Our family was poor when I was growing up in Germany, so we ate garden vegetables for many weekday meals. When Mother made meat for a Sunday dinner, it was a terrific treat. My favorite is this tender beef dish, which gets great flavor from Dijon mustard.

This is one of my favorite recipes. It features sirloin strips covered in a rich sour cream sauce with hints of caraway, mustard and tomato. It's a mouthwatering main dish for two people.—Robert Foust, Indianapolis, Indiana
Meet the Cook: When I hear "meat and potatoes", this is the recipe that immediately comes to mind. I've made it for years, and everyone who's tried it has liked it. Most often, friends comment on its heartiness and on its combination of tastes.

A special marinade gives the meat in these fajitas outstanding flavor that's always a hit with my family. It's a fun and satisfying summer main dish using garden-fresh peppers and onions.

Meet the Cook: When I prepare this dish for my husband and me (we're retired with two children, both grown, and two grandchildren), I always serve rolls or bread to dip in the sauce. We enjoy it to the last drop! Along with the Swiss steak, we like to have coleslaw or sliced cucumbers mixed with sour cream.

With tasty tender slices of beef and fresh colorful vegetables, this mouthwatering stir-fry was designated "a keeper" by my husband the first time I made it. He loves the beef and asparagus, and I appreciate how quick it is to make.—JoLynn Hill, Roosevelt, Utah
Round steak is economical and delicious. That's why I was thrilled to find the recipe for this comforting meal-in-one casserole. With a salad and rolls, it's an inexpensive, hearty dinner.
-Kelly Hardgrave, Hartman, Arkansas
I was really glad to find this recipe since it's a great way to use round steak and it picks up fabulous flavor from one of my favorite herbs - tarragon. I am a homemaker with three children and enjoy cooking tasty dinners like this one for my family.
