What to do with cooked leftover ribeyes

I have 2 1/2 leftover cooked ribeyes and I don't know what to do with them. Any ideas? Quick and easy is always good.

  1. One of our favorite things is a steak salad. Anything you enjoy, but what we like are greens, cherry tomatoes, a little fresh corn off-the-cob, red onion, crumbled blue cheese, small quartered new potatoes, croutons and sliced steak..vinaigrette. Mmmmm!

    Just happened to think that thinly sliced steak makes a great panini with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato grilled until the cheese gets all nice and melty!

      Yep, I second the steak salad. Sounds yummy to me!

        this is our favorite too.
        Or you can do steak soft tacos

      2. Slice thinly as possible, toss into a hot pan with a little oil just to warm them, not cook too much more, toss on some of your favorite cheese and make a fabulous cheese-steak sandwich. You could also saute some onions and mushrooms to go with that - YUM!

        1. Trim the cap from the heart, along the line of cartilage, leaving you with a palm-sized heart of uniform grain that's easy to slice thin for the sando's, as above. It's also fun to roll the slices and skewer singly on toothpicks, served with any dipping sauce (Tzatziki from yogurt is a fun hot-days dip).

          The remaining cap is the best muscle on a cow. Best served warm. Stir fry to reheat, and savor the mouthfeel of those muscle fibers separating.

          1. Honestly, one of my favorites is chopping up the ribeye with onion and bell peppers for steak and eggs the next morning. Some skillet potatoes, and then (since assuming it follows a rib-eye dinner the night before) you won't have to eat for a week!

            1. what is"leftover ribeyes"? Is that like "leftover wine?" I'm sorry, I don't understand either of these phrases.
