But it’s time to quit sitting on shaved beef. 

Thinly-sliced steak makes so many wonderful dishes, like Philly cheesesteak, tacos, fajitas, and more.

It’s also super tender and easy to cook. Plus, it tastes amazing and it contains high levels of vitamin B12 and protein, so it’s pretty good for you. 

Although, some of these shredded beef recipes are much better for your soul than your body. 

Keep reading for 20 amazing shaved beef recipes! 

1. Mongolian Beef

This list starts well with one of my all-time favorite dishes, Mongolian beef. And really, what’s not to love? It’s sweet, savory, and super tasty. 

Each slice of beef is perfectly brown and crispy thanks to a little corn starch dusting, which thickens the delicious sauce.

Speaking of sauce, the beef is coated in umami-rich brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic sauce. Every bite is mouthwatering.  

Add some fresh scallions and serve it over rice with your favorite veggies! 

2. Cheesesteak Sandwich

This classic steak sandwich is nationally known for a reason. It’s meaty, cheesy, juicy, and seriously good for your soul. I

t’s great for game day or when you just need some good food.

This sandwich gets so much flavor from the glorious shredded beef.

It’s cooked in seasoning salt, Worcestershire, and hot sauce, so it’s bold and super savory. It’s delicious.

Then, you top it with caramelized onions and ooey-gooey provolone cheese. Serve it on a toasted sandwich roll, and you’re in business. 

3. Taco Shredded Beef

You may never go back to ground beef tacos after you’ve tried this recipe.

The beef is juicy and intensely flavorful. The key to this amazing beef lies in two elements.

First, it has a super easy-to-make yet delicious marinade.

It features brown sugar, coconut aminos, hot sauce, sesame oil, lime, and garlic. (Be sure to marinate for at least 1 hour.)

Second, you’ll want to grill the meat. Grilling adds so much flavor that’s hard to get in a pan. But, in a pinch, a frying pan will certainly work. 

Do you want to know the best part? You can use this meat for anything with a Tex-Mex feel like nachos or quesadillas. 

4. The Ultimate Instant Pot French Dip Sandwich

Want to know why this sandwich is called the ultimate? You go from having no sandwich to having a delicious one in 15 minutes.

It’s flavorful, juicy, and literally finger-licking good. 

5. Cheesy Shaved Beef Stuffed Baked Potatoes

This tasty dish is basically Philly cheesesteak baked potatoes, and I’m here for it.

You just shove a baked potato full of caramelized onions and shaved beef.

Then, you top it with cheese and broil it until it has become bubbly perfection. You’ll love it.

6. Philly Cheesesteak Recipe with Peppers and Onions

You’d be surprised at the number of variations you can find of this classic sandwich. This delicious recipe is just as tasty as the other one on this list. 

It has all the same important ingredients, including provolone cheese, a sturdy bread roll, and delicious shaved beef. 

This one has a few more veggies and a few fewer seasonings. It’s also a little less spicy. So, really it comes down to your personal preference. 

7. Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

If you thought I was done with the Philly cheesesteak recipes, you thought wrong.

This one channels the flavors of your favorite sandwich but has a lot less mess. 

Basically, it’s a fancier, more filling, more delicious mac ‘n’ cheese. The whole family will love it! It’s also a great option to bring to a potluck. 

8. Mini Steak Quesadillas with Mushrooms

These mini steak quesadillas are quick, easy, hearty, and absolutely delectable.

They feature juicy steak, tantalizing mushrooms, and lots of melted cheese in a crispy tortilla. 

And they’re ready in less than 30 minutes. You can’t beat that! 

Serve with salsa or pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream. YUM! 

9. Chili Cheesesteak Stew

This recipe is a game-changer. I mean, I love chili, but I might love this even more.

First, it has delicious, thinly-shaved sirloin. Sirloin is a super flavorful type of beef with lots of marbling. Yes, please! 

Then, it has the usual chili accouterments like tomato paste, beans, broth, and bold seasonings. 

