What to do with leftover steak

If you're planning on grilling steak this weekend, here's a great way to use leftovers: Put it on top of a salad instead of trying to reheat it and risking overcooking: Scrapcook: Transform Leftover Steak With a Ponzu-Mustard Vinaigrette

I usually save it for steak and eggs or a steak sandwich. However, that salad looks pretty darned good for next time.

Oh ymmm...does that ever look good!

My latest trick with leftover rare paper thin sliced tri tip, was to tuck it into a hollowed out baked potato shell stuffed with melted cheese and chives. The melted cheese was just enough to warm the steak slices. Ohhhhhhh swoon!!

I think if I had any leftover steak, I'd be tempted to try to make beef jerky.

Yeah, you'd find leftover steak in my refrigerator, right between the leftover wine and the leftover dessert.

That does look good, GG.

Unlike some others here, I almost always have leftover steak - there's no way I can eat a whole rib eye by myself what with the salad and fixin's, so it's usually a steak sandwich the next day. Sometimes I slice them thinly and top a green salad with them, or as mentioned, steak and eggs.

Unfortunately for folks that live alone, it is almost impossible to find small quality steaks. So I will remove the strip from the side and freeze it separately. Just enough for one meal. But that still leaves a bigger piece along with the bone. So I trim off just a piece of that from the bone, and freeze that separately also. Then I freeze what is left and end up with three meals. Should I not eat all of what I made for one meal, I make a small pot of beef stew with it. One carrot, a small piece of celery and a small potato. I also save any gravy I made when cooking any of the pieces. That too goes into the stew.
