or two of water,and one medium size can of tomato sauce. Turn crock pot on low and cook for 4 or 5 hours. Eventually everything thaws and the melding of flavors is amazing. I stir it occasionally and taste test to see if it needs any spices. That's it! Easy peasy!
