This is a great way to use up small amounts of leftover meat and veggies. (If you have enough leftover rice, then it's a real dollar-stretcher!) Depending on what I have in fridge, it's a little different each time I make it. It seems that no matter what combination of meats and veggies I use, if it is eaten with chop sticks, the kids love it!
