Leftover Prime Rib Burritos Recipe
Oh, how I love a really great steak burrito! These fully loaded burritos are made even better with the tender, perfectly medium-rare slices of prime rib!
There is a restaurant chain that is direly lacking here in the Midwest, leaving me craving the yummy goodness that Baja Fresh always offers. However, I can finally say that my homemade burritos are better than any I’ve ever enjoyed at Baja or my favorite Mexican food restaurants!
Since your prime rib is already cooked, these burritos come together very quickly for a better-than-restaurant quality dinner at home!! Plus, all of the fantastic flavor from your prime rib seasoning is already in place on the beef ( you used my dry rub, right?! ).

Leftover Prime Rib Burritos
- 1/2 lb prime rib roast (sliced)
- 1 cup white rice (cooked - or brown rice)
- 8 oz black beans (8 oz can - drained and rinsed)
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese (shredded - or a combination with Monterey Jack or use Colby Jack)
- 1/4 cup pico de gallo (see recipe)
- 1/4 cup guacamole (see recipe)
- 4 flour tortillas (8-inch tortillas)
- 1 lime (optional)
- 1/4 cup cilantro (optional - fresh, chopped)
Leftover Prime Rib Burritos
- Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F (121 degrees C).
- Slice your leftover prime rib portion into thin strips or bite-sized pieces. Place the prime rib portion into a sheet of aluminum foil to make a pouch around the cut beef. For added moisture, you can drizzle a bit of beef broth over the prime rib slices before sealing the aluminum foil pouch.
- Place your aluminum foil pouch with the prime rib in the preheated oven and warm the leftover pieces for 5-10 minutes. *Depending on how warm you want the beef. If you opt to grill your burrito, the lower warming time should work nicely.
- Optional - Mix the cooked rice with the juice (and lime zest, if desired) from one lime and the chopped cilantro. Mix and set aside.
- Heat the drained and rinsed black beans until warmed, either in the microwave or in a skillet. Heat the skillet with a drizzle of olive oil to medium heat, then cook the beans until warm.
- Heat each tortilla before assembling the burritos. Microwave the tortillas for 15 seconds each or warm them for 30 seconds per side in a skillet over medium heat.
- Layer the fillings in a line down the center of each tortilla, portioning the fillings out equally between the four tortillas.
- Roll the burritos by folding up the opposite ends (at the ends of the filling), then tucking up the bottom around the fillings and the folded tortilla ends. Continue tucking tightly as you roll the burrito to enclose the fillings.
Grilled Prime Rib Burritos
- Bring a large skillet to medium-high heat and coat lightly with cooking oil or non-stick cooking spray.
- Place each burrito, seam side down, and cook for about one minute or until lightly golden brown. Flip and cook the opposite side (and edges too if desired).
