Yesterday I spent washing down the walls and baseboards and cabinets in my kitchen and had no desire to cook. I defrosted instead!!
Sunday for dinner I had made Roast Beef Au Jus. Recipe posted on 5/23/10, Roast Beef Au Jus and on 10/11/10 Roast Beef on Swiss, There was a pint of thinly sliced lean and tender beef and meat juices that I julienned and added to the defrosted onion soup.
What a meal! It was even better than I had thought it might be. In the future I will use any leftover cooked steak or roast by slicing it ultra thin and freezing it for later use in this wonderful onion soup.
Yield 4 servings. NOTE: These are challenging times for a lot of us and it is wise to not waste under any circumstances. Using your freezer to save and use your good ingredients is truly a wise and useful habit to cultivate. My Grandma Neukan set a wonderful example for me. I am so glad she did!!
