Whenever I ask my husband what he'd like for dinner, this is what he requests. I double the recipe so that I can enjoy it with him. He thinks this rivals the stir-fries served in many restaurants.—Margery Bryan, Moses Lake, Washington
Looking for a heartwarming meal-in-one on a nippy autumn evening? Try this hearty stew from Margaret Peschke in Hadley, New York. Cube steak makes it quick and economical.
Tip: Combine leftover onion soup mix with 1-1/2 cups sour cream for a tasty dip, or with 3 cups water for soup.
Ronda Karbo shared a soy sauce marinade that we used on colorful beef and vegetable kabobs. "When our grill comes out tin the spring, this is the first recipe my family asks me to make," says the Russell, Minnesota reader. "You can also use this marinade on six pork chops or a large piece of round steak cut into serving-size pieces."
Sirloin steak and fresh vegetables take center stage in this showstopper from Pamela Brandal. "While I don't have much time to cook, I like to experiment with food," says the Park City, Illinois reader. "This quick dish is a favorite."
These classic kabobs are a hearty way to use up your garden harvest. At our house, everyone fixes their own skewers for an all-in-one dinner. I sometimes substitute venison for beef.

The first time I tried this recipe was years ago when we were going to my in-laws for a Mother's Day dinner. We've made a few adjustments to the original recipe, only improving on the great taste.
