Leftover Lamb in Simmer Sauce

If you made our Indian Inspired Leg of Lamb recipe and weren't feeding a large crowd, chances are you had leftovers. One of the things Mrs. Awesome loves to do is transform leftovers into a new meal unto themselves. We lived in England for a while and fell in love with their Indian simmer sauces. If you have a Big Lots or World Market or even a good grocery store near you then you have access to these delightful, flavorful sauces too. One of the great things about these simmer sauces is that it creates a healthy meal in just a few minutes, so head down to the store and grab a bottle - my first try would be Big Lots, because the same sauce will be a lot cheaper there than World Market. You could also try the ethnic aisle at your local grocery store. You could make this with any leftover meat. Maybe you made a rotisserie chicken or a pork tenderloin. This will work with any meat as long as it isn't already swimming in a sauce and even then, Mrs. Awesome has been known to rinse the meat off and use it in a new preparation. 

If you've never really eaten Indian food, then follow their handy spiciness guide on the label and choose a spiciness level you're comfortable with. Indian food isn't always hot, but it does always involved a lot of spices. 


1 onion, cut in half and sliced
1 bell pepper, cut in half and slices
1 potato, cut into chunks
Olive oil
Leftover meat, chopped
Simmer sauce (we found ours in the international food section at Big Lots!)
Basmati rice and/or naan


1. Prepare the rice according to the directions on the package. 
2. Saute the vegetables in some olive oil for a few minutes. 
3. Add the meat and simmer sauce. 
4. Heat until all ingredients are hot and then let it go for a few minutes more. 
5. Serve over rice.
