Reviewed BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

Sep 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I thought this was great and so easy. I followed the recipe except my store didn't have boneless, so I used a 5 1/2 lb bone in pork shoulder. I cut it up the best that I could and the meat fell off of the bone when it was finished cooking. I cooked this on low for about 8 hours. I wasn't sure if I was going to make the carrot slaw as I didn't "

I have made this so many times- I love it. My grocery store carries small bottles of flavored oil, so I just use store bought chili oil. I also get green olives in red pepper flakes from the olive bar and then use the oil from the container in the pan with the chicken. I typically use way more than 1 cup of olives- I think the more the better, b"

I followed the recipe, except I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese and didn't use the oven ready noodles. It came out great. The only thing that I think I would change next time is to make more of the ricotta/parmesan filling. I ran out before the 3rd layer. I also put fresh mozzarella on the top because had some and had already used up th...

This was my first time making banana bread and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I followed the recipe except I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose and used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate. I will definitely be making this again next time I have leftover bananas. It would also taste great with some walnuts. ""

I love this recipe and have made it quite a few times. it's quick and easy and I typically have all of the ingredients on hand. I used mascarpone instead of whipping cream because I had some and it came out great. ""

I liked this, but can't say that I was dazzled by it. It seemed like a lot of work for what it actually was. The cut of meat was on the fatty side, which I don't like, but that might just be a matter of preference. I also think I had really high expectations after seeing the 5 star ratings, so I was slightly disappointed with this. I read the ...

I've made this twice and both times it was a hit with my family and friends. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and liked the way it turned out. The second time I was a little more liberal with the salt and the liquid smoke and I think that made it better. Both times I used the unpeeled bananas with foil. ""

I doubled the recipe and followed it exactly as written and it turned out great. I would highly recommend. ""

I thought these were great. I did have to bake them closer to 30 minutes for them to crisp. Also, I just used a little bit of olive oil cooking spray instead of the oil. "

I agree with the last post. This recipe was very bland and tasted nothing like a deviled egg. We ate a small amount and I'm going to throw away the rest as it is definitely not worth the calories.
