Well, there are times.

There was the time, almost thirty years ago, when my then boss took the whole office out for one Xmas party to a notable steakhouse in Tama, IA. You went through the meat cases and picked out your own steak, all of which were big enough to choke a Tyrannosaur, then grilled it yourself to your own taste on an absolutely huge indoor grille and the house provided the rest.

My wife and I had to take some of our steaks home. We had enough to make pepper steak and rice for both of us and our two kids the next day.

Guess I'm the rare person who doesn't like steak. I've found 2 in my life that I like, but otherwise I always have leftovers because people keep insisting I try new steaks at this place or that.

I have dogs, there is no leftover steak.

It's precooked beef. You use in any recipe that involves cooking beef then adding it to other ingredients. Are people really reaching the age in which they cook for themselves and not figuring out how to use precooked meat?

I never have leftover steak, but Eileen Dover does. I take it home and then the next day or so, I slice it up into thin strips and put it in my ramen noodles so I can have some just like I used to get when I was in Korea.

I've always figured the best steaks are the ones you can eat the leftovers the next day, cold. Not because I don't love steak, but because I figure it's a mark of the quality of the meat.

Slice it up real thin. Put it on a roll with the sharpest cheddar you can find. Maybe a little sauce. Delicious.

Used to have a similar place here but they had to close because the insurance premiums got too high. I remember that their smallest steak was a fillet mignon that weighed in around a pound. The porter house was 28 ozs.

They used to have beer on ice at the grill station for a buck and free sticks with marshmallows for you to play with as you grilled your own steaks.

if you have time to roast marshmallows and drink a beer while your steak grills, you're cooking it far too long

Sometimes you take your wife to a steakhouse for dinner, and she wants the 10oz filet mignon, but you make her order the 64oz double porterhouse instead. Voila, leftover steak.

I was stunned that this person felt the need to include actual recipes. Allow me to summarize what she said for those of you that drtfa:

1) Cut leftover steak into cubes or strips
2) serve it with different stuff.

And then manages to say it about 10 different ways.

If you originally pan-fried a steak, you can re-cook it without cutting it up by putting it into a skillet of bubbling water that just about covers the meat for about ten minutes or less. Too long and it turns into a pot roast.

Obviously, it's imperative that a steak keep its moisture, so you could also re-marinate it too before frying it up.

if you use that bud light to simmer the slices of leftover steak in, you may be on to something good

there is no leftover steak as long as one can remove a belt and unbutton your pants/jeans or if you have a pair of "eating pants" ready to go. This plan also helps during Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners too.

Leftover steak omelettes are delicious. If you have some mozzarella or other mild melting cheese and some raw onion, all the better.

Most people overcook omelettes though (similar to steak). Done properly, an omelette cooks for about 30 seconds. That and the resulting warm egg blanket are just enough to warm the steak from the fridge without cooking it.
 
2012-09-19 11:13:25 AM  
Well there might be one reason...

However the challenge isn't just about meat. You have to finish within one hour and eat two of every item from the relish plate (that's two carrots, two olives,etc.), a regular size salad, a baked potato OR ten fries, a piece of french bread, a beverage other than water, and ice cream for dessert.

The myriad uses for leftover steak are just one more reason to cook your steak rare. If you reheat it, you don't end up drying the shiat out of it.

/Partial to making steak sandwiches and steak salad with the leftovers.

Rewarm it in the oven for the following breakfast. Serve with bacon and runny eggs - possibly very buttered toast. If you had potatoes leftover then fry those bastards into hash browns.

There are two meals worth eating in life. One is steak, the other is breakfast. Steak for breakfast is a holy thing indeed.

when you say "runny eggs" are you referring to overeasy/overmedium where the white is cooked but the yolk is liquid? if so, great! the yolk on the steak = yummmmmmmmm!

in fact, i like to put such eggs ON TOP of the meat

runny whites, on the other hand, can be slimy and gross

actually i was thinking that unless one is vegetarian/vegan, there is no reason for one not to enjoy steak. so one is indeed weird for not liking steak.

then again, while i joke with/tease friends & coworkers for their eating habits, i honestly don't care what people do and don't like to eat.

I used to not like steak too. On the rare occassion that my mother cooked cuts of beef for us (and called them steak) she would ensure that there was not a hint of pinkness, moistness or flavor left behind. I remember chewing and chewing, and eventually washing down wads of tasteless protien with gulps of milk.

Only in the last few years have I come to appreciate a good steak. In fact, I cooked one for myself just last night. An nice, organic, NY steak. This is only the second steak I've cooked and it turned out really well (seared in the cast iron skillet and finished in the oven).

At one point, as I was about to dig in, I thought to myself, 'maybe I shouldn't eat the whole thing now, but save some for addition to a salad or something.' Then I just laughed and laughed.

Soak leftover steak in Zip sauce (a soy-based marinade with spices and clarified butter) and add some sliced Portabella mushrooms. Take out 1-2 hours later, sear in skillet as-is. Eat and enjoy.

Pepper and garlic.

7 minutes per side.

There will be no leftovers.

Heh, considering that's like eating six 12oz stakes in one sitting I never even tried. I've always wanted to try one of their hamburgers but somehow the stake menu always distracts me.

I also had a mother with deficient cooking skills (she divorced the cook in the family). She would fry ribeyes well-done on the stove in a teflon pan and serve them with ketchup. When she baked a pot roast, she'd take it out of the oven every half hour, put a meat thermometer in it to check its doneness, remove the thermometer and put it back in the oven. I was in my twenties before I discovered pot roasts are not normally the consistency of saddlehorns. 

On my way to a butcher shop to pick up a couple of aged ribeyes. Plan to pan-sear in a cast-iron skillet and finish in the oven. Five minutes on each side, then five more in the oven. And no goddam ketchup.

How to reheat steak.

Everyone has tried this and screwed it up. I had an idea one day... When have you ever had a HOT steak? They're never hot, they're warm, so just warm it up enough to make soft and pleasant. Here's how I do it, and I have had great success with this method:

Pre-heat a pan on low,put your steak into the pan and put a cover on it, check it every 5 minutes until it's warmed up in the middle. It'll probably take 10 minutes total. If it's sizzling, it's too hot, you want to gently warm it through.

NEVER PUT IT IN THE MICROWAVE!!! You will ruin it every time, so take a couple extra minutes.
