How do you reheat leftovers without a microwave?

I hate using the microwave and how it leaves some food mussy or solid as a rock.Any other methods for rehating like a steak and cheese sub?

  • For a sub, the oven is best. I wrap foil around it to start the reheat and then open the foil the last 5 minutes. Take out the lettuce etc, of course. :)

  • The oven or your broiler.
    Sorry for my giggle but microwave ovens didn't exist until I was in my 20's in the early to mid 80's.

  • Wrap it in foil and put in a medium oven (350*f) for about 10-20 min, depending on the size. If there's cheese on the top (as opposed to throughout), you can tent the top of the foil so it doesn't peel it off when you open it.

    You can also run it under the broiler for a couple minutes, but don't put the rack too close, or the bottom of the meat will still be cold while the top is getting burnt. About 6-8 inches from the heat is good, and it should take about 3-4 min total.

  • My dad used to do this with a leftover steak or pork chop, before there were microwaves. He would wrap it in foil (sometimes). He would get a skillet or pan and we had a little rack that he could put in the pan to keep the food out of the water. Then he would put a little water in the pan and heat it up. Took about 3-5 minutes and kept the meat moist.

  • if it isn't too difficult, you could take out the steak and heat it in a skillet - maybe even add some onion and mushrooms. Put the bun in the oven or toaster oven just to heat to take off the coldness from being in the fridge. Put it back together and YUM!!!
