Meet the Cook: I've enjoyed cooking and baking since I was just a girl - and my husband and I now have eight grandchildren! But this recipe is actually his. He's a meat cutter, and we'll have this dish as often as once a week (it's as good, if not better, reheated). We've made this for family dinners, picnics, potlucks...it's so popular I make sure I have a copy of the recipe to pass out. -Patricia Ann Fredell, Orion, Illinois

"I double the sauce proportions for 1 1/2 lbs of steak, and serve over brown rice instead of white."
