Sirloin tips, shrimp recipes get thumbs up

-A A +A
By Susan Lowery


I always have a file of recipes that I haven’t gotten around to trying yet, some I’ve cut out of magazines and newspapers, and some people have sent me. This week’s two recipes are extremely easy, and I can now report after trying them that they are both very good.

I tried the E Z Sirloin Tips on my family a week or so ago, and everyone said they liked it a lot.

The Sechuan Shrimp I tried out just for me, and it’s a good thing, because I ate almost all of it. It’s great on rice or Chinese noodles. 

See what you think!
