Chili Skillet

Meet the Cook: Like most farmers, my husband loves chili. And with all of the vegetables, cheese and meat in it, this quick dish makes a real meal-in-one. I serve it frequently in fall and winter. I began cooking young. My mom taught me a lot...so did years of 4-H! My husband and I have a dairy farm, and we also make maple syrup. I'm the mother of two small boys. They don't care for the olives in this recipe - but the rest they eat right up! -Katherine Brown, Fredericktown, Ohio

"Since we can hardly wait for asparagus to appear in the spring, this recipe is a real family favorite," confides Lois Crissman of Mansfield, Ohio. "If you get too impatient waiting for garden-fresh spears, you can substitute canned or frozen instead, which will also lessen the cooking time."

Meet the Cook: Based on the "moist meat" method of preparation my grandmother used, this gets passed around the table a second time. Even people who think that pork is dry like it. I serve it with mashed potatoes, peas and cranberry sauce. My husband and I have two grown children and four grandchildren. -Nancy Schilling, Berkeley Springs, West Virginia

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.

We like the sauce for my brisket over elk, moose and venison salami as well. And we also use it to spice hamburgers and hot dogs we sizzle on the grill. -Jacque Watkins, Green River, Wyoming

This is the best "fooler" recipe I've ever used. It takes just a few minutes but looks like you fussed. You can even place frozen chicken breasts in the marinade and allow them to defrost and marinade in the refrigerator overnight.—Nan Haring, Portage, Michigan
