Leftover Steak Fried Rice

Turn your leftover steak and rice into quick and easy, yet flavorful dinner in minutes.


  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, or vegetable oil
  • 4 oz sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups leftover cooked rice, Note 1
  • ½ lb leftover steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup 4oz frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2-3 teaspoons sesame oil


  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat olive oil.
  • Once oil is shimmering, add mushrooms and zucchini. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned and softened.
  • Stir in minced garlic.
  • Push the vegetables to the side, making an empty center in the pan.
  • Add eggs and scramble until mostly cooked. Then mix with the rest of the vegetables.
  • Add rice and stir everything and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add sliced steak and peas.
  • Stir in the soy sauce and sesame oil.
  • Mix and cook until everything is heated though. Serve immediately.


Note 1: Make sure to use 3 cups of cooked cold rice, preferably long grain rice, like jasmine rice. Leftover cooked rice is best for fried rice, because it has less moisture.
