I've always had to be creative when getting my family to eat vegetables, so I decided to make stuffed zucchini using the pizza flavors that everyone loves. It worked! We like to include sausage for a main dish but it could be a meatless side dish, too. —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
These tender sirloin strips from Joe Varga of Collingswood, New Jersey are marinated in a soy sauce mixture that gives them a wonderful Asian flavor. For a more ethnic version, you could use Japanese rice wine (sake). The beef strips can also be grilled.
“I’ve been making this wonderfully satisfying dish for my family for some 15 years now,“ writes Susan Tannahill from her home in Westford, Massachusetts. “It’s low in calories, full of flavor and veggies—and always brings me raves.“
"Chicken is my family's favorite meat, whether it's roasted, barbecued or whatever," says Susan Post from Baltimore, Ontario. "I make these skewered chicken strips often, especially during the summer months. They're popular at our annual family picnic, too."
Says Rick Fleishman from Beverly Hills, California, “Even my 17-year-old likes this turkey dish, and she’s a picky eater! There’s a minimum of fat, and it’s delicious and inexpensive for weeknight dining.”
This easy-to-prepare dish is a favorite with Charlene Cronin's family. "We like the honey-mustard sauce so much, I make a double batch and keep some in the fridge to use as a dressing," she reports from Kenner, Louisiana.
