Warming up left overs

Ok some thing are easier than others  to reheat for another meal from all those left overs that it seems most have after the holiday meal.

So what is some of the best way to warm the following things with out over cooking or drying out. Though microwave are ok, they do change the texture and well the doneness.

1.Prime rib

2. Turkey

3. Stuffing

4 Mashed potato

5 Yams

6.Green bean casorole

I just did a rib roast for Christmas. Roast beef sandwiches all week yay! laugh I did a leftover meal with it where I headed up gravy on the stovetop until it was quite hot (adding a bit of water as it simmered) then put thinly sliced roast on a plate with some salad and fresh cooked veggies. I then ladled a generous portion of hot gravy right on the roast slices. The gravy warmed up the beef well enough for me!

i usually just eat the veggies cold. If I'm going to heat them up, I'll do it in a skillet for a few minutes or microwave for a short amount of time... usually 30 seconds to a minute at most. Sometimes I'll do a combination of the two... 30 seconds in the microwave and a minute or two tossed in a hot skillet.

I usully do it about the same though i do pre heat the meat a little in micro...deforst cyle for about 45 seconds, just to take some of the chill out. I als make french dip sandwiches from the meat. This i quick blance the meat in the boiling au jus just before layering on bread. I also make a Philly style sandwich. Here i saute bell pepper, mushrooms and red onion until a little adente the layer the meat on to of them. In a toaster oven I have my bread with cheese melting, when that is done i add the meat and veggies to it.

Yea veggies are harder to warm , and i do that similar to your method.

I'm always a little scared to microwave meat... but I guess a a lower power setting/short amount of time wouldn't be a bad thing for leftovers.

Hi chef Jacob and all forum users.

First I would like to say thank you for such a website. I really enjoy your videos and podcasts.

I want to ask a question if there is a way where you can list all the questions that you have ever asked or participated in?

I can't seem to find such a feature though it appears on some other forums that I'm linked up with such as the cha-cha developers website.

There is an option under my profile where I can list links to all topics I've contributed to.

I am working towards coming up with an equilibrium brine for a rotisserie chicken.  I am not considering Gradient brine in this case, as we would like to just soak the chickens possibly for 12-18 hours and directly cook them in the rotisserie directly out from the brine.  The goal for me is to reach the salinity range of 1% using the brine and the flavors/spices included.

Has any one worked on a brine like this and can help with some basic measurements to start on a brine for a 50 pounds whole chickens ??
