I have about 3 nice pieces of steak left over and would like to make something with them, any suggestions?

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!
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.
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.
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.
Stir fry. That's what I do we a lot of left over meat.
Chinese stir fry idea sounds good. Or how about slicing it thin, stir fry it with some onions, etc. and put it in a wrap with something like barbeque or steak sauce.
Cut thin and in small strips,add beef broth to cover, add celery, carrots, onions and some soya sauce boil until vegetables are done and thicken with corn starch and water. Serve over rice or chow mein noodles.
Chop into small pieces and heat in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil, salsa, and taco seasonings (chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin). Use to make quesadillas!
I cut the cooked steak (or leftover roast) up in to bite size pieces and slice some taters. Fry the taters in shortening in a large skillet sprinkling them with garlic salt to your liking on each side while they're cooking. Once the taters are cooked and lightly browned, drain the shortening, add the steak, add just a tiny bit more garlic salt, stir and turn all until steak is warm. Quick, easy and yummy :-)
