My sister, who has always had a knack for tossing spices and ingredients together, introduced this pork tenderloin dish to our family at a barbecue she hosted. She worked at the ingredients until she came up with a recipe she could share with all of us. It's a healthy alternative to steak, easy to prepare, and can be made ahead of time. —Lisa Peters, Dewitt, New York
My family enjoys this turkey because it cooks up tender, tasty and golden-brown. Build up taste by marinating the meat, then grill it to add that tempting barbecued flavor. &mdashKen Churches, Kailua-Kona, HI
This salsa recipe is great not only with salmon, but also grilled chicken breasts and barbecued shrimp kabobs. The only fresh ingredient not available in my son's garden was the avocado! Make a double batch of the salsa to serve with crisp tortilla chips. —Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
Could fail-proof, finger-lickin’ good chicken be any easier than this? Gwen Hannibal from Odell, Illinois shares a 3-ingredient recipe that’s simply delicious and so full of flavor, you’ll be tempted to double it even without “company” coming!
TIP: Use leftover french-fried onions to dress up green beans or add to sour cream for topping baked potatoes later.
“Returning home after 20 years as a missionary in the Philippines, I’ve tried to make food like we had there and came up with these flavorful strips. This recipe became a family favorite and is often requested at potlucks!”
