When you're facing off with a fridge full of leftovers, a casserole is the ideal solution. The recipe below is a quick and easy way to turn leftover rice and veggies into a new, exciting main dish. The secret is an easy homemade teriyaki sauce that lends loads of flavor and moisture to the leftover rice. The result has all of the flavor of fried rice with a fraction of the fat.
Leftover rice is perfect for making fried rice or a rice casserole like this one, as a few days in the fridge dries it out, leaving it primed to soak up all the flavors of the sauce. The sauce also lends tons of flavor to the steak, which should be cooked quickly on the stovetop and then just crisped up under the broiler to keep it nice and tender.
