Shaved steak can be used in a variety of recipes, from simple sandwiches to gourmet entrees, tacos, pastas and fajitas. Here are 39 dinner ideas with shaved steak to try:

1. Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich 

The most popular way we see and use shaved beef is in a Cheesesteak sandwich. A simple classic sandwich with quick-cooked shaved beef tossed with seasoning salt in a large skillet over medium-high heat, Worcestershire sauce and a little hot sauce too.

Topped with caramelized onions and if desired, mushrooms and peppers and topped with provolone cheese, tucked into a grilled hoagie roll. If you want to go super authentic, you will enjoy it with cheese whiz or “wit wiz” as the locals say – personally I love real cheese!

Frequently Asked Questions

What cuts of beef are commonly used for shaved steak?

Shaved steak is typically made from tender cuts of beef, such as ribeye, sirloin, or top round. These cuts have a good balance of marbling and tenderness, which makes them ideal for quick cooking and results in a flavorful and tender shaved steak.

How is shaved steak different from other beef cuts?

Shaved steak stands out from other beef cuts due to its thin slicing. Unlike traditional thick steaks, shaved steak is sliced thinly, allowing it to cook quickly and absorb flavors more effectively. This feature makes it an excellent choice for cheesesteaks, wraps, and stir-fries.

How should I cook shaved steak?

Shaved steak is best cooked quickly over high heat to retain its tenderness and juiciness. Popular cooking methods include pan-frying, grilling, stir-frying or fry it up on your Blackstone griddle. Season the meat with your preferred spices and cook it quickly to achieve a delicious result.
Additionally, shaved steak can be added to various recipes, such as sandwiches and salads, without cooking it separately, as it will cook when incorporated into the dish’s preparation process.

Where can I find shaved steak?

Shaved steak can be found at most grocery stores and butcher shops. Look for it in the meat section, where it may be labeled as “beef shavings” “shaved beef” or “thinly sliced beef.” You can also ask your butcher to shave a ribeye or sirloin steak for you.

Can I shave my own steak?

Yes, but it’s much harder unless you own a restaurant-quality meat slicer. If you prefer to shave your steak, follow these simple steps. 

For cube or round steak, roll and wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for 20 to 30 minutes, then using a sharp knife, slice very thin, trying to “chip” away at the steak.

If using sirloin steak or ribeye more traditional cuts for shaved steak, wrap the steak well and freeze for 30 minutes (you don’t want it frozen solid), then using a sharp knife, shave or slice the steak as thinly as possible.

What is Trader Joe’s shaved beef?

Trader Joe’s shaved beef is a pre-packaged version of shaved steak at Trader Joe’s grocery stores. The beef is thinly sliced and comes in a 16-ounce package. It is made from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef and is free from antibiotics and added hormones.

Trader Joe’s shaved beef is a convenient option for those who want to save time on meal prep and it’s my favorite; full of flavor, lightly marbled. Out of all the shaved steak out there, I believe Trader Joe’s has the best options.
