quick and easy leftover steak stir fry

We are obsessed with this Easy Leftover Steak Stir Fry Recipe because it makes enough for at least two nights worth of dinner!! It’s also so simple to throw together! The hardest part is just cooking the beef, and after that it’s super simple and very versatile.

This recipe works whether you’re following a low-carb, keto, or the whole 30 diet. Plus, it’s a favorite family dinner!

Time Hacks

  • Look for pre-cut skirt or flank steak at the grocery versus having to cut it up yourself.
  • Use frozen stir-fry veggies instead of fresh. They’re frozen at their peak freshness so you’ll still get the same benefits!
  • Pair this with rice cauliflower or carrot noodles for a low-carb or paleo-friendly option.
  • Not paleo or gluten-free? We love instant brown rice with this dish!

Can you keep leftover stir fry?

Absolutely! We love to eat leftover steak stir fry, and you could also keep leftover chicken stir fry. Just keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat it. Both varieties should last 3-5 days.

How long can you keep leftover stir fry?

You can keep leftover stir fry for 3-5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat it. You can then reheat and eat.

Is it OK to reheat stir fry?

Yes, you can reheat stir fry in the microwave or on the stove. If you choose to do the stove, we like to add another tablespoon of oil and reheat the dish on medium to low heat. You’ll want to stir until warmed

Leftover Steak Enchiladas

One of my favorite dishes to make is enchiladas. I aim for lower calorie tortillas and reduced fat cheese to help with the calories. We also load up on toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole and Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream) for a healthy punch.

The best part? They usually have quite a few servings so you can eat on them for a while! We love Platter Talk’s Leftover Steak Enchiladas for all of these reasons!
