How to store leftover Round Steak:

I store leftovers in a Rubbermaid storage container, in the refrigerator.

Reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, until desired temperature is achieved.

Leftovers can be safely stored for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

While uncooked Round Steak can be frozen, I have never tried freezing cooked round steak.

I made this tonight for my family and it was good. I didn’t shred the meat up after cooking because I tried a piece whole and liked it better that way. I served it over mashed potatoes and it was good 😊 will make again
