That sounds yummy. Just a word of warning to be careful with the rice
From the Food Standard Agency
"I've heard that reheating rice can cause food poisoning. Is this true?
It's true that you could get food poisoning from eating reheated rice. But it's not actually the reheating that's the problem – it's the way the rice has been stored before reheating.
Uncooked rice can contain spores of Bacillus cereus, bacteria that can cause food poisoning. When the rice is cooked, the spores can survive. Then, if the rice is left standing at room temperature, the spores will germinate into bacteria. These bacteria will multiply and may produce toxins (poisons) that cause vomiting or diarrhoea. Reheating the rice won't get rid of these toxins.
So, the longer cooked rice is left at room temperature, the more likely it is that bacteria, or the toxins they produce, could stop the rice being safe to eat.
It's best to serve rice when it has just been cooked. If that isn't possible, cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) and keep it in the fridge for no more than one day until reheating.
Remember that when you reheat any food, you should always check that it's steaming hot all the way through, and avoid reheating more than once."
I always re heat left over rice and have never had problems, but I do get it in the fridge as quickly as I can

Last night I cooked up 1 1/2 lbs of lean hamburger. I made them into hamburgers. I ate one and put the others in the frig. I also have left over rice. I like your idea. Will probably break one of them apart and make some kind of a stirfry.
Enjoy - sounded yummy.

I bought of four rather large pork steaks a little while ago. I blush to admit it now, but three of them I ate whole for dinners
(Sidebar: I for one am THRILLED that the trichenosis threat has been bred out of today's pork. It tastes SO much better when it's not cooked to death!)
I have one more, and I'm thawing it out for tonight's dinner. I'm going to cook it the same as the others (skillet sear, then finish to perfect mid-rare in the oven). I will then immediately cut it in half and put half in foil. I have some leftover brown rice from last night. Some night this week dinner will be pork fried rice. Which may even be subdivided into two or three lunches instead.
(Please let me know if I get boring with the tiny details.)
