Here's a healthy dinner on the go, an easy sandwich you can
pack up and take in the car when you're rushing the kids off to
soccer or band. It's also a quick favorite when the adults just
want to hang out on the deck on Saturday...
A brandied mixed mushroom sauce tops seared strip steak in
our healthy version of the classic dish Steak Diane. Serve with
garlic mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.
This recipe, which is an adaptation of Ruth Reichl's "Mother's Brisket", originally published in Gourmet magazine, works great with other cuts of meat besides brisket, such as a nice chuck roast. Yes, this cooks for hours and hours -- but you're only spending about 30 minutes holding its hand, so please don't be put off. Make it on a Sunday and eat it all week. You won't be sorry. I fed nine people with a three-pound roast, the key being to slice it nice and thin so that everyone feels like they're getting tons.

across the grain to ensure the most tender results.
