Asian Beef and Cauliflower Stew Recipe

Meet the Cook: Next to hamburger, round steak probably is the most frequent dinner "guest" at our place! I'm always experimenting with recipes, changing them to fit our tastes...this one's easy and good. Our little town has a post office, a cafe, two gas stations and two country stores. My husband and I have a pair of sons, 13 and 9, and a daughter, 7. I work part-time in the cafeteria at their school (it's small, with only about 100 students or so) helping prepare lunch. -Deborah Cole, Wolf Creek, Oregon
