Replied to Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

It's a great, five star recipe even though I actually make something completely different. Really?

Same here. No way would you not burn the chicken in direct heat. This recipe seems like it would only work using indirect heat.

I agree this is correctly made with a rich stock but heavy cream beats using bullion or canned broth.

Since always. There are variations with veal demi glace or dijon mustard but heavy cream is the real deal.

Tasty but the ingredients are a little confusing. Sazon contains, among other things, coriander and cumin so it seems a little strange to add yet more coriander and cumin to the sazon seasoning. Of course in the long run it didn't matter because there were no leftovers!

I'm a fan of Aaron and I would certainly never argue with him about what's authentic but I think carne asada meat should be marinated in citrus with some garlic and cumin.

Same here. Love Giada but no way we can make this in 30 minutes. Doesn't matter though because it's delicious and worth the effort.

Shallots not onions. Lose the tomato paste and lemon juice. A couple of TBSPS of cognac instead. And where's the paprika?

Boring and bland. Too much liquid. Pretty good recipe if you're teaching kids how to cook. Not much flavor for adults.

Except for the addition of Worcestershire, which is odd anyway, this is the standard recipe for making hot wings. Not sure it's worthy of adding to Food Network's recipe database. Alton's steam and bake method or Bobby Flay's very original twist on the tried and true are why I browse recipes here. I mean seriously, it's like reading instructions on...

I'm from upstate New York and I've eaten wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo. Frank's hot sauce is the way to go but margarine is just gross. Alton's cooking method gives a pretty close approximation to deep frying in my humble opinion without the artery clogging oil of frying. I use aluminum foil in place of parchment paper, it seems to crisp the...

This is the same way I've made guacamole for years except I use 2 or 3 serrano chiles for more heat.

The whole point of brining the bird is so it will have moist meat. The basting afterward with butter is an unnecessary, fat laden step.

Very tasty. I also added chicken. For those that aren't aware, peccorino is a type of romano. Although you may not find it in your grocery store any romano would work.
