seared steak with chard salad
There will be plenty of hot dogs and hamburgers going around this Fourth of July weekend, so prepare something different that’s great for entertaining or even a regular weeknight meal. Sirloin steak is seasoned with salt, pepper and chopped mint and seared to your preferred cooking temperature. Serve it with a salad of chard, tomatoes, crumbled feta and croutons for a complete meal ready in 35 minutes.

Editor’s Note: If you’re feeding a crowd and looking to keep costs down, try an inexpensive cut of meat like flank or skirt steak.

Ina’s Lemon Pasta With Roasted Shrimp is one of the most elegant-looking dishes you’ll ever make, and it’s also one of the easiest, on the table in just 30 minutes.  While you’re waiting for the water to boil, toss shrimp in a good olive oil, season with salt and black pepper and roast them until they’re pink. When the angel hair pasta is cooked to al dente, quickly toss it with butter, lemon zest, olive oil and the shrimp.

Editor’s Note: While some people leave shrimp tails on, guests will be grateful if you do the work ahead of time, keeping their hands clean.
