With meat, potatoes and other vegetables, this rich-tasting soup is really a meal in one. Process cheese sauce makes it taste like a cheeseburger. I serve this soup with a nice crusty loaf of French bread. - Ione Sander, Carlton, Minnesota
This thick zippy stew from Amy Short of Lesage, West Virginia is loaded with familiar ingredients, such as ground beef, tomatoes, kidney beans and chili beans. Chili powder and green chilies season it just right.
Meet the Cook: It seems there aren't many beef roasts that are both extra-special and extra-easy. This one is, though. There have been many Sundays when I've put it in the oven as we're walking out the door to go to church and had no trouble getting it on the table right around noon.
Over the years, many men have requested that I copy the recipe for their wives. "I love the gravy!" they'll say.
My husband's a farmer, and we have five children - all of them now grown.
This traditional lasagna is a real crowd-pleaser. With ground beef, Italian sausage, a from-scratch tomato sauce and a rich cheese sauce, it's hearty and delicious. I get lots of compliments when I put together and share this wonderful dish.—Donna Patterson, Davenport, Iowa
Most people expect a certain flavor when they bite into a Swiss steak, so this dish is a real surprise! It is a wonderful alternative to regular Swiss steak. My family really likes Mexican food, and this is one of their favorites.
