My first time making my own fries and these turned out great. My boyfriend loved them and kept sneaking into the kitchen to get more. Very easy to make. I will make these again. ""

Apr 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Never made country fried steak but needed to cook a steak I recently defrosted and wanted something a little different. Followed the recipe with the exception of the seasoning. I used a spice mix that I found while visiting New Orleans this past week called Slap Ya MaMa. :) It's true.... It is a simple but balanced mix of salt, red pepper, black pepper...

I hate to give this recipe this rating because I have loved so many recipes from the Food network. So maybe I did something wrong but I followed the instructions and was not a fan of the texture or taste. My dogs however loved them and would probably give them 4 stars..At least someone had a good breakfast this morning.. :("

I just finished eating this amazing recipe and everyone in the house was raving about it. I read the reviews about the lemon flavor and squeezed a half of a lemon into the sauce. I also still used the zest and it was not overpowering. I used dried pasta because I did not have any fresh fettuccine. I seasoned the sauce to taste with a little garlic...

Very tasty dish...So easy and went great with mango coconut rice. Just added a bit of corn starch at the end for a thicker sauce.

I made this recipe tonight and did not have any of the issues other people had. I followed the directions exactly and the rice was very good. The last step is very important to cover the rice and let it steam. I let it steam for 8-10 min and the rice was perfect. I used a very ripe Mango so the sweetness was there. I served this dish with a coconut...

I agree with everyone who has reviewed this dish. Great recipe but too much salt...I always tell myself I will read the reviews before making the recipe but always get excited and don't read them until after I am done. Love the spin with the hot sauce. Will have to cut the salt in half if not more... Can't wait to try it again

This was my first time making short ribs and this recipe was great. The meat was just falling off the bone and my boyfriend loved it. I removed the ribs and thickened the gravy up a bit with a little corn starch and then soaked the meat back in the gravy on the stove for a few before serving. Everyone went back for seconds. :)

This was and incredible recipe and have made it 3 times since Thanksgiving and each time I am lucky if my friends and family leave me with 1 piece. I found that the cooking time worked perfect for me so it may depend on your type of oven and if you need to leave it in for a longer period of time. Recently I made it for a New Years get together and...

The recipe did come out very salty. We made a small test batch first because we saw that 2 tablespoons of Adobo looked like too much seasoning. Once we made some adjustments the filling was very tasty. I liked the ingredients so I just suggest that you season with the Adobo to taste and ignore the measurments.
