Main Dish

Creamy Paprika Pork

When I was little, I would often ask my mom to make “favorite meat.” She knew what I was really requesting was this homey pork recipe. It’s been in my family for more than 30 years and is still a favorite! —Alexandra Barnett, Forest, Virginia

Sausage and Kraut Buns

This recipe has become a regular at our church potlucks. Let’s just say I’m “in trouble” if I show up at a get-together and they don’t appear! For a fun dinner spin, try these sausages and kraut over mashed potatoes. —Patsy Unruh, Perryton, Texas

Beef and Mushrooms with Smashed Potatoes

I was inspired to make this recipe after I couldn’t stop thinking of a similar dish served in my elementary school cafeteria more than 50 years ago! I like that it’s quick to make, and everyone from my husband to my grandchildren just love it. —Ronna Farley, Rockville, Maryland

Mini Sausage Pies

The simple ingredients and family-friendly flavor of these little sausage cups make them a go-to dinner favorite. The fact that everyone gets their own pie makes them even better! —Kerry Dingwall, Ponte Vedra, Florida

Quick Sesame Chicken Noodles

I love playing around with different ingredients and spices in my stir-fry recipes. As my children get older, I have more evenings when I need to whip up dinner quickly, and this dish with chicken strips and ramen noodles fits the bill deliciously. —Heather Chambers, Largo, Florida

Squash and Lentil Lamb Stew

My family lived in New Zealand many years ago. My mother made a lamb stew every Sunday. It was my dad’s favorite! I changed the recipe to suit my family’s modern palates, but it’s just as exotic and delicious. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada
