I am always trying to make things that I can freeze, both finished meals as well as ingredients like cooked chicken or roasted vegetables and so on. It is such a time saver when you are in a pinch to get dinner on the table. It can be the difference between having a healthy home-cooked meal and ordering pizza delivery.
I was able to take advantage of my well stocked freezer last night. Steve was going out of town and had to leave for the airport by 5:30, so dinner had to be early (early for us, anyway), so I really wanted something that I could put together quickly. After rummaging around the freezer, I found beef au jus (click on the link for the recipe) some roasted peppers and onions and some hamburger buns. In the refrigerator, I had some provolone cheese slices. So, in no time at all, I had Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches!
- 1 1/2 cups cooked, shredded beef ( if you don’t have any, you can use deli roast beef)
- 1 cup roasted peppers and onions (if you don’t have any, you could use jarred roasted red peppers and omit the onion)
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- 4 hamburger buns, split
- olive oil
