Sirloin Strips over Rice Recipe

“I found this recipe in a movie magazine some 20 years ago," recalls Karen Dunn of Kansas City, Missouri. "It was the favorite of some male star, but I don’t remember whom. Its great flavor and the fact that leftovers just get better have made it a family favorite!”
