Reviewed Pot Roast
"Made this yesterday using a 4 lb. bottom round in an enameled cast iron dutch oven. I brought it to a simmer before putting it into the oven. It was done in 3 hrs & 15 minutes. Doubled all the ingredients.
Very good & a nice change. The meat was perfectly done.
Will certainly be in the braised beef rotation. Not 5 stars because, IMHO, it's n"
"The rub is a party in your mouth. I didn't have all the specified chiles so I substituted some. Since I cooked the chicken in the oven, I added some smoked paprika & chipotle. Didn't make the sauce instead used bottled BBQ sauce(Bull's Eye) & added bourbon. The bourbon doctored sauce was so good I don't know when I'll be tempted to make my own. Wi"
Reviewed Sweet Potato Waffles
"Great & forgiving recipe. I used whole wheat pastry flour & a mix of peanut & walnut oil instead of butter. After tasting the batter also added a small amount of vanilla(maybe 1/4 teas.)Definitely worth the prep. Those that thought the waffles were heavy--maybe didn't weight the flour or maybe used a Belgian waffle iron?"
Reviewed Kentucky Hot Browns
"For us the batter dipped bread was a bridge too far. We found the dish overly rich--maybe we just aren't Hot Brown fans. Also didn't care for the consistency wished for more/diffent texture. If I ever try this again, I'll go with toast & raw tomato. BTW The cheese sauce is improved with a bit of Dijon mustard. Very sorry, I didn't go with our stan"
Reviewed Turkey with Stuffing
"I used this technique on a 22+ lb brined locally raised fresh turkey for Thanksgiving. A heads up--the turkey was cooked 2.5 hrs ahead of "schedule". I worried about the long wait but the bird was the "best"--& I normally cook a nice juicy bird. I later learned that Gordon Ramsey rests his turkey for hrs--as long as it cooks. I used my own stuffin"
Reviewed 40 Cloves and a Chicken
"AB what were you thinking? Flavor is excellent but the chicken is over cooked to the point of being nearly inedible--which I was afraid of but wanted to follow the recipe exactly first. Not sure this recipe is salvagable--well cooked chicken & garlic. At least I was able to try out the stupid garlic trick from Youtube. Worked great."
Reviewed Dutch Oven Hoecakes
"Half the stars to AB & the other half to the commentator who suggested cream style corn. I used an entire can mixed with the egg then eyeballed the water to the right consistency. Also added a bit of brown sugar. BTW My grandmother made something similar to AB's adding minced onion & pepper as a savory sidedish."
Reviewed Garden Vegetable Soup
"Very good especially considering how fast it is. It did need additional salt & I'm not a salt fan. Won't replace my veg beef soup made over 2 days starting with the stock but I'll be making this much more often."
