Mario Goveia wrote in to submit what he calls “a gourmet, spicy Indo-American dish for leftovers.” Beef, pork, lamb, turkey, or chicken can be used, and he recommends three ways of serving it: with white rice (or try Basmati rice), with mashed potatoes, or wrapped in tortillas. It isn’t just Indo-American, it can be Mexican, too.
Leftovers, Indo-American Style
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, jalapeño, and bell peppers and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, spices, and water and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add meat and Italian dressing and simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and salt to taste. Serve hot or refrigerate for later use.
