Even though many of us groan at the thought of serving leftovers, some leftovers are actually better than the original dish. Cajun Pot Roast Po’Boys definitely fit into this category, and it is worth making a Slow Cooker Cajun Pot Roast Dinner (which is easy and really good on its own) just to have leftovers. The leftover potatoes are also good fried until crisp or can be used in Cajun Potato Soup.
Hopefully this delicious sandwich will remind you of the great food in N’awlins, and will become a favorite way to eat leftover Cajun-style roast beef. Cajun flavors are highly addicting, and you’ll find yourself eating more than you plan to eat, which may be bad for your diet, but very good for your satisfaction and well-being. Roast Beef Po’Boys are available at dozens of restaurants in New Orleans, and they are very good. These Cajun Pot Roast Po’Boys may be even better, and you don’t have to go all the way to Louisiana to enjoy them. It may be a good idea to double the pot roast recipe so that there will be enough to go around.
