I don';t see how this recipe could be any better (other than having someone else make it for me). I followed the recipe exactly as written and it tasted wonderful. Thanks for posting my new favorite Hungarian recipe."

Reviewed Quick and Easy Thai Beef Salad

Jun 19, 2014 in on Food.com

"Quick & Easy" in the title, just the thing for a weeknight dinner, but you should add "Delicious" to the name, too. I didn';t have to find kaffir lime leaves or lemongrass stalks, I could use the ingredients that I usually have at hand. Delicious! And quick and easy, thanks for sharing this, we enjoyed it this very evening."

Reviewed The Best Easy Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Jun 10, 2014 in on Food.com

I just made this for lunch for my wife and me and I couldn';t be happier with how this turned out. The only thing I cut back on was the beef and broccoli. I cut those two items in half, since I was cooking for only two. I was able to use up some leftover broccoli and sous vide beef to make a delicious lunch. I love the fact that it doesn..

Apr 25, 2014 in on Food.com

I used Better Than Bouillon, both beef and chicken, it';s lower in sodium than most so I used it instead of the 1 12 cups of water, too. I read the reviews and used a rounded 1/2 cup of barley. The beef was some thinly sliced Sirloin Tip roast from a dinner a couple days ago. I didn';t add the 1 tsp of salt, I decided to let people add to...

At the last minute I decided to not use a slow cooker and use a cast iron Dutch oven instead, since I';d be home during the day. It turned out great! I used "The best Creole/Cajun seasoning mix" from kittencal and this was the best version of this dish I';ve ever had. Thanks for my new favorite!"

Mar 5, 2014 in on Food.com

I halved the recipe but otherwise followed it exactly. I';m a fan of Alton Brown and will always follow his recipe the first time before fine-tuning for my own tastes. I loved the smoky flavor given by the chiles in abobo sauce and it was great for me but a little too hot for my wife. She loved the flavor and ate as much as she could before t...

Feb 21, 2014 in on Food.com

I just made this tonight and it was delicious! I used 1 tsp of regular Tabasco instead of 1 Tbl of the green Tabasco ( I had none) and it turned out just right?not too spicy for my wife to eat, although I would';ve liked a bit more zip. This was better than many restaurant versions. Thanks for posting this."

Feb 18, 2014 in on Food.com

This recipe is more than the sum of its parts. The ingredients are few and simple and the result is wonderful. I used penne rigate and Costco';s Kirkland Marinara sauce is 32 oz so it worked out perfectly. I';ve made it many times and once I upped the quantity of meat and it didn';t taste as good. The proportions in the recipe are per...

I don';t need to look any more. This is the recipe that reminds me of the ones my Grandma used to make. I can enjoy these and remember her just a little bit better. Thanks for posting this.
There';s no need to boil (even gently) for 5 minutes. You just need to warm vinegar & beet juice enough to dissolve the brown sugar and salt....

Dec 27, 2013: Made it again with penne pasta and dried basil instead of fresh and it was still delicious. I left the Ital...

I was looking for a version of red-eye gravy with less sugar than most and this one fit the bill. I added 1/4 cup of sliced scallions and 3/4 cup of mushrooms and it turned out great. I cut about 12 ounces from the center of an 19 ounce Costco ham slice (saving the rest for brunch this weekend).
I was able to do the whole thing in one c...

I really liked this. At the last minute, just before topping with the mashed potatoes, I added about 3/4 Cup of frozen peas to the meat mixture. Didn';t bother to thaw them, figured the warm mixture and the baking would work to heat them just fine (it did). I added some grated cheese to the top of the mashed potatoes and that gave it a very g...

I';m not usually fond of recipes that use Cream of Chicken or some-such to add flavor to a recipe, so the fact that this does not use canned soup was a big plus. Even better, it tastes great! Also, it doesn';t use heavy cream which I don';t usually have on hand, the fat comes from butter which I always have in the fridge. I forgot to ...

This didn';t taste anything like an enchilada to my wife and me. It tasted exactly like what it was, a few things dumped together and baked. But it was nearly dinnertime and the ingredients were in the cupboard so I tried it. So, if you get home late from work and the kids are hungry, give this a try, it';s quick and easy. It just might be...
