Savory ideas for leftover rice?

I feel kind of silly posting this question, but does anyone have good ideas for savory dishes involving leftover rice?

I have a favorite local Brazilian takeout joint that likes to serve dishes on heaping beds of rice -- like other places might serve on a bed of lettuce. So I end up with several cups of leftover rice that I don't know what to do with. It's usually got some meat juices mixed in, so desserts aren't a great option.

Fried rice is probably not my best bet, since the grains are really separate, and I seem to always screw it up anyway.

Any more creative thoughts? I'd really welcome them.
