I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Steak Teriyaki Wraps

Very good & easy to make.   This would be even good & lower calorie without the wrap.  It's also very good served over rice.  If you want to make it quicker, buy pre-made teriyaki sauce.
