Sirloin Marinara

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
I used Mid's Pasta Sauce, added fresh mushrooms, fresh oregano, basil, and parsley. I also used about a cup of merlot. The meat was very tender. A new twist on my old spaghetti sauce. Served with pasta instead of garlic mashed. Very good!

Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I changed this recipe a bit. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, and I added water and 1/2 can tomato paste to thicken it a bit. I had some fresh mushrooms in the fridge so I put those in too. I left the salt in the recipe and used lots of cayenne pepper. Then I cut up the chicken in pieces and threw it in the pan with the sauce and simmered for a while. We ate this over rice and it was delicious. If its too hot for your taste, just add sour cream to your plate to cool it down.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
This was really good! We used black beans instead of re-fried, and a fresh jalapeno instead of green chili, and a Mexican blend cheese. You can make it as spicy as you like. The flour tortillas were a little mushy so next time I might try crunchy corn tostada shells instead.

Bratwurst Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Two cans of chicken broth was not enough, more like 4 cans. Also, I had to bring it back up to a boil for the cabbage to cook. I used fresh basil, and went heavy on the other spices and added black pepper. Other than that, this was very good. Like a boiled dinner without the potatoes.

Autumn Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was surprisingly good. I omitted the cranberry, used fresh nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, 2 Cups of apple cider, a little OJ and a little sweet vermouth. I had some onions left over from another meal that were sauteed with cider vinegar so I added those as well. I browned the chops then poured the sauce in the pan and braised for 1-1/2 hours. Very tender with a light apple flavor. Served over rice.

Pesto Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
really good. I made it with chicken and bowtie pasta, but I think it would be better with linguine or fettucine.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Awesome! The only thing I did different was I had no celery so I didn't put that in and I added a little tomato paste to made the gravy thicker. It was excellent and I will make this again.

Orange Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Really different. I loved it! I used pork loin instead of tenderloin, cut it in paper thin strips, and used ground ginger instead of fresh. I also used the juice of one orange and a splash of bottled juice and doubled the recipe for the sauce. Served with brown rice.

I had 1 lb. of sirloin and 1 lb. of chuck steak, simmered for almost 2 hours and the meat was sooooo tender. I served it over rice with french style green beans on the side and crusty bread.I will definitely make this again!
