Steak Fried Rice and Creative Leftovers

Fried rice is a delicious way to turn leftovers into something special. It is a way to use those last few things from the fridge, without your family feeling like they are eating the same thing over and over again.

The other great thing about fried rice is that it is a good way to make meat stretch to feed more than it normally would. Steak fried rice is a perfect example of that.

My husband loves steak and would eat it often, like everyday, if he could. However steak can be expensive to feed a family, so when we have steak, I like to cook one or two extra to use later in the week. Not only does this save cooking time later in the week, but it stretches one extra steak into a whole dinner.

I love serving it as a steak salad, especially during the summer. It makes for a light and delicious warm weather meal.

Steak fried rice is another easy way to use up an extra or leftover steak. And again it turns one steak into a meal for a whole family.

If you don’t have steak, don’t worry, this works with just about any leftover meat, not just steak. You can easily use leftover chicken or pork. You can also add whatever vegetables you want to it. Use the basic idea and make it your own.

Lynn's Kitchen Adventures


  1. My kids love steak, so it’s not often that we have leftovers. I do have some BBQ ribs leftover from tonight’s dinner. The sauce could give this an interesting twist.

  2. Jessica says:

    Don’t mix your eggs with soy sauce and then scramble in the pan with oil. It’s a brown greasy mess… That picture is a normal scrambled egg. We had to re scramble 2 new eggs and fry the rice with the extra soy.

  3. Hi Crystal, I’m an American-born Chinese, but wanted to share my grandma’s ingredients that make fried rice really amazing. We brown 5 cloves of minced garlic and remove it from the pan to add after frying the rice in the same oil. Plus we mix in a few drops of sesame oil and 2 stalks of minced green onions. Optional…adding 2 T. of oyster sauce will take it to whole new level…but it contains msg.

  4. I made the recipe kinda, I just didn’t use the eggs but I does taste wonderful

  5. I just made this and it was great. It was a big hit with my family. This will definitely be made again and again. Thanks!
