What to do with left over beef bourguignon sauce?

I made a batch of Julia Child's beef bourguignon and have about 2 cups of leftover sauce. Does anyone have suggestions on what I can do with it? Thanks for your help.

  1. How about making a mushroom stroganoff on egg noodles? Or you could create a chicken and tomato dish using that as your flavor base. Or, you could freeze it and use it next time you make a pot roast.

    1. That's a soup base in this household.

      If we have leftovers of any stew type of dish, it gets frozen if there's enough for another full meal. If not, everything gets whizzed in the blender for soup and then frozen - thinned down if need be when it comes to get thawed.

      1. re: Harters

        +1 on the soup base. I add sauces and gravies to soups to add flavor.

      2. I'd reheat and serve as a sauce over an open faced meatloaf sandwich with buttered egg noodles on the side to mop up any leftover sauce.

        1. I recently had some leftover braised short rib sauce, about 3/4 of a cup. So I froze it and will pull it out when I sear up a piece of steak.
