Hungarian Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
I made this dish exactly by the recipe and was very disappointed with the results. When I tasted the gravy about halfway through cooking, it was too sour... perhaps too much sherry, along with the vinegar in the ketchup. So I added about 1/2 cup more of sour cream, but that didn't improve the taste. It was rather bland and still sour. I added a little rosemary because I thought it needed some kind of herb other than the bay leaf, as well as salt and pepper, a pinch of garlic and a little more paprika. Still not very good. I strongly urge others not to waste good pork chops on this recipe!

Broccoli Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This is the ideal recipe for folks who like a toned-down, blander version of Chinese food. I added about half a cup of thin onion strips to the veggies, which added some much-needed flavor. I would also suggest doubling the sauce recipe because this barely made enough sauce to cover the veggies and meat, so it was rather dry. Also, be sure after you’ve browned your meat and garlic to drain it! This should have been mentioned in the recipe because less experienced cooks might follow it word-for-word and end up with a greasy mess. Overall, this was an easy-to-make, hearty meal, but I’ll try for something with a little more zing next time.
