My husband and I love Thai food, but going out on weeknights can be challenging with our busy schedules. I created this Thai-inspired dinner that can double as a quick and easy lunch for the next day. The beef in this recipe is fantastic, but chicken or pork would be equally good.

—Ashley Lecker, Green Bay, WI

PREP: 30 min. • COOK: 7 3/4 hours • MAKES: 10 servings

1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 lbs.), halved

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 large sweet red pepper, sliced

1 can (13.66 oz.) coconut milk

3/4 cup beef stock

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup red curry paste

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

2 Tbsp. honey

2 tsp. minced fresh gingerroot

1/2 lb. fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

Hot cooked brown or white rice

Optional toppings: thinly sliced green onions, chopped peanuts, hot sauce and lime wedges

1. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Place beef and pepper slices in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk coconut milk, beef stock, peanut butter, curry paste, soy sauce, honey and ginger; pour over meat. Cook, covered, on low 7-8 hours or until meat is tender.

2. Remove beef; cool slightly. Skim fat from reserved juices. Shred beef with two forks. Return beef to slow cooker; stir in snap peas. Cook, covered, on low 45-60 minutes longer or until peas are crisp-tender. Stir in cilantro. Serve with rice and, if desired, toppings of your choice.

FREEZE OPTION: Place cooled meat mixture in freezer containers and freeze. To use, partially thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, gently stirring and adding a little broth or water if necessary.

Red curry paste, a combination of Asian spices (lemongrass, lime leaves, etc.), can add an amazing flavor punch to your dishes. Look for it in the ethnic aisle of your grocery store.



Here’s a speedy stovetop version of classic chicken cordon bleu. I often toss in sliced mushrooms if I have them on hand. Cooked veggies like broccoli or cauliflower are delicious additions, too.

—Sandy Harz, Spring Lake, MI

TAKES: 25 min. • MAKES: 4 servings

8 oz. uncooked medium egg noodles (about 5 cups)

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1-in. pieces

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 Tbsp. butter

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/2 cup cubed fully cooked ham

1/4 cup water

Minced fresh parsley

1. Cook egg noodles according to package directions; drain.

2. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with pepper. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute the chicken just until browned, 3-5 minutes. Stir in soup, cheese, ham and water; cook, covered, over medium heat until cheese is melted and chicken is no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the noodles. Sprinkle with parsley.

To make cubed cooked chicken for recipes, simmer some boneless chicken breasts in a little water seasoned with salt, pepper and your favorite herbs. Cool and dice; keep the chicken pieces in the freezer to pull out when needed.



Impress everyone at your table with this elegant but easy salmon. Feel free to switch up the ingredients to suit your tastes. You can substitute scallions for the shallot or try almonds or pecans instead of pistachios. The nutty coating also plays well with chicken and pork.

—Linda Press Wolfe, Cross River, NY

TAKES: 30 min. • MAKES: 6 servings

6 salmon fillets (4 oz. each)

1/3 cup sour cream

2/3 cup dry bread crumbs

2/3 cup chopped pistachios

1 shallot, minced (about 1/2 cup)

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 to 2 Tbsp. prepared horseradish

1 Tbsp. snipped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dill weed

1/2 tsp. grated lemon or orange zest

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1 garlic clove, minced

Preheat oven to 350°. Place salmon, skin side down, in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spread sour cream over each fillet. Combine remaining ingredients. Pat crumb-nut mixture onto tops of salmon fillets, pressing to help coating adhere. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes.

1 SALMON FILLET: 376 cal., 25g fat (5g sat. fat), 60mg chol., 219mg sod., 15g carb. (3g sugars, 2g fiber), 24g pro. DIABETIC EXCHANGES: 3 lean meat, 2 fat.


For best results, be sure to use plain horseradish, not horseradish sauce or creamed horseradish in this recipe. Try 1 Tbsp. horseradish for a nice mild flavor. For a little more bite, increase to 2 or 3 Tbsp.


These beef tips remind me of a childhood favorite. I cook them with mushrooms and serve over brown rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.

—Amy Lents, Grand Forks, ND

PREP: 20 min. • COOK: 15 min. • MAKES: 4 servings

3 tsp. olive oil

1 beef top sirloin steak (1 lb.),
