Need suggestion for using this leftover beef

I made these last night:
Italian Beef Sandwiches Recipe | Taste of Home Recipes
and usually I'll freeze the leftover meat for another day.
But, the freezer's FULL!

Any suggestions as to what to do with the leftover meat for tonight's dinner? Thanks, all!

I would possibly cook some rice or pasta and stir the reheated beef through that or even serve with. The beef looks so nice, there is no need to jazz it up or anything. You could add some other veggies.

Make a casserole with cooked pasta and veggies - sliced, sauteed onions and bell peppers and a can of diced tomatoes. Bake for 1/2 hour or so, top with cheese, bake another 5 minutes. HTH.

Maybe cook some noodles or rice and stir in the meat along with some frozen veggies and make a casserole or make a veggie soup and add the beef to that.

Thicken up the "gravy" a bit and make open-faced sandwiches with mashed taters

Use the leftover meat as you would hamburger in any casserole recipe.

UB - I made the most delightful tomato sandwich the other day and decided to go your route and sprinkle with hot sauce - most excellent! ...I ended up waaaaay beyond a sprinkle

Wow! Thanks for the ideas, folks!

I think the taco idea sounds great, since the meat's already shredded, and I've already got flour tortillas, tomatoes, green onions and ripe avocados on hand.
