Reviewed Marinated Tuna Steaks with Ancho Chile Red Wine Sauce and Spinach-Tomatillo Rice Cake

May 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I didn't have all of the ingredients, so I substituted different chiles and brown short grain rice for the arborio. Also don't have a blender/food processor so just chopped finely. Very good!

I tried this recipe thinking I could easily replace the flank steak with something else...and that it's OK if I don't necessarily tie it together, it'll stay, right?
Wrong. Definitely use flank steak, and make sure you have something to tie it together or toothpicks to hold it together with. Also, be careful pouring wine into a dry pot --...

Great recipe! I added a lot of chili powder because I like spiciness, and that just made it perfect for me. I also added a little bit of chicken stock and flour before the wine, because last time I just added wine to a dry pot it lit on fire...

Either way, the recipe was not too difficult to follow, tasted great, and I will be making...

This is now a staple in my "menu" if you will. I made this for my boyfriend with white beans underneath - it looked so fancy and tasted so good! This is an easy, different chicken dish that's quick to prep and cook. I highly recommend, thank you Ina!

note: I used chicken thighs. I just like dark meat so much better, and they come...

In addition to other Ina Garten dishes, this is a staple menu item for me. Easy to make, versatile (don't have capers? that's OK! dish that you can whip up in no time and is a welcome addition to the usual plain grilled fish option.

I used it on tilapia without the capers and with plain old grocery-store mustard. Tasted great and...

So, I'm on a fish-and-shrimp only diet and looking for new and interesting ways to prepare fish, with lots of veggies. This really fit the bill. Easy to make, and I made some adjustments: DELETE the butter entirely and just top off with olive oil, no bread crumbs.
