Leftover Steak?

Anyone have any good ideas for what I can make with leftover steak, aside from steak and eggs? Many thanks!

  1. fajita, or nice big hearty salad with artichokes, hearts of palm, jazz it up, etc.

    1. I usually slice the leftovers nice and thin and make a nice big salad with my favorite greens, good tomatoes, blue cheese, and a basil shallot vinagrette.

        I did that just last week, but I roasted the tomatoes along with mushrooms and brussels sprouts, then tossed those with the meat and cheese with some romaine, sliced red onion and a hearty helping of sourdough croutons for a nice wintery panzanella salad.

      2. 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!

          Love a steak sandwich! I like the way you describe how you make it, but I also like it as a french dip with au jus!

            Steak Sandwiches are always good eats. I like mine on multi grain bread. Steak slices thin with melted gruyere on it. Mayo and whole grain mustard on the bread and a few pickle slices. For me it has to be the Claussen Hearty Garlic sandwich pickle slices.

              I make a similar version - sauteed mushrooms are added to the mix. So good!

            2. We do Chinese broccoli beef (stir fry the broccoli w/ garlic, red chilies, oyster sauce then throw the steak in to heat through).

              Or pot pie.

              1. 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 Buy the extra large size flour tortillas so there's plenty!
