This was very tasty and easy. I used a sirloin steak, that's what I had in the freezer. It was very easy to slice, since it was still partially frozen. I also keep my ginger in the freezer. Just a few grates on the microplane, and we were rolling!

Delicious and easy. Rao's Marinara sauce is available in a lot of grocery stores,too. It does eliminate a step.
As a side note, why would someone give a mediocre review just because of a misspelling of a word?? That's ridiculous! Just sayin'!!"

Someone said earlier if they could give this recipe a negative 1, they would. Me, too!! What a waste of money!! I have a programmable Rival Crock pot, white pottery. After the first hour, it started to smell so good. After about 2 hours, I was wrapping presents in the next room, and it smelled like something burning. I too remember what Trisha sa"

Delicious!! The dressing is easy and tastes great! I followed the recipe(I always follow the recipe the first time, then tweak it later). The dry mustard does not overwhelm the slaw. As someone said previously, it needs to sit in the fridge for a while. We had it on/with pulled pork sandwiches. So good!!"

I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could!! Easy! I had all the ingredients in the house, except for the candies. After a quick trip to the store, I got down to business. I wish I had gotten 2 packs of the candies! Don't make my mistake! Make a double batch. This recipe makes 12 LARGE cookies, but they're going to go FAST! YUM!!!!!! ""

They were okay, rather tasteless. I added quite a bit of cheese, but they did not have the stringy factor like on TV. Probably won't make again. :-("

To the people that were saying the coconut milk is thick, Are you using coconut MILK, or CREAM of coconut?? There is a Big difference. I'm just asking, because I am the queen of crappy rice, and mine turned out perfect. :-)"

I followed the recipe to a T, the rice was perfect! I used Jasmine rice. I was a little concerned that it was going to be too sweet, but it wasn't. The rice had such a delicate flavor. I thought it was very fluffy. I had never used the towel method for the steaming of the rice, I will do this ALL the time!!!! ANOTHER KEEPER!!!

Delicious!! We also made the coconut rice, YUM!!! Very easy to make. We skewered the veggies separately, since the shrimp cooks so fast. We started the veggies, then the shrimp went on last. Perfect!! A KEEPER!"

I just wanted to say that I have noticed that Food Network does change the recipes from the shows quite a bit!! It is very disappointing. I went to the Ciao Italia site and got their recipe. I got my tastebuds set for the Sfogliatella, but wasn't gonna try this recipe after reading the reviews! Thanks for the tip,Savouries! Her (Mary Ann Esposito)"

The pork chops were very good. We did them outside over charcoal. Low and slow!! They were very good.
I have made the house seasoning a while back, we do try to cut back on sodium, so I used about 1/2 the about of salt Paula calls for in her recipe.

Great soup! SO EASY!! I followed the recipe, but did NOT add the olives to the soup. (I just couldn't imagine what 7 hours in the crock pot would do to them) I used them as garnish.

Mmmmmm.... So good. Very easy. I cooked the sweetened condensed milk for 3 hours. I put it on the bananas while it was still warm and spreadable. It does "set up" when it cools. I cheated a little, and used a prepared graham cracker crust. This was a favorite, I will make this again, and again!

I usually like Ina's recipes, but this one was not that good. The breading was too heavy. Chicken Piccata is supposed to be light. The sauce was good. It is supposed to be a little tart. I will stick with my tried and true old recipe.
