I had a bunch of leftovers in the fridge and decided I would give this a try and here is the result. I hope you like it!

Ingredients for Steak and Potato Cakes

Leftover steak

Leftover mashed potatoes

Leftover spicy mayo from this Fish Tacos recipe

Leftover guacamole

Leftover salsa

1/4 Cup of fresh cilantro (chopped)

One bottle of beer

Steps to Make Steak and Potato Cakes

Step One: Spray a skillet pan with cooking spray and form patties out of your leftover mashed potatoes.

Cook them over medium-high heat until they crisp up.

As they cook, continue to press down on them to flatten them out a bit.

Step Two: Cut up leftover steak into bite size pieces and add them with the potato cakes to a different skillet over medium-high heat.

Pour in the bottle of beer and bring the pan to a boil.

Then simmer until the potatoes are crisp on the outside. (This step is a tasty way to warm the steak back up without drying it out.)

Step Three: Chop up the fresh cilantro and take the guacamole, salsa, and spicy mayo out of the fridge. (Easy, right?)

Step Four: Assemble your steak and potato cakes! Place the potato cakes on a plate. Spread guacamole over them. Pile on the steak. Cover the steak with salsa and spicy mayo and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Step Five: Enjoy!
