If you love steak but aren’t keen on the heaviness of a full intact cut of beef, you will love shaved steak recipes! Shaved steak can be made from any cut of beef like Ribeye, flank, or skirt steak. Ribeye is the top choice, as far as quality goes, but it’s pricey. Either way, this thinly sliced beef is delicious in many recipe ideas like Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches or Chimichurri Flatbread!

You can buy pre-shaved steak from the butcher or make your own. To shave steak it’s best to freeze the meat a little (not frozen solid) and shave it into 1/8-inch thick strips using a sharp knife. This way, with each bite it will easily pull apart when you’re eating it! My favorite recipes on this list are the tostadas, gyros, soup quesadillas, and pasta!

If you don’t want to make those you can try Quick Skillet Steak with Onions and Mushroom, Weight Watchers Shaved Steak Fajitas, or Copycat McDonald’s Steak Egg and Cheese Bagel. Whichever recipe you choose to make from this list, you won’t be disappointed. They’re affordable, quick and easy, and full of flavor. So get ready to sear some steak!
