Replied to Tilapia with Tomatillos and Avocado filled with Maque Choux Recipe : Rachael Ray : Food Network

I have made this several times and I have had the tomatillos be bitter once. I would try it again. Maybe it was just the tomatillos.

So good! I've made this twice. The second time I used coconut cream and I liked the richness that it provides better than light coconut milk. I also use probably about a half teaspoon more of the curry paste than the recipe calls for. This dish is definitely becoming a staple in my home. "

I've made this recipe 3 times. Two times I've used it for two different meals, carnitas tacos one night and barbecue pulled pork sandwiches the next. I think it needs more spice than one jalapeno, so I actually use about 3/4 of a can of diced jalapenos. I've definitely had carnitas that were more flavorful, but I think this is a good and easy r"

I don't know how it could take 4 hours to prep this dish. I'd say it took me an hour at the most to get it in the oven, and I'm not a fabulous, experienced cook by any means.

I've made this dish twice for guests, and both times I got rave reviews. I didn't have a problem with the short ribs being fatty like some reviewers. I also, like some other reviewers, had no idea what she meant by crud, so I just made sure the vegetables were nice and brown and it was a great sauce at the end. ""

I thought these swedish meatballs were really good. I could see why some people thought the gravy was a little bland, but I thought it was better when I just added a little more salt. I served them with mashed potatoes. If this recipe was a little healthier, I would probably make it once a week. ""

I thought I didn't like brussels sprouts until I tried this recipe! It's so easy and tasty. ""
