Outstanding! Cooked to perfection, flavor was out of this world... Instead of making the gravy you suggested, I whizzed up the cooking juices and onions with an immersion blender. Best gravy EVER! Thank you for making my Christmas dinner a huge success!""

I usually don't like it when someone makes substitutions and then gives a recipe a poor review, however.... I had to substitute fresh orange juice (no tangerines available). We thought the vinegar was too strong. We'll try it again with 1 Tbsp instead of 4. I even tried to compensate by adding a little brown sugar. ""

Delicious, and fun to make, but a little too salty... I didn't add any salt other than to the pasta cooking water. I guess it was residual from the clams. ""

For my July 4th party, I grilled a variety of skewers.... yakitori chicken, marinated shrimp, and these beef skewers. They were a super big hit, and more than one person was asking for the recipe. Really delicious!"

I was just going to rant and rave about people changing the recipe and then reviewing it, and realized I had used Italian sausage instead of chicken. Nevertheless, I did make the rest of the recipe as directed, and the pesto was delicious. Everyone in the family was totally knocked out by this one! Yum-a-licious!! On a side note, it's always a"

Freakin delicious! Like the previous reviewer, I butterflied a whole chicken...smothered it in the harissa, and only had time to let it sit for an hour. I let it come to room temperature, put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 425, then 30 minutes at 400.. About half way through, I had to put a little water in the baking dish to keep the harissa f"

My wife doesn't like spicy food, so I reduced the pepper flake to 1/2 tsp. I served it over little pearls of pasta called Pasta Abruzzese, and on the side, a mixed salad with honey mustard vinaigrette. This is one of the most delicious dishes I've ever taken from FN. Alex-- I love you and your new program. Kudos!!"

My God, Aarti... SO delicious. The smell in the house while this was cooking was REALLY good!

I served the brisket with smashed red potatoes (champ style) and steamed green beans. The kids weren't home for dinner tonight, so there'll be plenty of leftovers. I'm sure it's going to be even more delicious tomorrow...

I made this recipe a second time, and this time I didn't have a problem with the onions! I made a double batch, and used a can of pinto beans and a can of black beans. DELICIOUS! This is now my go-to recipe for refried beans. And it's healthy!!

I only used the recipe for the shredded beef, which I used on beef tostadas. This beef was so delicious and tender... it was exactly what I was looking for. There was a little bit left over which I re-heated and ate the next day. Unbelievably tasty!

I thought it was pretty tasty, and the texture was good. It seemed a little too onion-y to me. I'll definitely try it again, maybe reduce the amount of onion somewhat...
