What to do with overcooked tri tip roast

DanInCambridge Feb 11, 2010 12:57 PM

Bought a tri tip roast from TJ's, over cooked it slightly. It wasn't way over cooked, but I don't think it could survive another reheat. Any suggestions on what to do with it? I've got somewhere under a pound left.

Was thinking sliced thin and making sandwiches.

    I like to make a shepherd's pie out of roast. Use it in place of the ground beef, make a sauce or gravy to mix with it, some veggies, some mashed on top. Done.

      Slice against the grain and use for fajitas

      If it's really dry, shred and use for sloppy joes sandwiches

        f you have any beef or veal stock , chill beef in freezer for short time and slice as thin as possible. Throw in some oregano, garlic, onion , thyme etc in stock . Cover beef with stock and cook at low heat and then enjoy.Similar to Chicago beef sandwich

          I'd turn it into a beef stew; precook the veggies, make a gravy then add the roast and simmer

            Empenadas: Use commercial biscuit dough (not flaky style) flatten them out stuff and fold with a little of your favorite sauce inside. Serve with tomato sauce for dipping or salsa.

                Chip it and make SOS.

                Thai beef salad.

                Enchiladas or tamales.

                  slice, top with a little worstershire (sp?) add some yummy blue cheese , arugula, and some slow roasted tomatoes on a nice moist roll.
