Mmm, prime rib. Rare. Juicy. Fatty. Delicious. Prime has to be THE best holiday meat ever. I grab a couple at every holiday when it’s on sale. I just can’t resist! It’s so special that I can never let any go to waste and there’s usually a ton of leftovers. You can totally eat it reheated as is with some steamed or roasted veggies. Some are even a bit offended if you use such a glorious cut of meat in leftover recipes. But I don’t care, I do what I want. Here are five great recipes for leftover prime rib.

Leftover Prime Rib: Paleo Beef Pot Pie


Pot pie is one of the stars in the food group: comfort food and I have sure missed it after cleaning up my diet. So you can imagine how excited I was to find that Primally Inspired had put together a paleo version that’s pretty darn tasty! Totally grain-free and the crust is actually pretty flaky and awesome.

Leftover Prime Rib Recipes: Beef Sweet Potato Hash


Hash is another great option. It’s easy and always delicious. This recipe from Fast Paleo uses sweet potatoes.I know these little orange root vegetables are supposed to be magical, but I can’t stand the little nasties so I use regular potatoes or just toss in a bunch of mixed veggies instead. Just cube up the leftover prime rib and use in place of ground beef. Toss an over easy egg on top and you can’t beat it!


This one is simply genius, who the heck would have ever thought to turn leftover prime rib into carne asada? Jillee over at One Good Thing By Jillee did and I’m super grateful! She even includes a pretty great recipe for pico de gallo. Just change out the tortillas for an option that works for you and you’re all set.


Oh yeah, baby. My mom used to make beef stroganoff when I was a kid and it was awesome. This is another dish I’ve missed since I’ve cleaned up my diet and kicked grains and dairy. The Paleo Mama figured it out, she uses coconut cream in place of sour cream and it works pretty well. Definitely, a must try.


Last, but certainly not least, my go to…Shepard’s Pie! This is one dish I make quite often. This is another great dish that’s often skipped because of the white potato action and again, I do what I want and I eat dem potatoes. But many sub them out for sweet potatoes or cauliflower mash. Allison over at Frisky Lemon decided to go with sweet potato mash.

If none of these sound good, there’s also a bunch more leftover prime rib recipes and ideas in this Chowhound thread. Check it out and if you have any other ideas please share them in the comments. I’m always looking for new leftover hacks!
