Sesame Steaks

There's enough flavor in these steaks to allow the side dish to be simple. So consider serving them with baked potatoes, rice pilaf or another plain vegetable and salad. The meal has always gone over big when I've fixed it for my husband and friends helping out with his latest home construction project. David and I have a daughter, 3. Her new brother or sister is due any day! -Elaine Anderson, Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

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

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

Meet the Cook: As the second oldest of eight children in a busy farm family, I had plenty of opportunity to practice cooking while I was growing up.

For "country eaters", this hearty pie is perfect! -Diane Gillingham, Carman, Manitoba

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
