  • 1 lb leftover steak
  • 4 cups spring mix (or any lettuce you prefer)
  • 5 large radishes (sliced thinly)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

For the Balsamic Sauce:


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. I have my leftovers already sliced and ready to go. Allow then to warm up before grilling, Never grill cold meat. It should be left out 20 to 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  3. Place a cookie sheet or grill stone on the grill. Drizzle some olive oil on it. Drop the steak down and stir it around until it warms up. It's leftovers so it only takes a few minute. If you want to cook your steak fresh for this go to my Boneless Rib Steak Recipe to learn how I grilled mine to perfection.
  4. Pull off the grill with tongs and set aside.

For the Balsamic Sauce:

  1. You can cook this on the grill or indoors on the stove. Your call. I did mine on the grill.
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce and spices to a medium small saucepan. Cook over medium heat (direct) for about 1 to 2 minutes, allowing it to bubble it. Then reduce heat (move to indirect heat) and allow to simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Time cooked depends on how thin or thick you like your sauce. Add the butter and whisk until smooth.

Putting it together:

  1. Lay the salad greens down on a platter, toss radishes around over top. Lay thinly sliced beef over top. Drizzle with balsamic sauce.
  2. Serve with a big leftovers rule the world smile!
