Get creative with Memorial Day leftovers

If you ended up with too much food after yesterday's holiday, help is on the way. Chef Mike Goldsmith of Joe's Midnight Run has a few ideas with all that leftover steak.    

After Memorial Day celebrations, how can we use our leftovers to make a new meal?

  •     Light and simple for summer
  •     Other grilled meats can be substituted for the steak if that's what you have around

What makes Joe's Midnight Run's dishes so unique? 

  •     Everything is cooked in a wood-fired oven. We do not have any burners in the kitchen.
  •     We have to get creative with the adaptations of dishes to work with the wood-fired oven
  •     We even do some awesome wood-fired dishes for herbivores! 
  •     Joe's Midnight Run used to be a staple drive-in liquor store in Phoenix. In honor of the history, we offer bottles of wine and 40-ounce beer to-go!
  •     We also have a great wood-fired brunch menu available on Saturdays and Sundays.
  •     Or, if you're a night owl, our full kitchen is open until 2 a.m. every night.
