Recipe Spotlight

This is one of my favorite entrees for two. I found this tender meat loaf recipe in a supermarket’s cookbook almost 20 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since. Sometimes I substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef or make extra loaves to freeze for later meals. –Lois Kinneberg, Phoenix, Arizona

Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least two hours or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”

Served with green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and seven-layer salad, this is the main course at my family's annual Christmas gathering. Even those who aren't fond of meat comment on its tenderness and flavor. Likely, since garlic goes well with everything, the sauce'd be good with pork or poultry besides. My husband and I have a 16-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter. -Beth Taylor, Chapin, South Carolina

Braciole

In our family Braciole was served as a special treat for birthdays and holidays. It was Grandma’s specialty and the preparation was time consuming. When the meat and sauce were fully cooked, Grandma called us into the kitchen to watch her lift the big roll from the sauce to the cutting board to slice it. The pinwheels of meat, laid side by side on the platter, topped with Grandma’s delicious sauce, made a colorful picture.
