This is a wonderful steak to share with friends and family. They’ll rave about the sizzling grilled flank steak served with flavorful jalapeno and tomato salsa and couscous. —Yvonne Starlin, Hermitage, Tennessee
"Having the seasonings mixed up in advance makes stirring up a batch of chili a breeze," suggests Mary Henderson of Opelika, Alabama. "It's a bold but pleasant blend. I like the round steak and ground beef combination."
There's just enough ginger, chili powder and garlic powder in the sauce to spark the taste of this enjoyable steak specialty. For variety, you can substitute chicken or pork for the sirloin. If I'm in a hurry or don't have fresh vegetables on hand, I'll reach for two bags of frozen stir-fry vegetables instead.
A distinctive peanut sauce complements this colorful combination of tender sirloin strips, cauliflower, carrots, broccoli and mushrooms. I like to dish it up over spaghetti, but you could also use fried noodles.—Janice Fehr,
“I first tried this recipe after reading a similar one in a medical magazine in my doctor's office," says Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "It's easy, colorful, and the basting helps keep the kabobs juicy and tender.”
Begin any meal with savory Sirloin in Wine Sauce from Barbara Kamm of Wilmington, Delaware. “This recipe is a family favorite as well as a great, easy company dish,” says Barbara. The tender sirloin is coated in a hearty mushroom-wine sauce, and is fantastic over pasta.
Meet the Cook: My husband and I lived for 11 years in the Arctic, where there was very little fresh produce and I had to order non-perishable groceries for a year ahead of time. This hearty soup - a meal in itself served with warm rolls - became a staple in our diet because it requires ingredients I could easily find.

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.

"Our family loves Mexican food, and this is one of our favorites," says Twila Burkholder from Middleburg, Pennsylvania. The slow cooker tenderizes the flank steak for these filling fajitas, which have just the right amount of spice.
