You can tweak this versatile dish to match your taste and budget preference. Save money by substituting flank steak for skirt steak when it’s on sale. If you don’t care for peppery arugula, or your grocery store doesn’t have it in stock, use romaine, spinach or mixed greens.

Leftover: Steak, chicken or pork
If you don’t have time to cook a skirt steak, leftover steak tastes just as great. Chicken or pork would be delicious in this recipe as well.
