Leftovers...As In Food

Danulai posted a recipe on her blog today for a pot roast and then mentioned that her husband didn't like leftovers so she was taking care of that. I'm in the same boat but found a recipe for leftover pot roast that I've tried and it's great. Hope you like it.

1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
1 T olive oil
8-10 oz. leftover roast beef or steak
2 cups beef stock (or 1 can beef broth)
1 cup roasted tomatoes (or 1 can diced tomatoes)
1/2 T dried oregano
1/2 T dried basil
1 cup mushrooms, cut in large chunks
1 T chopped fresh basil (or frozen chopped basil, see below)

Cut onion and green pepper into 3/4inch pieces, and roast beef and mushrooms into 1 1/2 inch pieces. In heavy dutch oven type pot, saute onions in olive oil for 3 minutes, add green pepper and saute 3 minutes more. Add beef, stock, tomatoes, oregano, basil, and mushrooms, reduce heat to very low, and simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper if desired. Add fresh basil when stew has cook to desired consistency and cook 5-10 minutes more. Serve hot.
