London broil is a high-protein, low-calorie beef cut. It’s still one of the most flavorful steaks.
Unfortunately, cooking more of this meat than you need is a common occurrence, and figuring out what to make with leftover London broil can be daunting.
Believe me, I understand how you feel!
There’s no need to have a repeat of yesterday’s dinner, though.
I’ve put together a list of 15 leftover London broil recipes that’ll breathe new life into yesterday’s dinner while also adding color and joy to those who eat the new dishes.
There are numerous dishes to choose from, so you may find one that piques your interest.
Let’s jump right in!
1. Spicy Grilled Steak Caponata
Who knew that Italian and Mexican flavors are a match made in heaven?
Caponata is a popular sweet-sour Sicilian relish-like appetizer made from eggplants, olive oil, and tomatoes.
Mixed through it is the tart, spicy, and bright salsa verde, this dish is a must-try.
The flavor train doesn’t stop here, though.
The leftover London broil and crumbly cheese add a filling, creamy flavor to the salad, making it ideal for a late summer night.
2. London Broil Teriyaki Skewers
Nothing beats being outside on a summer afternoon eating delicious food. You want the food to be easy to hold and move around with, though.
These London broil teriyaki skewers aren’t just easy to hold, but they’re lip-smackingly delicious.
Glazed with a ginger-garlic-based teriyaki sauce, the pieces of London broil are skewered with sweet bell peppers and onions.
You can marinate the meat overnight or 15 minutes earlier. It’ll taste delicious regardless.
3. French Dip Sandwiches with Caramelized Onion
It’s the day after the holidays, and you’ve got an abundance of leftover London broil. Before you eat it as it is, you should try making these mini sandwiches.
The London broil is seasoned to perfection, put in a toasted buttery bun, and topped with mildly sweet Havarti cheese as well as intensely sweet caramelized onions.
All of this mouth-watering goodness is served with a savory, tangy, and sweet au jus that you can dip the sandwiches in.
I could eat this every week and never get sick of it, especially if I mixed it up with some lovely sides!
4. Garlic Butter Steak Bites
While you can serve these steak bites as an appetizer or as part of the main course, I think they’re best as a high-protein flavorful weekend breakfast.
All you need to do is cut the leftover London broil into small pieces and fry them in butter.
Cook the garlic in the butter and fat from the meat, then remove from the heat and return the steak bites to the skillet to coat them with the garlic-infused butter.
Just thinking about these garlicky, buttery bites makes my mouth water.
5. Leftover Beef Pot Pie
This leftover beef pot pie is the epitome of a hearty comfort-food dish. The filling is chock-full of melt-in-your-mouth tender meat and veggies, then topped with a buttery, crisp pie crust.
It takes a couple of hours to finish, but you only need to use one pot.
The majority of the time is spent baking the pie and using leftovers speeds up the process.
Everyone will ask for a second helping of food, so the time spent cooking is well worth it.
6. Seared Steak Poke Bowl
Do you want to add some international flavor and color to your diet?
This seared steak poke bowl deviates from the traditional poke bowl by replacing the raw salmon with tender London broil.
The meat is cut into cubes and seared, then added to a bowl of rice, colorful veggies, an avocado, and caramelized pineapple slices.
Then, it’s all topped off with a mildly spicy, garlicky dressing.
Diet food has never tasted so good!
7. Leftover London Broil Stroganoff
You simply can’t have leftover London broil and not make stroganoff.
I know what you’re thinking!
While stroganoff may sound complicated, this recipe is easy to make and has familiar flavors.
This Russian delicacy is made with savory beef, umami mushrooms, and a rich, creamy gravy-like sauce.
The London broil adds a beefy flavor and tender chew to this dish, making it more hearty and cozy.
This stroganoff is so delicious that you can eat it with a spoon!
8. Beef with Broccoli
If you’re looking for a quick, simple but nutritious snack, this recipe is for you.
Even if this dish is simple, its flavor profile is anything but simple.
The Asian-inspired flavors of the soy sauce, brown sugar, and ground ginger cut through the vegetal, slightly bitter flavor of the broccoli.
You can enjoy this dish as a quick lunch on its own or create a full dinner by pairing it with a bowl of white rice.
9. London Broil Steak Salad
After a heavy dinner, I prefer to keep it light the next day, even if I’m using leftovers.
The succulent, tender London broil will elevate even the simplest of salads. All you need is a bed of greens, cherry tomatoes, and some radish slices.
If you want to keep this meal as healthy as possible, you can skip the dressing entirely.
The fats from the meat and olive oil, mixed with the seasoning, will give the salad a simple yet wonderful flavor.
10. Chili Lime Leftover London Broil Tacos
If you’re stumped on what to do with leftover London broil, try these chili lime leftover London broil tacos! They’re zesty and delicious!
Start by heating leftover London broil strips in a skillet with chili powder, ground cumin, salt, pepper, dried oregano, minced garlic, and lime juice.
Once the meat has soaked all the flavors, take it off the heat and let it rest for five to 10 minutes.
Then, fill the corn tortillas with a few strips of meat, pico de gallo, and chopped-up corn.
Lastly, drizzle the tacos with the chili lime sauce that you used to reheat the meat.
11. Philly Cheesesteak Pasta
You’ve most likely had a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but have you ever tried Philly cheesesteak pasta?
Well, if you’ve run out of leftover London broil ideas, you should give this recipe a go!
It’s essentially the same idea, except instead of stuffing the savory meat, sweet, grilled vegetables, and melty cheese into a bun, you toss them through pasta.
12. Crockpot Vegetable Beef Soup
Are you looking for a hearty meal that requires little preparation for cold nights?
This crockpot vegetable beef soup is packed with protein from the leftover London broil and full of warming, nutritious vegetables.
The best part?

You wouldn’t even have to reheat the leftover London broil. Just add the slices to the soup a few minutes before serving.
Best Ways to Store and Reheat Leftover London Broil
London broil, like any piece of meat, spoils more easily and quickly than other foods.
However, if properly stored, London broil can stay fresh and safe to eat for an extended period.
Storing London Broil in the Refrigerator
Wrap the leftover London broil in freezer paper before placing it in Ziploc freezer bags, making sure to remove as much air as possible.
This method keeps the meat from oxidizing and spoiling.
Typically, refrigerated London broil can last three to five days.
If you won’t be using your leftovers during that time, it’s best to freeze the London broil.
Storing London Broil in the Freezer
To freeze leftover London broil, wrap it in freezer paper and place it in Ziploc freezer bags, just as you would store refrigerated London broil.
In addition to preventing oxidation and spoilage, this method will also prevent the meat’s water content from crystallizing.
If properly stored, the London broil can be kept in the freezer for six to 12 months.
After six months, frozen London broil becomes more prone to freezer burn. It may also lose most of its texture and moisture.
Reheating Leftover London Broil
There are three ways you can reheat London broil:
- Microwave for 60 seconds, then at 15-second intervals until the meat is hot all the way through. Place a glass of water to keep the London broil from drying out
- Preheat the oven to 350°F, then place the London broil on a baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and cover with foil for 10 minutes
- Warm sliced London broil with melted butter in a skillet over medium to low heat. Flip slices every 30 seconds or so
