Replied to horseradish mashed potatoes

Jan 12, 2015 on FoodNetwork.com

Changing the copious amounts of cream and butter used in this recipe to normal portions would drastically change the texture and flavor of this dish. It would be thicker, have a stronger horseradish flavor, and the dish would have less salt. The potato flavor would be much more pronounced, as cream has a tendency to kill or dilute other flavors...

Replied to horseradish mashed potatoes

Jan 12, 2015 on FoodNetwork.com

Waxy potatoes and lots and lots of cream and butter form an oil slick both on your potatoes and inside your mouth. Have you noticed that Ree is not getting slammed for copious amounts of butter, despite her using as much as Deen did on her show? By the way using much less butter and less cream entirely changes the texture of the dish, so it would...

This is not mashed potatoes. This is what the French refer to as "aligot," a mixture of waxy potatoes and garlic with lots and lots of cream and butter. The only thing that's missing is the Tomme de Laguiole or Tomme d'Auvergne cheese. While you can add horseradish, it is not a classic flavor of the dish. Meanwhile, as I was watching the preparation,...

You are confusing this recipe with another show. There are 2 restaurants with almost identical names that were on Irvine's R.I. You picked the wrong one. The recipe above is exactly as shown on the TV episode.

He cooks with grapeseed oil because it is flavorless and has an extremely high smoking point - so it doesn't burn and smoke as easily.

I would have given this recipe 4 stars, but it is different than what is shown on the TV episode. In the show, Robert Irvine added some cream to the green peppercorn sauce, which improves the dish. Here, it is omitted.

This recipe is incomplete. Where is the recipe for the brown gravy, or the flaky pie crust that will hold up to a pot pie? Any fool can brown some meat and mix. If you're going to buy brown gravy and buy the crust, you might as well buy the filling too... and pick it all up as a frozen pot pie in your grocer's freezer.

Perfect for using two 9 inch baking pans. The cake was moist, with very good chocolate flavor. Good texture also for a cake using AP flour. Definitely a keeper. Cooking time was not affected by using 9 inch pans. I opted to use my own favorite chocolate frosting, since I prefer a silky, glossy frosting with intense chocolate taste and not too...

This recipe as written simply does not work. Like other reviewers, several pieces of onion were absolutely black, instead of caramelized. I even took precautions before baking, making sure that none of the onion pieces were too far away from the other pieces, and that none of the onion slices had tips pointing up. Next time, I will wait about 35...

This recipe is a winner. It utilizes ingredients that are readily available and affordable throughout the year. No special cooking equipment required. Even a moderately priced skillet works just fine, because there is no cooking in a screaming hot oven or broiling necessary. I think the cooked, cherry tomato sauce is a great way to add a bit o"

I find this recipe to be quite expensive compared to other barbecued recipes, for it requires a whole bottle of soy sauce just for the marinade, which then gets poured down the drain. Plus half of a large bottle of ketchup and a whole bottle of chili sauce. Heinz chili sauce goes for almost $5 a bottle in this area. Cooking bags are also expensive...

I am giving this recipe a middling rating because of the discrepancies in the recipe here vs. the tv show. In the episode, their short ribs were boneless and cooked off the bone. There was no shredding of the meat, it was simply sliced into large pieces and put on buns. Furthermore, the tv episode stated that the short ribs were cooked at 200 degrees...

I, too, noticed that all of the fat from the bacon was poured into the pan with the tomatoes to make the vinaigrette. I was concerned that as the dish would cool, the fat would begin to solidify and make for a very unpleasant dish. So, I would strain the bacon out with a slotted spoon, and substitute a few tablespoons of mild salad oil, if needed,...

Great technique for roasting a turkey. However, I would like to add a few helpful hints in terms of seasoning. To flavor the meat with salt, herbs and lemon, you need to mix them with butter and put them under the skin. Otherwise, the meat will not be seasoned under the skin Mixing them with soft butter, rather than melted butter, is the easiest...

I was a little concerned about the squash sticking and burning around the edges on my expensive, new baking sheet... but the vegetables slid right off. I miss the typical...
