Leftovers can be challenging especially when it comes to game meat. But if you cook for one or two, leftovers are hard to avoid. Occasionally I can get creative!
Here’s how I recycled grilled duck (original dinner pictured below) that my boyfriend made for me and some friends:
Luckily, I had an extra pheasant breast that we had thawed out. With the pheasant and duck I had just enough meat to cook for the two of us.
I had fried rice on the brain and was determined to make it work. I soaked the previously grilled duck and the pheasant separately with teriyaki and Mojo sauce.
Then I boiled some rice and put it in the fridge to cool. Once the rice was cool I fried it in a pan with 2-3 cap fulls of peanut oil. I added in salt, pepper, garlic powder and soy sauce.
While the rice cooked, I cooked the pheasant until it was white on both sides in another saucepan with butter. Then I added in chopped carrots, green beans and the duck. I let that cook covered for about 10 minutes.
I added two eggs to the fried rice. Lastly, I chopped up an avocado to add on top. Trust me avocado is amazing with any fried rice type dish.
I served my leftover creation with the fried rice on the bottom, the pheasant/duck stir fry and some extra juice above that and a few chunks of avocado to top it off!
My boyfriend went for seconds – always a good sign!
Do you have any tips for spicing up leftovers?
