You decided to go all out for the first barbeque of the year and purchased more steak than you, your guests, and everyone else there could possibly consume. However, you can do many different tasty things with your leftovers, regardless of whether you’ve already grilled everything or still have some raw slices left over. So here is a collection of 35 recipes for leftover steak that will do your favorite summer main dish credit, ranging from flank leftover steaks tacos to beef stroganoff.
1. 15-MINUTE SKILLET PEPPER LEFT STEAKS
Weeknight meals don’t get any easier—or quicker. Even better, one dish of this popular choice from the takeaway menu has less than 230 calories. Accompany the dish with plain rice.
2. TACOS DE FLANK STEAK CON SALSA DE CUCUMBERS SERVED
Who would have thought that a dinner that could fill you up could be so refreshing? Attribute that success to the cucumber-scallion salsa, which contains jalapeno and fresh cilantro and is prepared with lime juice. But, of course, don’t leave the house without the chips and guacamole!
3. ONE SERVING OF THE KETO STEAK AND BLUE CHEESE SALAD
This satisfying supper for one just requires six primary items from you to complete. If you have more mouths to feed, you shouldn’t worry about it too much: It shouldn’t be too difficult to scale up the recipe (or quadruple).
4. MINI LEFTOVER STEAKS SLIDERS
Sliders are a certain hit at any event, whether a picnic to watch softball or a party for the Super Bowl. About fifteen minutes is all you need to put up these sandwiches, which use leftover steak cut very thinly, white cheddar cheese, and a few key condiments.
5. STEAK STIR-FRY
The freshest vegetables, lean flank leftover steaks, and most basic ingredients in the cabinet add up to the simplest supper ever. Although the recipe asks for carrots, onions, and bell peppers, you may substitute those ingredients with any other vegetables you have on hand, such as broccoli or bok choy.
6. EASY 30-MINUTE BEEF STROGANOFF
This meal is the epitome of comfort cuisine, with its buttery noodles, soft mushrooms, and tenderloin that almost melts in your mouth. A large amount of sour cream and various fresh herbs are the key ingredients that put this dish over the top.
7. THAI BEEF BOWLS WITH RICE NOODLES
If your go-to happy place is the neighborhood Thai takeout joint, you should add this meal to your repertoire. It can be prepared leftover steaks in under 30 minutes. Imagine snap peas, lettuce, other fresh herbs, chewy rice vermicelli, meat stir-fried in a spicy marinade, and zingy stir-fried beef.
8. GRILLED ROASTED BEEF TACOS WITH BOURSIN CHEESE
Since the meat tastes from the marinade, this is an excellent dish for using up the raw leftover steak you have in the refrigerator. In addition, the apple cider vinegar included in it will assist in tenderizing the meat before it is cooked.
9. SKILLET STEAK WITH ASPARAGUS AND POTATOES
Look no farther than this one-pan masterpiece if you have a full sirloin or strip steak on your hands (or stored in your freezer) that you want to consume before it goes bad. The lemon-herb sauce is not even worth discussing at this point.
10. STEAK SKEWERS WITH CHIMICHURRI SAUCE
Hold off on putting away the grill just yet, because the BBQ star will have another go at it. Then, after threading cubes of beef tenderloin onto skewers with chunks of red onion and the juiciest cherry tomatoes you can find, sear them until they reach the desired level of doneness.
11. BEEF FLATBREAD WITH HERB SAUCE
It may be meant to be shared as an appetizer. But, on the other hand, it is not unheard of for us to devour it all by ourselves for supper on occasion. The recipe asks for ground beef, but we are willing to wager that it would taste just as wonderful with steak that has been cut very thinly or cubed instead.
12. THE TRADITIONAL STUFFED PEPPERS
If we talk about replacing ground beef with steak, these flavorful, cheesy pockets of pleasure are overdue for an improvement. Of course, you are welcome to use pesto or chimichurri instead of marinara sauce.
13. SKILLET FAJITAS
Even though the recipe asks for chicken cutlets, you may easily adapt this traditional dish to use beef instead. Simply sear the steak on both sides before placing it and the vegetables in the oven to finish cooking.
14. STEAK FRIED RICE
Also known as the simplest method for using any leftover vegetables and protein. If you need to clean out the crisper drawer in your refrigerator or the freezer, throw in some peas, carrots, baby corn, bell peppers, scallions, and any other food you have lying about.
