New York steak for Fajitas?

How bout a nice steak sandwich on bakery fresh bread. Hot or cold.

Yes, carne asada is beef. Puerco asado is similar but usually slow roasted.

We made steak fajitas last night and they were good! My son asked for steak nachos, so I piled thinly sliced strips of steak on some tortilla rounds, sprinkled with shredded sharp cheddar and topped it with sour cream and chunky salsa. He loved it.

I too love steak salad but I didn't have any lettuce in the fridge (used it all up when we had the grilled steak earlier). With the heat what it has been here lately, I will think three times before I hop in the car and go get something we are out of. Fortunately I have a very well stocked kitchen so it is usually fresh produce that I buy weekly. Sometimes you just make do with odds and ends you find at home!

Reps coming to everyone - thanks gang!

One of my favorites is to slice them thinly, and serve cold over a tossed green salad.
Keep the marinade from Carne. Don't reheat the steak, reheat the marinade to boiling and drop the sliced steak in it. This keeps it from drying out and makes it even more juicy.

Count me in as another steak salad lover, I am using my leftover steak from last night's dinner to make a steak salad tonight. What I do is use mixed greens + chopped romaine, add sliced cucumber, edamame beans, kidney beans, red and yellow bell peppers, red onions, avocado, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, blue cheese and then strips of steak. I use a citrus vinaigrette recipe I have for the dressing as I usually prefer vinaigrettes to heavier dressings. I've also been known to throw in mandarin oranges or pear slices as well. I do love to throw the whole kitchen sink into my salads!

I am not a big fan of leftover steak but I have gone the fajita route and its the best way to go in my opinion. I cut the steaks up into small strips and then sautee in a little olive oil with green peppers and onions. Sprinkle with garlic powder or salt or seasoning of choice (such as a mexican seasoning) and serve with tortillas. I have also added sliced mushrooms to the mix. If you do not have tortillas, you can just serve the steak mixture with rice or potatoes.

So many ideas so little time...LOL
I always take leftovers like that and divide them up if there is enough then I do beef and noodles or chicken and noodles, fajitas, stir fry and hot beef/chicken sandwiches with gravy over the top.

Since I am coming into this thread just a little late, I can't help you with your leftover steaks!
However, grilling season is upon us again and nobody mentioned rewarming steak and other things like hamburgers and hotdogs. For those of us who don't like our steaks well-done and see our poor hamburgers and hotdogs already cooked nearly to death, I'd like to offer this option for re-warming.

To re-warm steaks, burgers, dogs and many other grilled/cooked meats: Steam them.

I buy cheap white washcloths and tea towels that I use only for food in the kitchen.

Turn the water faucet on "hot" and let the water heat up. Wet to soaking a wash cloth, wring it out a little so that it isn't dripping, but isn't dry and spread it out over a microwave safe dish. Put steak, burger, dog, etc. on the cloth. Take second cloth and wet it the same way. Pull the edges and sides of bottom cloth up over meat. Lay second cloth on top of meat, tucking the sides down under the first cloth (much like you would do if you were wrapping it in foil to refrigerate it). Put plate in microwave on high for 10 to 90 seconds***. Meat will steam but will not cook. If you start with a "medium", you'll end up with [pretty much] a medium - if you don't over cook it.

That's where the *** comes in: How long (10 to 90 seconds) depends on what you are re-warming and how thick it is. 1 min 30 is about the max time you have on a large, thich (2") steak before it is cooking instead of just re-warming. I usually hit mine in a 20 or 30 second blast the first time and then [turn over the package] follow up with a 10 or 15 second blast if needed. Between "blasts" of microwave, you can open the microwave and look and/or touch what you are warming, be sure to re-wrap it well - and make sure your cloths are wet. Doing one steak or two burgers at a time works best.

If you decide to do this the next time you grill, toss some hot dogs on the grill and practice warming them up before you start on that expensive steak. The time required to re-warm really does depend on the thickness of the meat, so it is different every time.

You can re-warm any cooked meat like this if it doesn't have breading or sauce/gravy on it.

Cold steak sliced on a nice roll with watercress and garlic mayonnaise is pretty darn tasty!
