Was very very good, I subbed chicken stock with a squeeze of lemon for the white wine, cut back on the butter two four tablespoons, used the dripping of the pan from frying the pork, tossed in some garlic and chopped onions then add some cremini mushrooms and sauteed. Then added the stock lemon, cornstarch and water together mixed and added it to the pan. Overall my hubby said yummy make it again..not enough gravy. oh well will have to double it next time.

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
We couldnt find plain yougurt to save our souls the day I went to make this. TWO trips to the store and two containers of vanilla yougurt. So the Queen of improvision. I used One cup thick sourcream, 3/4 cup mayo, one grated cucumber squeezed of excess water, four good size cloves of garlic, about twoish tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 2ish teaspoons of dill ( I think that they both really depends on your taste ) pinch of black pepper to round out. I mixed it all together and got what really reminded me of the sauce I got back in college when I discovered greek food. The family loved it and want me to to keep it in the fridge for everything from dipping veggies to using on baked potatos.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
We loved it. I made it for a gathering. I did change the recipe slightly. I used 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/8 cup low sodium soy, the juice of one lemon, basil, italian seasoning, pepper to taste and 1 tablespoon worchestshiire sauce. With about 2.5 pounds of boneless pork ribs cut into 1 1/5 inch cubes into a large gallon ziplock baggie and marinated for about three hours or so. I cooked them on the grill for about eight to twelve minutes turning once. We served them on tortillas with homemade tzatzski sauce, red onion, tomato and lettuce. They where amazingly like what I get in my favorite greek resturant. Hubby says "Make thme again!!"

I love that it doesnt use any cream. I have to watch sodium intake and limit my dairy. I used low sodium chicken stock, onions, added some tyme, garlic, a dash of red peppers and sage. It was great, the family didnt even notice that there was no milk in it. This will be my go too potato recipe.

Butter Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
I did it like others, cut the butter to 1.4 cup, but floured the beef with about seasoned flour, cumin, garlic, dash of nutmeg and a little all saltfree table seasoning, then browned it off in a little olive oil and then used one large onion diced and sweated in the beef pan, then diced mushrooms, 1 cup of burgandy wine to deglaze the pan and all into the slow cooker with some worchester a little more garlic spice and some pepper, then a packet of brown gravy mix and 1/cup of water.. Lovely easy quick sort of beef burgandy flavor. Serving it with some mash potatos..and fresh peas.
