It’s not unusual to overestimate your appetite when cooking steaks. You think you’ll be able to down a few of them in one sitting but end up waiving the white flag after the first one. This, however, is a better scenario than you might think. Leftover steak means that you have an opportunity to make a delicious meal tomorrow. Check out some of our favorite ideas below.

Breakfast Burrito

Can it get any better than this? Scramble some eggs and add thin slices of your leftover steak. Cook in a pan and then add to a warmed-up tortilla alongside some cheese, sour cream, and salsa. Enjoy a filling and delicious breakfast.

Philly Cheesesteak

Sure, homemade Philly cheesesteaks will never be as great as the ones you get in a Philly cheesesteak place, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be good. Caramelize some onions, warm up thin slices of the leftover steak and combine with cheese in a hoagie bun.

Steak Salad

This might be the simplest thing you can make with leftover steak that will give you a pleasing meal. Slice up your leftover steak and combine it in a bowl with cherry tomatoes, Feta cheese, and basil. Throw in some caramelized red onions, and be surprised how amazing it tastes.


Finally, leftover steak is great for hash. Dice up some potatoes and sauté them until they are crispy golden. Cut the steak into cubes and add to potatoes alongside some caramelized onions, minced garlic, and seasoning like paprika.
