THIS hearty entrée is easy to prepare for Sunday dinner. While the beef is slow cooking, the cook has lots of time to attend to the other details. With mashed potatoes on the side, it’s comfort food for the cool months ahead.
My mom dehydrates the last pick of tomatoes from her garden each fall—perfect for quick soups like this one. If I don't have time to prepare dry beans, canned beans work just as good. —Lori Terry, Chicago
For extra-special steaks at home in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, Harriet Block relies on this simple but flavorful recipe. “I like to round out the meal with oven-roasted potatoes and corn on the cob,” she adds.

Moist and tender chicken thighs make a delicious hot entree for winter months. Just add a salad and a lemon dessert. I set the table with warm, sunny Mediterranean shades and patterns that look gorgeous with this colorful meal.
