Leftovers notes:

Beef Stag is one of my favorite meals to eat as leftovers as The flavor of the sauce seems to get better overnight. Like Spaghetti Bolognese I tend to cook the pasta on the night that I eat it, but you can reheat it as well of you want..

This meal makes 4 big meals or 6 small ones. The portion size can be up to you with how to distribute it, I tend to eat it for 4 nights and for one lunch (5 meals total).

To reheat the beef Stroganoff I place the amount I want in a bowl and microwave that with a glass of water next to it in 1 minute bursts, stirring each time it finishes. Just be sure to give the microwave a bit of a wipe after as there will be a bit of moisture when you are done and you don’t want to leave it there too long.

I then add my pasta on top, stir in and eat.
