Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This is an excellent, very tasty dish! Definitely one of the best pork dishes on this website. The Dijon Marsala sauce is simply amazing! However, I would not coat the pork tenderloin with Dijon mustard before browning the pork in a skillet; simply brown the pork tenderloin as is before putting it in the oven. Adding lemon pepper on top of the browned pork before inserting it in the oven might be an option. For the Dijon Marsala sauce, I would cut the amount of heavy cream by half since there was lots of sauce left. As I didn't have Marsala wine, I substituted it with sherry and it turned out absolutely great. Next time, I will included half a cup of chopped mushrooms to the Dijon Marsala sauce, which incidentally, compliments pork tenderloin very well. I do not see the Dijon Marsala sauce for chicken or steak; this sauce is made for pork only. I will definitely make this dish again!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This rice recipe is indeed 'restaurant' style. The sesame oil should be made mandatory rather than being optional. It really gives the impression that you're tasting Chinese fried rice. I will definitely do this recipe again. I may just include chopped mushrooms the next time I'll prepare this dish.

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This is an extraordinary dish! I followed the recipe as directed and it turned out great! The taste of the lime on the pork is absolutely remarkable. I added extra marinade on top of the pork tenderloin before inserting it in the oven at 400 degrees Farenheit for 30 minutes and it turned out to perfection. (Since it's winter and quite cold here in Ottawa, Canada, I couldn't use my bbq so I used the oven instead). I served this great dish with Asiago toasted cheese puffs (see recipe on allrecipes.com) along with risotto with artichokes! What a great combination!

Dutch Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
Excellent, very tasty potato recipe; definitely one of the best on this website. The sautéed onion (white onion) adds lots of taste to this wonderful potato recipe. I used baby carrots for this recipe, which made it quite easy to mash along with the potatoes. Since I like crumbled bacon, I will sauté it with the onion next time I make this dish. I will definitely make this tasty potato dish again.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
Very good chicken dish! The garlic cheese spread is excellent. However, there was too much Parmesan / bread crumbs mixture; the amount of Parmesan and bread crumbs should be cut in half. This dish compliments very well the Orange Rice Medley recipe from this website. Overall, this is an excellent recipe and I'll definitely make this tasty dish again.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
This is a very tasty chicken recipe. I followed the proportion for each ingredient as instructed and the honey mustard marinade turned out great. However, instead of grilling the chicken on the BBQ, I cooked the chicken in the oven for 40 minutes at 400 degrees in a 9' by 13' pan. Safe to say, the chicken turned out great. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Marinated Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
Here's an update to my review! I did this excellent peppers recipe again last night and wow, it was very tasty! Here's the rest of my review from May 2, 2007: Excellent! I wanted to make an exclamation mark for a dinner party I hosted for a friend and thought of marinated peppers. My parents and girlfriend were also at the dinner party and safe to say, everyone enjoyed this dish. Since then, my girlfriend has prepared the marinade for the peppers on numerous occasions for our bbq's this past summer.

Chicken Angelo

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Excellent, tasty chicken dish! This recipe is so easy and simple to make. The proportion for each ingredient in this recipe is perfect. The cream of chicken soup and Muenster cheese go very well with each other. May I suggest the addition of canned, sliced mushrooms and thinly sliced green onion on top of the Muenster cheese before adding the cream of chicken soup in order to add more taste and color to this wonderful dish. However, the recipe is excellent as it is. I will definitely make this excellent chicken recipe again.

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
5 stars? Heck, make that 5000 stars for this most fascinating and mouth-watering recipe!! I have had my share of wonderful chicken recipes but this recipe definitely takes the cake; it is definitely on the top of my list! Fine dining / restaurant quality for sure! There is nothing to change about this most exceptional recipe other than the fact that I added lemon pepper to the chicken broth mixture as suggested in some of the reviews. I also added extra flour coating on the chicken breasts as it was cooking in the skillet to increase the 'thickness' of the coating and it turned out great. May I suggest the addition of chopped fresh mushrooms to the chicken broth mixture. But again, it's only a suggestion since the recipe is perfectly fine as it is. Cudos to the creator of this stunning recipe! Safe to say, I will definitely make this dish again but this time, it will be for friends and family.

