Apr 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great and tasty dish. Hubby did not expect the liquidy milk mixture with 3 cups of parm. to infuse the dish with such great cheese taste and flavor. (Did have to go to the butcher shop for the ground lamb.) Keeper. Thanks Giada!"

Do like the idea of using buckwheat noodles, but noodles were sticky and dressing lacked flavor.
Did sub peanut butter and peanuts for almonds. Not a keeper."

My family loves lamb, but this tasted like ground beef. My husband says it had no taste or flavor; my son loves gyros but this got a thumbs down. Never have I tried a recipe @foodnetwork where the ratings were so far off the results.""

Absolutely delicious. Placing in 1 cup Ball jars for hostess gifts. Followed recipe precisely using 1 Tbsp sweet curry and 1.5 tsp. Penzeys reg curry (not hot). Must make a curry dish to go with the chutney. It's all about the condiments!""

Made this dish for guests last night and it was absolutely a show-stopper. The one change I made was the sriracha - 1/4 cup became 1 Tbsp, and it was just right. Served it with Aarti's quinoa tabbouleh and asparagus with white truffle vinaigrette. This is a keeper. Thanks Robert!"

My son just asked me for this recipe, a mainstay in my kitchen, for a friend who is a vegetarian. This is absolutely delicious, altho I use one jalapeno instead of two and reduce the salt to 2 tsp.

Reviewed Giddy-Up Steak with Onion-Date Compote

Feb 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The dry rub for the flank steak was a winner, timing was on the money for my grill pan - med-rare and delicious.
As for the compote, onions don't caramelize with the cover on, and my husband and I agreed that they didn't really add anything to the steak.
