I love a good steak salad just like irishnyc described below, but my favorite would have to be a steak sandwich. I caramelize some onions in a skillet and add the thinkly sliced steak at the end to heat through. Buy some crusty rolls or french bread and toast. Top with the meat, caramalized onions and fontina cheese. Stick it in the oven until the cheese melts and slather on a mixture of mayo and horseradish. Delicious!
Steak quesedillas are one of the ways I use left ofter steak. They are delicious done with melty cheeses, scallions, cilantro, tomatoes, grilled onions and peppers. And serve with homemade fresh salsa, cilantro,olives, sour cream and guacamole. In fact they might work for the Super Bowl....hm Buy the extra large size flour tortillas so there's plenty!
I'm a huge fan of steak sandwiches and quesadillas, but this is my favorite way to use leftover steak. After my DH and I go out for a steak dinner, I transform our doggie bag into a tasty supper for two.
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 or 3 tsp. curry powder
1 cup (or more) applesauce
2 bananas, sliced
1 cup (or more) leftover steak or chicken, cut into very thin slices
Optional: any leftover vegetables, for example mashed potatoes, sweet potato, carrots, peas
Peanuts, sliced almonds or slivered almonds (preferably toasted)
Raisins or currants
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add onion to the skillet and sauté until soft and translucent.
Add 2 teaspoons curry powder for a mildly spiced dish, or 3 teaspoons for more assertive taste. Stir the curry in the pan for a minute, to release its aroma.
Pour in the applesauce and stir.
Add the banana slices and stir.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until the sauce is hot. The bananas will break up. If the mixture starts to look dry and stick to the pan, lower the heat and add a bit more applesauce, or some water or chicken broth.
Add leftover meat, and any odds and ends of vegetables you have, and cook for another few minutes, until everything is heated through.
Serve over (or next to) rice.
If desired, serve with cucumber raita (peeled, shredded cucumber mixed with plain yogurt and ground cumin to taste), and garnishes in small bowls.
Yield: 3 or 4 servings
Not steak, but close. I just made a standing rib roast and made an awesome, rich hash with the leftovers. I used this Emeril recipe and it may be the best I've tried.: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/em...
I didn't bother with the mushroom sauce (would have been delicious, but way too rich), the egg or the bread. Served it with a simple butter lettuce salad. I may add the bread and poached egg for breakfast with leftovers.
