  • roast leftover
  • ½ cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • ½ to ¾ cup salad dressing


  • Grind or finely mince 2 cups of leftover roast and place into mixing bowl. Also, grind or finely mince the sweet pickles now if using as a substitute.
  • Add salad dressing, sweet pickle relish, and walnuts.
  • Mix to combine. Additional mayonnaise and relish can be added 1 tablespoon at a time if you want a wetter spread.


Salad Dressing – I prefer mine a little on the sweeter side so I use, Miracle Whip. You can swap this out with mayonnaise. Anytime I use mayonnaise I always add a bit more relish or some sweet pickle juice.
Relish – You can also substitute this with a sweet pickle or two. Dice those up and grind them with the beef. You’ll also want to add about a teaspoon of sweet pickle juice when adding the other ingredients.
Tips For Success
• Using a food processor or grinder are the simplest ways to grind your leftover roast.
• If you don’t have a processor or grinder, use a sharp knife to finely chop the beef.
• Add more salad dressing 1 tablespoon at a time if you want it “wetter”.
• Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
• I don’t recommend freezing because of the salad dressing, or mayonnaise. Those just don’t freeze well.
