Meet the Cook: When I serve Italian Beef Roll-Ups, my family and friends tell me that I should open a restaurant. And this dish tastes even more delicious rewarmed!
I do a lot of cooking, especially now that we're retired. As a special treat, I like to bring dinner to our daughters (we have three) and their husbands.

“I found this recipe just about the time I was getting brave about using herbs and rubs to flavor meats,” recalls Karin Woodbury of Ocala, Florida. “My family loved the taste and it's been a favorite ever since.”
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.”
Sirloin steak and fresh vegetables take center stage in this showstopper from Pamela Brandal. "While I don't have much time to cook, I like to experiment with food," says the Park City, Illinois reader. "This quick dish is a favorite."
Fresh ginger and garlic season this mouthwatering mixture of beef strips, sweet peppers, romaine lettuce and crunchy water chestnuts. "My husband loves stir-fry," writes Katherine Prier of Conway, Missouri. "I like it, too, because it's quick, easy and cleanup is a breeze since everything cooks in one pan."—Katherine Prier, Conway, Missouri
Packed with Italian flavor, these mouthwatering cubed steaks from Jo Ann Honey of Longmont, Colorado are ready in no time, and cleanup is a breeze! “This is one of my favorite quick meals that’s fairly inexpensive and healthy,” says Jo Ann.
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
These classic kabobs are a hearty way to use up your garden harvest. At our house, everyone fixes their own skewers for an all-in-one dinner. I sometimes substitute venison for beef.

When spring comes to our house, out comes the grill! My husband does a great job cooking these steaks to perfection. They taste so terrific, we often have them once a week.—Sonja Kane, Wendell, North Carolina
