Katie Goble of Valparaiso, Indiana shares this hearty meat-and-potatoes meal. Round steak is slow-simmered until tender and smothered with a gravy that’s packed with colorful peppers. TIP: “You can serve this with rice instead of mashed potatoes."
A quick marinade lends a bit of sweetness to tender beef strips in this enticing meal-in-one from our Test Kitchen. Each generous serving also features a bevy of vegetables lightly coated in a delightful sauce.
“This steak and pasta dish combines flavors my family loves with the convenience I love,” says Veronica Callaghan of Glastonbury, Connecticut. “Adding fresh ingredients to a packaged mix results on great homemade taste.”
"I love this quick-and-easy stir-fry because everything but the cooking can be done in advance," writes Marian Johnson of Brawley, California. "It's great with sourdough bread and a fresh tomato and cucumber salad. Or, serve it with warm tortillas and hot sauce. The meat is easier to slice into nice even strips if it's partially frozen."
When I make these juicy steaks, I brush thin slices of potato with olive oil and grill them alongside the meat. I round out the meal with a spinach and red onion salad on the side and cheesecake for dessert.
