After driving my family crazy trying new recipes, I always return to this standby. These moist, comforting pork chops come out great every time. We love the rich gravy over the chops and mashed potatoes.

This down-home recipe reminds me of my mother, who was raised in the South. It calls for cubed steak instead of round steak, so there's no need to pound the meat. I just dip and coat the beef, then cook it in my cast-iron skillet.

"I came up with this recipe as a quick dinner for a finicky husband who's not too fond of pork chops," writes Amy Radyshewsky from Great Falls, Montana. "But these are so tender and good, he gives them a thumbs up!"
Reports Margery Bryan of Royal City, Washington, "This is one of the best and easiest meals I've ever made. It has only four ingredients, and they all go into the pot at once. The meat is nicely seasoned and makes its own gravy-it tastes wonderful when you serve it over mashed potatoes."
Make your Thanksgiving or other special-occasion dinner easy with this can't-miss recipe. Use the drippings from your roasted turkey, and the gravy is done in just 20 minutes. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah
This meaty main course, served with a mouthwatering mushroom gravy, is a snap to assemble and pop in the oven. "It is my husband's favorite," says Mrs. Burgess Marshbanks from her home in Buies Creek, North Carolina.
It's 15 years now I've been married to a man who loves beef. For a long time, though, I was reluctant to cook a roast for fear of ruining a nice cut of meat. Finally, I started buying roasts on sale and experimenting. This recipe was the result...now, my husband doesn't want a roast - beef or pork - any other way. Keith and I are the parents of a 13-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy.
