Suggestions for leftover overcooked steak
We grilled steak for some friends last night. A lot of steak. Tragically, we left it on the grill too long and it's now a bit dry. And we have lots of leftovers, all sliced.
What might I do with it to make it palatable for tomorrow night's dinner? Maybe cooking it again in the slow cooker with some kind of wine/tomato combo to tenderize? Two restrictions--the dinner must be both gluten- and dairy-free.
Thanks for any suggestions.
I like to use it for Beef stroganoff.
You can either use the store bought packs (Gasp!) or just make your own. Simmering the meat in the sauce will make it a little more tender.
I ALWAYS have stroganoff the day after steak. My wife and Daughter leave plenty of leftovers!
Shred it and:
- Simmer in beef gravy for hot beef over toast points, a la "diner" style
- Make it a base for tacos, burritos or enchiladas, either simply mixed with refried beans and some appropriate spices or a tomato-based sauce
Cube it and make:
- scrambled eggs?
I realize none of these are particularly chowish recommendations, but any port in a storm will do with leftovers.
Throw it out or give it to the dog. Fried cow that someone suggested is meat that is braised, shredded and then crispened a bit in hot oil. I doubt that you can duplicate it with sliced overcooked meat. Perhaps you could chop it up and cook it in a pot of barbeque sauce. Yeah - that will work. Cook it slow until it's tender.
Your suggestion makes me think of Thai (or Issan) beef jerky, which I love. But have never made. I think it is marinated, dried in a low oven, then deep fried. And nicely spicy. Perhaps the over-cooked steaks can be marinated with a little oil, dried again to absorb the spices, and fried.
