Okay, I'm making this recipe today and have a question -- I don't want to mess with blending the beans (or emulsifying them!) so I plan on just keeping the beans as-is. Does anyone see a problem with that based on their experience in making this recipe? Thanks!

Thanks - was just looking for an alternative for cranberry juice (since I don't have any!)

Yes, definitely went with 1/8-1/4" thick slices, doubled the gruyere, added olive oil and freshly minced garlic to the skillet and simmered for extra time as some of the other reviews suggested. Also, I cooked it in the oven for a bit longer. After 25 mins at 425, I let it sit for an additional 25 minutes with the oven turned off. Delicious!""

Based on this episode, I went for the trifecta - I am not a baker, but a decent cook - by cooking the pork, potatoes & slaw. While the potatoes were delicious, I felt the recipe did call for a bit too much liquid. Could have had something to do with the fact that I didn't use heavy cream, just half and half and 1% milk. I felt like the potatoes...

I liked the ingredients in this coleslaw recipe, but the cabbage looked like it was swimming in milk, which it was. Next time, I will follow what some of the other reviews say and use A LOT less liquid. Maybe Ree just has HUGE heads of cabbage or something. Otherwise, the flavor was yummy.""

As with most of the rest of you, I saw this show and made the recipe that night. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because it was too spicy. Not for me, but for those I was cooking for. I only used one 7oz can of chipotle peppers. Next time, I think will not use any peppers and will just toss a few TBSPs of a good bbq sauce on top instead. ...

My first attempt at a brisket, and it was amazing! I used chicken broth instead of wine because my husband doesn't like the taste of red wine used in cooking which is just as well - more for me to drink! I found that a 4+ lb brisket was a bit unruly and difficult to brown on "all sides", as the recipe called for, but I got it to work. Had to u...

I enjoy cooking Tyler's stuff because most of it is so easy! This recipe was no exception. Simple and REALLY GOOD. The chicken was even a hit with my picky 6 yr old son. The only thing I added was a couple of cloves of garlic to the pan of olive oil - garlic makes everything taste better! Excellent recipe and one that I will use time and time"

Made this for xmas eve. As others have said, I added the entire can of beans and 8oz of philly cream cheese. I also added some parmesan to the top and broiled it on high for 5 mins. Also, I didn't cook it at 450 as I thought that was too hot, so I cooked it at 400. When my guests inquired about the recipe, when I told then there was entire can...

Reviewed Halibut with Tuscan Beans and Endive

Nov 14, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

By far, this is my favorite fish recipe (so far) from the FN website. I used tilapia instead of halibut and it worked out perfectly. The mix of the beans and red peppers seemed unusual (which is why I thought I'd like it - two of my favorite things) at first, but it turned out to be very yummy. As usual, I used twice the garlic the recipe called...

Delicious! I made some orzo as a side dish with sauteed garlic, broccoli and zucchini. Next time, I will make some spaghetti noodles... also, I added some chopped, fresh garlic to the pan before frying the chicken. Scrumptious!

I didn't grill the fish, I fried it in olive oil and freshly chopped garlic, so I believe that helped with the flavor. I also took some liberties with the lemon butter. I didn't have time to heat, refrigerate and then get back down to room temp, but it turned out really, REALLY yummy. I also cooked the orzo in chicken broth.
