  1. Slice very thin and mix up a thai beef salad
    Chop finely and mix in with some chile peppers and black beans and stuff in a burrito
    Cube and season and mix in with a twice-baked potato
    Slice thin, salt, serve on top of a rosemary cracker with some horseradish

    1. Make stroganoff: slice thin and sear quickly in a butter & oil mixture, set aside. Reduce heat, add chopped onion, garlic & mushrooms to the pan and cook until onions are translucent. return beef, season with S&P, reduce to low heat, add sour cream and freshly grated nutmeg, serve over egg noodles.

      1. re: weezycom

        i'm tight on money, and they also sent me home from that catering job with some raw sliced portobellos, so I made the stroganoff. It was awesome, much better than my mothers version made with about a 1/4 pound of ground beef and a pink of sour cream. It was hot, filling comfort food. perfect for an indiana december. thanks

      2. Here is a wonderful Jamie Oliver recipe that I often make with leftover steak. No need to cook the steak further; just bring to room temp.

        1. Whatever you do, don't microwave leftover steak, which steams it in its juices and turns it to flavorless pot roast. Reheating in the oven or a frying pan is better but still spoils the flavor.

          Take it out of the fridge, it slice thick and let it warm to room temperature. Butter some heavy rye bread or substantial white bread like ciabatta. Melt any steak gravy, add the juices that come out of the meat and pour it on a plate to sop the bread in. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper and get ready for heaven. The flavor is if anything better than the night before.
