Creamy Beef and Onions Recipe

If your family leans toward beef recipes, give this one from Jennifer Rahe a try. Her stick-to-your-ribs mainstay gets its tang from a low-fat sauce of yogurt and gravy. "Add a tossed salad and a basket of biscuits for a complete meal," she suggests from St. Cloud, Minnesota.