But from there, it dives into a realm of awesomeness I’ve not had in chili. It has spicy adobo sauce, chipotle peppers, and a boatload of melted cheese.

10. Savory Beef and Onion Stir-Fry

If you want a really easy and tasty dish for dinner, this is it. It’s ready in just 15 minutes, with little effort. 

Simply saute the shaved beef and sliced onions in a sweet and savory soy-based sauce. Serve it over rice and enjoy! 

11. Healthy Beef and Broccoli

Skip the takeout and make this healthy Chinese food-inspired dish at home.

It’s ready in only 30 minutes and it’s a dinner your whole family will love. 

This dish features steak and broccoli stir-fried in a delicious sweet, spicy, and savory sauce. It has classic Asian flavors, so it’s best served with rice.

12. Tender Shaved Beef Fajitas

Almost every time I go to a Mexican restaurant, I will order steak fajitas.

There’s just something so appetizing about the very distinctive sizzle of a fajita pan.

Plus, you know, they taste great.

Luckily, they’re pretty simple to make at home and just as good.

The key to fajitas is to season the ingredients well and let everything char. Serve it with your favorite tortillas and sides. 

13. Korean Beef Bulgogi

Korean barbecue is super tasty, particularly beef bulgogi. Every bite will send your tastebuds on a delicious ride. 

The beef is juicy and tender, but some pieces get this delicious crust.

And the sauce is tantalizing. Sesame seeds add a little crunch that is to die for. 

This dish features ingredients like soy sauce, ginger, brown sugar, pears, garlic, and gochujang. It’s seriously yummy. 

14. Beef Stroganoff

If you want a hearty dinner, look no further.

The beef is juicy and tender and the sauce is creamy, tangy, and uber flavorful. It can’t be topped!

15. Chinese Beef Noodle Soup

Chinese soups are known for flavorful broth, tasty meats, lots of veggies, and noodles, too, of course! 

And this soup definitely does not disappoint in those areas. 

It’s light and healthy but super yummy. This soup features beef, daikon radish, mushrooms, greens, bamboo shoots, and noodles in a broth. 

Everything is seasoned to perfection. It’s fantastic. 

Don’t forget to slurp your noodles to show you love them! 

16. Sukiyaki Beef Udon

Speaking of slurpable noodles, this sukiyaki beef udon is absolutely delectable.

Sukiyaki is a Japanese hot pot, and you cook your meal right at the table.

This version features a rich broth of mirin, dashi, sake, and soy sauce. Seriously, it’s umami flavor at its finest. 

Add mushrooms, shaved beef, tofu, cabbage, carrots, onions, and the udon. It’s delicious and it’s interactive, so it’s great for a party! 

17. Chinese Spicy Shaved Beef Bites

Add a little spice to your evening with these scrumptious beef bites! The secret to this sublime dish is the marinade.

It’s salty, spicy, and rich with just a hint of sweetness for balance.

18. Keto Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

This keto recipe has all the flavors of your favorite cheesesteak. But it only has a fraction of the carbs. #winning

Each pepper is stuffed with layers of cheese, seasoned beef, and sauteed peppers.

A bit of mayonnaise and mustard add flavor and creaminess.  It’s filling and super tasty! 

19. Italian Cheesesteak Sandwiches

This delicious sandwich is not to be confused with Philly cheesesteak. Both are delicious, but this one has its own personality. 

The Italian cheesesteak has shaved beef, melty cheese, peppers, and onions, just like the Philly.

But this sandwich leans more toward your favorite pasta dishes. 

It has mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, and marinara sauce. Mama Mia, it’s good! 

20. Korean Beef Bibimbap (Mixed Rice Bowl)

If you love Asian rice bowls, give bibimbap a try! It’s delicious and nutritious, with many veggies, rice, and protein. 

This recipe calls for bulgogi beef, carrots, zucchini, spinach, and mung bean sprouts. There’s also rice, bulgogi beef, and a fried egg.

It’s sweet, salty, and has some fabulous textures. It’s divine.
