Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Using Leftovers: Cheesesteak Spinach Salad

9 WWPP Posted by 4 years ago 3 Comments

All the cheesy awesomeness of a Philly cheesesteak on a fresh bed of baby spinach. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? It was simply delicious and I didn’t even miss the ketchup! (I’m ketchup obsessed for those who don’t know.)

I make traditional cheesesteaks with leftover meat from the London broils I cooked, but with only 3 ounces of meat left from the one I made the other night, I didn’t have enough to make one for both The Husband and me.


Instead he ate some disgusting frozen mac & cheese (his favorite) and I made myself this amazing salad. It was so simple and filling! I used to make wraps or stuff pitas but now I have new go-to for any leftover beef.

Who needs bread when you have spinach?

Here’s what I did…

  • 1/4 of a large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 oz cooked London broil chopped
  • 1 oz fancy shredded Cheddar cheese blend
  • 2-3 cups fresh baby spinach

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Spray with non-stick spray and sauté the onion until it starts to brown and get a little translucent.

Add the peppers and continue to cook just until they soften and get a little charred.


Finally, add the steak.


Pile everything in the middle of the pan, top with the shredded cheese and cover until melted.


Adding a splash of water can help melt the cheese faster as it steams under the lid.

Slide the “Cheesesteak” on top of the baby spinach leaves and enjoy!

      Leftover steak has limited options, IMO, because the meat often ends up overcooked. But I love the sound of this idea!
