Just the thing to beef up meals

* Item: Quick-N-Easy Certified Angus Beef entrees

* What you get: 2 to 3 servings

* Cost: About $10

* Preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes in microwave, 25 to 30 minutes in conventional oven

* Review: There's a whole range of these fully cooked, heat-and-serve Certified Angus Beef entrees in the meat case at many grocery stores. They're meal builders: Just pair them with a few side dishes, and dinner is served. We tried the Beef Pot Roast with Gravy and the Beef Sirloin Tri Tip Roast. Both offered tender cuts of meat with little fat. The pot roast warmed quickly and evenly in the microwave. The gravy was similar to au jus with the mellow flavor of having been nurtured in a slow oven. The sirloin tips, however, were a bit on the rare side for our taste. And a lighter hand with the salt, garlic and onion seasoning would help.