15. STEAK SANDWICH WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS AND BRIE
Take a look at this, the most elegant meal that has ever been served. The recipe asks for a sweet and sticky fig jam, but we are seriously considering using our simple homemade onion jam instead.
16. CREAMY VODKA STEAK PASTA WITH ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS
Prepare yourself for a mountain of zoodles topped with buttery steak and the vodka sauce you typically use from a jar. (Our recipe is perfect, so if you want to go the extra mile and make your own sauce, feel free to use it.)
17. LEFTOVER STEAKS BURRITO BOWLS
Because it uses cilantro cauliflower rice, this stunning dish adheres to the dietary restrictions of the ketogenic diet, Whole30, and the Paleo diet. Then, put the finishing touches on it by topping it with all the fixings, such as sliced avocado, corn that has been grilled, fresh pico de gallo, or even mango salsa
18. SHEET PAN PHILLY CHEESESTEAK
I mean, come on, that’s just brilliant. Imagine paper-thin slices of sirloin beef, onion, bell peppers, and mushrooms sautéed in a flavorful marinade and covered in a provolone cheese sauce made from scratch. You may serve it on top of rice or pasta, or you can keep things traditional by heaping the mixture into hoagie buns.
19. GRILLED STEAKHOUSE PIZZA
Our favorite barbeque magic trick come summer? Grilled pizza. The grates are just what the crust needs to develop bubbles, become crisp, and achieve a golden brown color. After that, it’s ready to be topped with gorgonzola crumbles, arugula, grilled Portobello mushrooms, and steak.
20. GREEK STEAK SALAD, FRENCH BREAD WITH SOFT BOILED EGGS, AND FETA
Simply said, it’s the most refined open-faced sandwich ever created. Then, in charcuterie fashion, you can either serve it to your guests by the slice or cut the bread below so that it is easier to lift, and then let them pick their own toppings.
21. NACHOS CON STEAK
We think of Taco Tuesday supper when you mention appetizers for a party. Along with all the mouthwatering toppings, this meal provides enough protein to keep you full, thanks to the steak and beans.
22. BAKED POTATOES STUFFED WITH STEAK FAJITAS AND TOPPED WITH AVOCADO CHIPOTLE CREMA
Put the sour cream and bacon pieces out of your mind. These adorable bites are instantly elevated to the status of an entrée, thanks to the presence of steak, vegetables, and cheese. Oh, and you’ll want to immerse yourself completely in the Greek yogurt crème.
23. BEEF SATAY
The marinade contains dry-roasted peanuts, brown sugar, lemongrass, curry powder, ginger, soy sauce, and lime, and it has a degree of taste that is just unparalleled. But the spicy peanut dipping sauce has us giddy with anticipation on a whole other level.
24. SPICY SRIRACHA STEAK AND EGGS
When this breakfast masterpiece arrives at the table, you know it will be a fantastic morning. The secret to success is a marinade with a Thai flavor created with fish sauce, chile-garlic sauce, lime, ginger, and honey. Then, while you brew the coffee, let the steak take in the sauce’s flavor.
25. PARMESAN PECORINO STEAK FLATBREAD
Crisp, flavorful, and oh, so easy to understand. Imagine a layer of cheesy lemon-garlic sauce on top of a layer of flank leftover steaks that have been pan-seared with baby arugula and red onion. To make matters even better, given that it begins with pizza dough purchased from a shop, the total time required is just thirty-five minutes from beginning to end.
26. POTATO FRY STEAK SALAD TOPPED WITH BLUE CHEESE BUTTER AND SWEET POTATOES
Any salad that has sweet potato fries is exactly what we’re looking for in a salad. If you don’t like the funkiness of blue cheese, you may replace it with shredded Parmesan or garlic instead. Blue cheese has a reputation for being a controversial ingredient.
27. KABAB CHENJEH (GRILLED SAFFRON BEEF KEBAB)
This simple dish was created in Darya, a restaurant in the Little Persia neighborhood of West Los Angeles. It’s as easy as combining the ingredients for the marinade, letting the beef soak for as long as your patience will allow, and then grilling it until it reaches the desired level of doneness. You may serve it on top of long-grain rice, or you can wrap it in warm lavash.
28. GREEK STEAK AND PESTO SALAD GYROS
Basil-pine nut pesto. Fresh olive tapenade. Homemade pita. Uber delicious flank leftover steak.
