Sweet caramelized onions add great flavor to these rosemary-rubbed steaks. Serve them with baked potatoes and a Caesar salad. Or complement the entree with cooked carrot sticks and apple pie a la mode.
“I found this wonderful, quick recipe in a book years ago,” recalls Janet Singleton in Bellevue, Ohio. “It’s been a favorite for special occasions ever since! I like to serve it with twice-baked potatoes and a spinach salad.”
Loaded with veggies and laced with a tasty herb dressing, this satisfying, grilled-steak salad from our Test Kitchen boasts an easygoing elegance. Pair it with a crusty loaf of bread and red wine or iced tea for patio dinner or picnic.
This hearty salad always satisfies my hungry family. For a change of pace, substitute pork loin or poultry for the steak. Southwestern-style dressing or a sour cream-avocado-cheese mix can also be substituted for the salsa as the topping.—Leah Carrell, Quitman, Texas
Meet the Cook: This is a nice recipe to whip up when you come home from church. I adapted it from one I saw in an old cookbook. It's a little different way to use herbs.

"My husband, Wayne, asks for this meat loaf all the time," reports Edna Lauderdale of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "We like it spicy, so we use hot sausage rather than mild. Slices are terrific drizzled with ketchup, served with mashed potatoes and gravy, or in meat loaf sandwiches the next day."
When I was a Cub Scout den mother and Girl Scout leader years ago, many youngsters would ask to stay for dinner when they heard I was serving these burgers. Friends and family still ask for them. - Eleanor Davidson, Pittsboro, North Carolina
