  • Storage: Store any leftover beef with garlic sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Leftovers: Beef with Garlic sauce is best eaten right away, but if stored properly can last at least 3 days in the refrigerated.
  • Sometimes I like to add a sprinkle of crushed red peppers or sesame seeds to my final dish if I have them!
