10 Recipes Starring Your Steak Leftovers

Pita Pockets

There's nothing wrong with a simple steak sandwich, but when you have such a great ingredient, show it off by packing it into a pita pocket. These portable flatbreads are perfect for lunch and snacking. The pita's sealed bottom makes it easier to fill without fear of mishaps, so load on the extras. Add your favorite dressing or spread, and include some flavor notes that will give that leftover steak the respect it deserves. Try adding a combination of the ingredients below:

  • Feta, cream or Muenster cheese
  • sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • oil and vinegar dressing
  • red onion
  • green onion
  • black olives
  • diced fresh tomato
  • fresh spinach or romaine lettuce
  • garlic mayonnaise
  • guacamole
  • green pepper rings

If you need more inspiration, one of our favorites is Roast Beef and Feta Pitas with Cucumber Sauce. Give it a quick peek.
