    Default Gimme your best shot

    I made a vat of beef broth yesterday from some beef shank. The package
    must've been close to 3#. It was about 80% meat.

    When I make the broth into soup, I will never use that much beef in my
    soup (I only make about 1-1/2 quarts at a time).

    What the heck else can I do with all that meat? Boiled beef.

    Hash? Sandwich spread? Freeze it? For some reason, freezing it
    doesn't "sound right" to me.

    I await your counsel.

    BBQ sandwiches or hash would be my first choices.

    I would take the meat and some, not much of the broth and use the
    seasoning in this recipe and
    cook it down to dry and make Mexican shredded beef out of it. You
    can portion it out and freeze it
    for future tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, burritos, etc.etc.etc.


    http://hizzoners.com/recipes/meats/2...-shredded-beef

    You've already got the main cooking portion done, now let the
    seasonings cook into the meat and finish it out.

    Thanks, Nancy, Sitara, and Wayne. I hadn't especially thought of
    shredding it. I know that Somebody will like the idea of barbecued
    beef. Somebody puts barbecue sauce on things I would not subject food
    to.

    Thanks feel free to keep 'em coming.

    I love hash, but 2.4 pounds worth. But some. Then the traditional meat for
    meat filled ravioli is leftover cooked meat, so make some ravioli. Then
    rissoles, perhaps, which a Brit will tell you how.

    Hash sounds good. I would do barbecue sandwiches, sloppy joes, tacos,
    burritoes, or enchiladas. Maybe Italian beef sandwiches. I wonder
    how it would be in a cottage pie.

    Last time I made beef stock, I used the meat to make tacos. ;-)

    Freezing sounds right to me, in packets of a size to pull out and make a
    quick meal. Since much of the flavor has been boiled out, I'd use it in
    things that bring a lot of flavor through additions. Hash, with lots of
    small-diced onion with the potatoes, or chili or beef salad (you know, like
    chcken salad, only beef). Or, mix with a little egg, and your usual
    flavorings for meatloaf, form into patties and have "not leftover" meatloaf
    sandwiches.

    Potted meat!!!

    Of all these canned meat products I bought a while back, the only
    thing I may continue buying/eating is the Armour potted meat.
    Disgusting stuff.

    It's already been suggested. Beef hash with fried potatoes and onions.

    If you have the patience (hopefully that of a saint) and a staff of helpers,
    buy some finely ground corn flour (masa harina) and some dried corn husks.
    Soak the corn husks. Meanwhile, mix the masa with lard and some of the beef
    stock. Shred the beef. Add some chili peppers (I don't remember what chili
    peppers I used). Then roll the beef in the masa dough spread on the soaked
    corn husks. Steam the tamales over a cup of that lovely beef stock.

    I made tamales once. And I'll never do it again.

    They're not that bad but it helps having a team and you can't have
    anything else going on. Someone posted a link to a masa spreader a
    couple years ago and we ordered one. It took awhile to get the hang
    of it but it really speeds up the process.

    Like I said after reading a science fiction novel: "Well, that'll never
    happen." :-) I like tamales. No patience, no ambition, no staff.
    Mexican places within 3 miles of me that do.

    Yer not missing much.

    I useta think mamasitas made tamales short on filling cuz they were
    selling 'em to us gringos and ...what the Hell! It's their duty to
    rip-off the pandejos.

    Well, I made traditional Mexican tamales with my traditional step
    mother-sister-in-law-whatever. She was about a hundred yrs old and so
    traditional she hadda ask her husband permission to pee and the
    tamales were so from-scratch, the only step missing was slaughtering
    the pig. Anyway, I was shocked to discover, as I was helping assemble
    the damn things, she used barely half an ounce of meat, per tamale.
    This for family consumption, only. And the harina mix was fully 50%
    lard. That's a lotta fat! So, corn flour, a crap-load of lard, and
    half a pinky finger of meat steamed in dead plant leaves. Yum.

    Traditional tamales are definitely poh-folk food, in the 3rd degree.
    I havn't wasted my money on one since. If you find a tamale with more
    than an oz of meat, it's a boutique tamale and costs $8!

    I vote for tamales. You can freeze those and they reheat easily.

    Ok! Let's see some Tamale recipes! I've never made them. I have a 2
    quart steamer....I think that's what I need...
