My family came to America from Germany in the late 1950's and brought with them many wonderful recipes like this one. This particular dish reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen and waiting for her delicious dinners.
Years ago, when bakeries in my Midwestern hometown made pasties, people scrambled to get there before they were all gone. Now I make my own...filled with meat, potatoes and vegetables, they make a complete meal and are great for picnics or potlucks. —Gayle Lewis
A marinade featuring lemon and basil makes this cut of beef tender and delicious. The recipe is from Evelyn Robbins of Norridgewock, Maine, who relates, "I do all the preparation, and my husband does the grilling—we make quite a team!"
Diane Hixon's elegant slow-cooked meal is worthy of company. "I like to make it on special occasions," she writes from Niceville, Florida. "The tender steak cuts easily into appetizing spirals for serving, and extra stuffing cooks conveniently in a foil packet on top of the steak."
Your guests will certainly be impressed when you serve Wellingtons. Besides being a wonderful, special entree, it is so easy on the cook. Most of it can be prepared a day ahead and it bakes in 20 minutes.—Joyce Moynihan, Lakeville, Minnesota
My husband and I both love the classic combination of beef and horseradish. He asks me to make this for dinner often, and I'm always happy to. Try serving with baked potatoes as a side.—Mary Lou Cook, Welches, Oregon
I've been using this recipe since I was married in 1952. My husband let me know early on in our marriage that this dish was one of his favorites, so I still make it often. I think most men like it because of the hearty portions of meat and noodles.
"This is one of my husband's favorite dishes," relates Carmen Edwards of Midland, Texas. "I like it because it has meat and vegetables, and the flavors work so well together. Sometimes we serve it over rice and add steamed asparagus or a salad for a great meal."
These juicy tenderloin steaks, lightly crusted with blue cheese and bread crumbs, are special enough for holiday dining. When drizzled with wine sauce, the beef melts in your mouth. —Tiffany Vancil, San Diego, California
