What to do with leftover steak? I'm clueless, and I definitely do not want to throw it away.

I started making this when I was in my early 20's and it's about the only way I use leftover steak now. Cut the steak into bite sized cubes and peel and slice or dice the amount of potatoes to the amount of steak accordingly. Fry the potatoes in vegetable oil in a skillet sprinkling with garlic salt to taste.
Cook the potatoes until just golden, drain the oil, add the beef cubes and stir all until steak is heated through adding more garlic salt to taste if desired. It's quick, tasty and easy. I don't usually use ketchup (except to make cocktail sauce) but it certainly is tasty as a condiment for this dish :-)
I have about 3 nice pieces of steak left over and would like to make something with them, any suggestions?

Indian or Japanese or Thai curry, or any other nationalities' curries:
Cut up steak into tiny strips. Saute' in small amount of olive oil on low to medium heat setting, so it doesn't burn.
Add whatever curry you're up for a pre-mixed name brand spice found in a regular grocery store, or venture into Asian or Indian markets to locate native spices.
If you've never had curry, create your own by cutting up your own fresh, raw garlic, ginger, powdered turmeric, some chopped red peppers, and so on according to your preferences. Some countries' curries are made from a combination of 17 spices. No salt is necessary. Diagonally cut carrots, celery, green pepper, onion, and cabbage. Put your favorite veggies in one at a time, hardest, root vegetables in first, to lighter ones last. Add 3/4 cup hot water. Cover. Turn heat down to simmer. Make favorite rice while curry flavors mix together and veggies cook to taste.
Serve dish over the rice.
Steak salad. It it's not cooked I slice it into strips, season it with salt and either garlic or cajun seasoning, fry it quickly in a frying pan. Total time - about 5 minutes.
Serve over lettuce, cucumbers, tomato. Sprinkle with cheese. Add a little garlic bread and you're in heaven.
Cut in small pieces and brown in skillet. Add a chopped onion, a chopped green pepper and about 3 stalks of chopped celery. Add one can tomatoes and garlic and salt to taste. Simmer till vegs are tender. It may require another can of tomatoes or some water to keep it liquid. Serve over mashed potatoes. This is a recipe from my aunt's restaurant. We called it Swiss Steak.
Fajitas would be great or add to fried rice. Slice it thin, heat up in BBQ sauce and make a sandwich on a crusty roll. Or make an openfaced beef sandwich using a jar of beef gravy and mashed potatoes. It would be good in a chef's salad. Now I'm getting hungry!
Any good ideas how to use up some leftover cooked steak. We don't especially like it just warmed over. I just wondered if I could use in a recipe.
