Poor planning, too much leftover roast beef

Thanks4Food | Feb 16, 2012 11:17 AM

I've got over 3 lbs of eye of the round left over and various upcoming events mean that we won't be able to eat much of it for the next couple of weeks. I've looked up recipes for using it up: shredding for enchiladas, slicing for stroganoff, chopping for soup. I've ground up a small portion for beef salad sandwiches but still have the majority to deal with.

The cupboard is a bit bare right now but I've got some packets of the IKEA cream sauce mix (that they use on their meatballs), beef broth, mushrooms, and a little sour cream. Thought I could make a sauce, slice the meat to serve over rice. But do I prepare this and freeze in small portions or keep the roast whole and thaw later? Would the small amount of sour cream be okay? (I don't have the cream the sauce packet calls for--thought a little s.c. would help thicken up the beef broth and milk I'll use.)