Flank Steak with Horseradish Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Excellent! Very tasty dish! One of the best steak recipes on allrecipes.com. The dijon / Worcestershire / garlic marinade is superb and so is the horseradish sauce! I doubled the amount of horseradish and the horseradish sauce turned out great. However, there was tons of horseradish sauce left and consequently, I would cut by half the suggested proportions. Nevertheless, this is an excellent steak recipe; I will definitely make it again!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This review has been updated. EXCELLENT! Yes, I'm shouting but for all the right reasons. It was so easy and simple to make and it came out very tasty. The sour cream should be included as a 'mandatory' ingredient since it adds a bit more flavor. Next time, as a suggestion to those who like their food spicy as I do, I'll add finely chopped chili peppers and mix them in the salsa sauce before pouring it over the chicken. I'll definitely make this simple yet tasty dish again. Kudos to the creator of this wonderful recipe.

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Excellent recipe! I love my food spicy and this dish hit the spot! I had extra chili powder for good measure and wow, it was spicy! It goes well with a side-dish of ranch potatoes and steamed veggies.

Lemon Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Very good rice recipe as a result of modifying it. I added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice along with a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper to add flavor (for 4 servings). I strongly recommend that the lemon pepper and lemon juice be added to this recipe; if not, it will be bland.

Peppered Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
This is a very good recipe. I followed the proportions of the steak marinade as instructed and it turned out very tasty. It had an excellent 'peppery' bite to it. If you like your marinade a bit spicy, may I suggest the addition of a small amount of hot chili powder to the mix to intensify the 'peppery' taste of the marinade. That being said, the marinade is fine as it is. Since I like my steak medium to well done, I broiled each side of the steak for 5 minutes each before broiling the first side once again for an additional 3 minutes. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Wow! What an exceptional steak recipe! Definitely one of the best steak recipes on allrecipes.com. The red wine / garlic sauce is absolutely stunning. I skipped the salt, sugar and shallots and added extra wine to make the sauce stronger in taste and added also extra brandy simply for maximum effect. Although the black peppercorn is an excellent ingredient, may I suggest capers as a possible replacement for those who don't like their steak too spicy. Safe to say, I will definitely make this stunning recipe again. Congratulations to the creator of this tasty dish!

Pork with Mushroom Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This is a stunning, very tasty, restaurant quality pork recipe! Truly a 5 star rating! I added a bit more Dijon mustard and it turned out great! My girlfriend was raving about this dish and so was I! The mushroom Dijon sauce is unbelievable and it suits perfectly pork tenderloin. I accompanied this dish with Dijon mashed potatoes and Cajun deviled eggs, also with Dijon as an ingredient, as an appetizer, along with the juicy tomatoes fried in basil and thyme! DELICIOUS!! I will definitely make this dish again!

Gina's Lemon Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This is a very tasty recipe. It was very simple to make as it took me less than 5 minutes to prepare it. This is a great recipe to make especially if you're short on time to prepare a meal. I put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mixed them up before adding it on both sides of the chicken. Of note, the proportion for each of the ingredients - lemon pepper, garlic powder and onion powder - had to be increased to make sure the chicken was well coated. Further, to ensure the chicken was properly cooked, I put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Safe to say, this was a very tasty dish and as mentioned, it was very easy to make. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Peppercorn-Seasoned Steaks with Mustard-Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Excellent steak recipe! One of the best from allrecipes! The mustard wine sauce mixture is fantastic! May I suggest the addition of a teaspoon of olive oil as you add in the butter in the mustard wine sauce to thicken the sauce. I will definitely do this recipe again!

Red, Juicy, Herb-Fried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a tasty dish. This is my second time preparing this tasty dish. In my first review, I suggested to reduce the amount of basil and thyme by half. Instead of white pepper, I used black pepper. I used cherry tomatoes instead of plum or Roma tomatoes and I dipped them in the basil and thyme mixture before frying them in a wok in olive oil. It turned out great! I accompanied this pleasant side-dish with Dijon mashed potatoes, pork in mushroom Dijon sauce and Cajun deviled eggs, which contain lots of Dijon. Great combination! Great meal!

Mushroom Onion Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This is a good rice recipe and is very easy and simple to make. It's an excellent rice dish for a bbq. May I make two suggestions for this recipe: 1. cut by half the amount of water and 2. add finely chopped green onion. I will definitely make this recipe for another bbq down the road.
