Leftovers are a staple in our house. I love the convenience of them when our schedules get busy, and what is up with recipes tasting better the next day?! So after a lovely steak dinner for my birthday, I thought what better way to keep celebrating than to put together a list of leftover steak recipes you’re going to love!
We have everything from stroganoff and pasta to stir fry and rice!
Leftover Steak Recipes You’ll Love
Leftover Steak Recipes Stir Fry with Rice
- Cut up steak (Assuming it’s cooked as it’s leftovers)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1-2 bags of frozen stir-fry vegetables
- 1 Cup Stir Fry Teriyaki Sauce
- Small can of drained mushrooms
- 1/2 chopped zucchini
- Brown Rice
In a large skillet, add in the oil and stir-fry vegetables on medium to high heat. Cook until thawed. Then stir in zucchini, mushrooms, steak and teriyaki sauce. Continue to stir until it’s all mixed up. Serve over rice.
Leftover Steak Recipes for Stroganoff
- Penne Pasta
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/3 large Onion (1/4” slices)
- 3 large cloves Garlic (chopped small)
- 1 1/2 cups Mushrooms (1/4” slices)
- 2 tbsp Ghee
- 2 tbsp All-purpose Flour
- 1 cup Skim Milk
- 1 cup Beef Broth
- 2 tbsp Red Wine
- 1 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp Pepper
- Leftover steak cut into strips (About 1/2 a pound)
- Oregano to top (optional)
You’ll want to cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. In a large skillet, gather your olive and vegetables. Sauté your onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, then add in your mushrooms for an additional 2 minutes. Remove vegetables and place aside.
Then, turn your heat down to medium and melt your ghee in the same large skillet (veggies not in it). Then whisk in your flour until it gets thick and turns a golden color. Then add in your milk a little at a time (a little less than 1/3 cup at a time) and continue to whisk. This should all start to thicken up within about 2-4 minutes. Then add in your broth, red wine, salt and pepper.
Now, just add in your leftover steak and pasta!
We also wanted to feature a few leftover steak recipes from some of our favorite blogs!
Leftover Steak & Quinoa Bowl
If you’re looking for a quick, yummy lunch Caroline’s Cooking Leftover Steak Buddha bowl! While it has a few ingredients to it, it only takes a few minutes to assemble! Plus it has such a flavorful punch it’s going to make lunch memorable!
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!
We even have a good Leftover Steak Pizza!
This Chimichurri Pizza makes any night of the week feel like TGIF! We love that it’s simple to make, and we even made it a tad easier with a store-bought crust!
