When you buy a big, expensive piece of meat, the last thing you want is to spend hours cooking it ... only for it to turn out dry and unsatisfying. But, if done right, a standing rib roast can provide a great home-cooked meal for a Sunday roast and then provide plenty of leftovers for a week's worth of easy throw-together meals.

Elizabeth Heiskell of the Debutante Farmer has the answer to all your standing rib roast worries, with an easy-to-follow recipe and plenty of idea for leftover meals.

A concise starter recipe is all you need to become a real pro at cooking this mighty cut of meat.

A tangy, Asian-inspired cold noodle salad makes a great light lunch — or, for a heartier meal, throw in some leftover slices of beef.

Nothing says scrumptious, next-day meal quite like a perfectly crafted sandwich. These tortilla wraps have a spicy chipotle mayonnaise to give a little heat to your meat — without actually needing to heat anything up!
