This was delicious!! It will be my go to recipe now for my banh mi!! I think Anne is probably one of the best chefs on the network. Wish she didn't talk to her food so much though!!

Awesome!! Make a double batch of the marinate and add the second half to the same amount of your favorite bbq sauce--ours is Sweet Baby Ray's. It was delicious.

I just made this complete recipe and it was truly outstanding. I was afraid that the spice mixture for the lamb would taste like Chinese five spice, which I don't care for, but it was much more delicate in flavor and really enhanced the lamb! Make sure you use a hoisin sauce that you know you like, or that could really cause a problem. The bok choy...

These were really good. They weren't quite as flavorful as I thought they would be, but still really tasty. I have enough stuffing left to do about 20 more mushrooms, however. I think next time I will use Marsala instead of dry vermouth and will use half sour cream and half cream cheese. I also reduced my balsamic vinegar down so it got nice and syrupy....

I found that changing from using Yahoo as my browser, to Google Chrome, all of the problems I was having with the food network site have gone away. Foodnetwork and Yahoo are not compatible since the network has made all of the recent (and crappy) changes. Hope that will help you as well.

Really nice flavor. Even better the next day! I left out the red pepper but did everything else exactly per recipe. The onions add a nice texture and flavor. Really good.

This was ok, but didn't have all that much flavor. If there is a next time, I would use either sherry or marsala wine and would season the shrimp before cooking. The sauce had a nice consistancy.

It's called 'Quick" Kimchi, not "Authentic" Kimchi. If you want to take the time to make the 'real stuff' then go for it. For the rest of us that want a fantastic meal on the table in a relatively short period of time, this recipe hits the spot!!!

This sandwich is delicious!! I followed the recipe just about exactly, but let my marinated pork sit in the fridge overnight and cooked it in the crock pot instead of the oven. It pretty much just melted in my mouth! The tomato sauce is rather hot (which we liked!), but a little goes a long way. Hot, but extremely tasty!! Don't pass on the onions,...

Took 10 minutes to make the rub and coat the pork. Took 10 minutes to make the picco de gallo. 15 minutes to make the onions and 20 minutes to make the sauce. I don't include cooking time as prep time. For a sandwich with this many complex flavors, not really very time consuming at all!!! A sandwich better than this in just a few minutes??? I don't...

Perhaps you are using Yahoo as your browser. After MANY complaints to the food network, I was finally told to use Google Chrome when using the foodnetwork site and since doing that I have had no problems. Since changing all of their formats, they are not supported very well by Yahoo.

OMG!!! If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would. I can't believe I just MADE the best potato chips I've ever eaten!! I'm going to use Jeff's bbq seasoning (he put on kale chips in one episode) for bbq chips. Fantastic recipe!!! Super crispy.

These are good. I used beef instead of pork and think this would be an awesome base for homemade chili!! Don't over char the peppers or they will end up being to soft to actually pick up as a finger food.

Good comment about the lemon! When a recipe calls for one onion, shallot, tomato, garlic clove or lime, the sizes can vary quite a bit and can really alter what may have been a good recipe. Nice if the chefs would use cup or tablespoon measurements instead.

Thanks for the reply. On most of the recipes I pull up, those red and white boxes don't show up. Like this one, there are none on my computer screen. And on the ones that the boxes do come up, when I press the save icon, I get an hour glass and then nothing happens. Food Network keeps ignoring my requests for help, so thanks for your response!!!

Complaining to the site administrators does no good. Most times they don't even reply to your questions. I understand that you shouldn't rate the recipe based on this networks problems, but the changes they have made are EXTREMELY frustrating!!!!

Even though this episode was called 'Oven Rules" , I was more interested in making the sandwich than how to cook the beef. For those that don't want to have a smokey house, go to your local deli and ask for thinly sliced, rare roast beef. Go home and drizzle the beef with clarified butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper, wrap in aluminum foil, and...

I thought this was a good recipe. The idea of mixing the milk in with the flour was great. Made a really crispy coating. I would, however, salt and pepper the chicken before coating it with the 'batter' and would definately add more salt to the coating just to make it more flavorful. Keeping the oil temperature steady is key to this recipe.

The 52 oz 'steak' was actually a roast that Tyler cut iinto individual steaks. It had been dry aged as the whole roast. I agree with other reviewer that the cost of that meat would be prohibitive to most of us.
