  1. People who love eating some of the finest steaks at restaurants may try to eat their entire dinner even if they start feeling too full, knowing how much better the food tastes while it's fresh. Reheating steak from a restaurant such as Myron's Prime Steakhouse the next day just doesn't produce the same marvelous flavor effects. Nevertheless, it can be better to bring some leftovers home than stuffing oneself to the point of discomfort. View the menu for this particular dining establishment.

    Reheating a steak in a regular oven can dry it out, and reheating it in a microwave can turn the meat rubbery and tough. A better option is to cut up the steak and add it to another meal. Beef from a place considered the best steakhouse in the area can make an ordinary stir-fry a superb full dinner. The process uses high heat so that even raw meat is cooked very quickly. Steak that's already been cooked to perfection only needs a minute or so in the wok. That short reheating time keeps it close to the level of doneness the person requested at the restaurant. A main problem with reheating is that it tends to start cooking the steak again.

    Another option is to heat the steak in a pan on the stove after covering it with beef broth. That keeps it moist. The steak can be cut up first and vegetables can be added to make an impromptu beef stew. Another possibility is to use the meat for an open-face sandwich along with potato chips or french fries. It may seem a bit sacrilegious to think of pouring gravy on the meat, but that actually is a fine way to include leftovers in a next-day meal.

    Leftover steak, cut into strips, also is delicious in fajitas and burritos. The strips can be quickly marinated on the stove in olive oil or butter just until they sizzle. The steak also can be chopped up and added to homemade chili. The meat is a flavorful addition to Italian meals such as spaghetti and lasagna. U.S. residents have tended to "Americanize" ethnic foods by adding ground beef, probably because it's generally affordable. When someone has high-quality leftover steak on hand, however, the ingredient turns the meal into a higher-scale dinner. Next time this person visits a website such as  http://myronsprime.com/reservations/  to make plans for an evening out, the possibility of bringing home leftover steak may seem like an intriguing idea.
