If you find yourself heading home with a nice, juicy chunk of leftover steak from a dinner out, why not save it for tomorrow’s breakfast? Steak makes for a mouthwatering morning meal that’s packed with brain-boosting protein, iron, and several other health-promoting nutrients. It’ll also help keep you full until lunchtime, unlike packaged cereals and pastry items.
Not sure how to use your leftover steak to create a scrumptious and filling breakfast? We’re sharing a few super satisfying and simple recipes below.
This dish is the ultimate quick and satisfying breakfast recipe for leftover steak, especially when you’re in a rush. To make it, simply prepare a couple of eggs the way you like best, toss your steak in the pan to warm it, plate your breakfast, and enjoy! If you want to take it to another level, cheese is always a nice addition (provided your stomach can tolerate it, of course).
To make this dish, chop up your leftover steak into bite-size pieces (or smaller chunks if you prefer). Beat a few eggs and toss the chopped steak and eggs into a hot skillet. Add a little cheese and feel free to throw in any vegetables of your choice too. Let the whole thing cook for a few minutes to solidify, fold it in half, plate your omelet, and dig in!'
For this dish, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand in addition to your leftover steak:
To make your steak and potatoes, start by chopping up your steak, baked potato, tomato, mushrooms, and green onions into small pieces. Add a splash of olive oil to a hot skillet and toss the potatoes into the pan. Cook them until they’re just a bit brown around the edges and then reduce the burner heat to medium.
Next, add the mushrooms and onions to the skillet and stir them a little until they begin to cook. Add in your chopped steak and continue cooking until the mushrooms soften and are cooked through. Toss your chopped tomatoes into the skillet, stir to distribute, and remove the pan from the heat when everything is completely heated.
Plate your breakfast and enjoy!
For a zesty take on steak, try a Mexican breakfast burrito! To make this dish, gather all of your favorite burrito or taco ingredients and chop up your leftover steak into bite-size pieces. If you like veggies in your burrito, chop those up into small pieces as well.
Once you have all of your fillings chopped and ready, grab a couple of eggs and scramble them up. Add in any veggies you want and allow them to cook through. Next, add in as much cheese as you like and toss a lid on your skillet to let everything melt together.
Grab a flour tortilla, transfer the contents of your skillet to the center of the tortilla, wrap it all up, and voilá! Enjoy your mouth watering Mexican morning meal!
Breakfast hash requires meat, potatoes, and as many veggies as you like. This meal is super-satisfying, chock-full of nutrients, and really easy to throw together. Here’s what you’ll need for this dish:
To whip up your breakfast hash, start by chopping your potatoes and other veggies into small pieces. Toss a pat of butter into a hot skillet, add the potatoes and onions, and saute. When those are done, add in your leftover steak, any other veggies you’re using, and a little bit of cheese. Saute everything together until the whole thing is heated through. If you want, you can fry up an egg and add that on top for an extra filling meal.
If you want to eat your leftover steak whole, this is the recipe for you, and it only takes a couple of minutes to whip up. Simply add a pat of butter to a hot skillet, toss in the chopped veggies you like best — onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms work well — and saute until they’re almost cooked through.
Push your veggies to the side of the skillet and add your whole leftover steak to the pan to heat it through. When everything is hot and ready, plate the steak, slather the steak with the sauteed veggies, and if you’re feeling fancy, slice up an avocado and place it on top!
