Meet the Cook: When I prepare this dish for my husband and me (we're retired with two children, both grown, and two grandchildren), I always serve rolls or bread to dip in the sauce. We enjoy it to the last drop! Along with the Swiss steak, we like to have coleslaw or sliced cucumbers mixed with sour cream.

I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl growing up in the Southwest. When friends call to ask me for new recipes to try, I suggest these flavorful fajitas. It's wonderful to put the beef in the slow cooker before church and come home to a hot delicious main dish.

With tasty tender slices of beef and fresh colorful vegetables, this mouthwatering stir-fry was designated "a keeper" by my husband the first time I made it. He loves the beef and asparagus, and I appreciate how quick it is to make.—JoLynn Hill, Roosevelt, Utah
Round steak is economical and delicious. That's why I was thrilled to find the recipe for this comforting meal-in-one casserole. With a salad and rolls, it's an inexpensive, hearty dinner.

I was really glad to find this recipe since it's a great way to use round steak and it picks up fabulous flavor from one of my favorite herbs - tarragon. I am a homemaker with three children and enjoy cooking tasty dinners like this one for my family.

This down-home recipe reminds me of my mother, who was raised in the South. It calls for cubed steak instead of round steak, so there's no need to pound the meat. I just dip and coat the beef, then cook it in my cast-iron skillet.

I once knew a nun who cooked the best marinated steaks. I found this recipe in my quest to fix steaks as good as hers. This delicious versatile meat makes a special holiday main dish or a super camping supper.

This recipe was inspired by my love of spicy flavors and light, nutritious entrees. The pretty salad has an appealing variety of textures. I make it year-round because it's fast and easy to prepare after a long day at work.

Some days I have little time to make a hearty meal for my "meat-and-potatoes" family. That's why I appreciate this juicy peppery steak. It has a down-home taste and requires no more than minutes to put together!
