Something I came up with when staring at leftovers in the fridge. The steak can be flank, or sirloin, or leftover roast beef. The vegies and rice are just examples, use your own according to taste, i.e. no rice, or peas, cabbage, broccoli, etc. Just make sure they are cooked first. Very versatile, so have fun.
