Cornell Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
made this weekend trying to replicate the local Lions Club Chicken BBQ, and guess what? This was it! Now I have the secret recipie...so funny this simple concoction is the secret behind all the chicken sold at these charity BBQ's across the country. I followed recipie as written except I cut back the salt by 1/2, and it was perfect - I marinated in a zip lock bag overnight - close to 24 hours. then grilled with fresh batch of marinade to baste with frequently. Results were great - family loved it. Leftovers were great cold for lunch! Will for sure make again, but may follow suggestion of another review and add some lemon juice and hot sauce.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This is a great and pretty easy hot beef sandwich. I followed the recipe exactly except I used 1.5 packs of the italian dressing seasoning mix, and based on other reviews, I omitted the salt. I used a 5.5 lb tip roast from Costco, that I cut into 3 big chunks to lay in the pot. I was worried it wouldn't shred easily, but after cooking 8 hours on low in the crock pot, it feel apart. I did use the 12 hour setting on low, but it was pretty much done by 8 or 9 hours. Right before serving, I sauteed some peppers and onions to top the sandwiches with, I also put a dish of hot pepper rings out for those that wanted to add a little kick. I loaded up the buns (use a good quality bakery bun or sub bun, the cheap hamburger buns will fall apart ) with the meat, the peppers, then topped it with some swiss or mozzerella cheese and threw it under the broiler for a minute to melt the cheese. These were very good and got rave reviews from the house full of company I had. The scent of the beef cooking all night in the crock pot is incredible. Go for it, you wont be disappointed.

Also added 4 cloves crushed garlic, onion powder, oregano, basil, parsley to the meat mixture and to the sauce I added 1bout 1/2 to 3/4 can of tomato soup to extend the sauce a bit.

Barbecued Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This was very good and very easy. I put a good coat of a homemade BBQ rub on the meat the night before and let it sit in the fridge till the next day. Before I put it in the crock pot, I charred both sides on my gas grill with high heat to brown the meat, give it a 'frilled flavor. The I put it in the crock pot, cut up and onion and smoe fresh garlic and cooked it on low for 8 hours. After cooking and slicing ( it really falls apart nicely ) I gave it a good coating of the sauce that I heated up. Family all loved it, I'll make it again. Pretty easy.

Chinese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
i liked this a lot, but added a few touches that made it better. First, added about a 1/2 of a large green pepper to the onion and celery, that's a must. Make sure to use the low salt Soy....it's pretty salty ( but still good ) with regular soy sauce. Also I added some ginger, fresh garlic and brown sugar to the sauce while simmering. I needed to add more corn starch and water to get the sauce to thicken up like I like, but it was worth it. The veggies cooked down with the sauce served over the pork and (brown) some rice is delicious. I think simmering the pork for more than 30 minutes is too much, my pork ( thick Costco boneless chops) were a little too well done after 35 minutes, but again, still delicious. I will make this again.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I really liked this, and it couldnt be any easier. Only thing I did different is I uses a 4.5 lb pork Boston butt roast. I coated the meat with my home made BBQ rub and put it in a ziplock with a bottle of good root beer (I used Frosty). I let that sit overnight. Next morning I tossed the roast into the crock pot with a fresh bottle of root beer, some fresh minced garlic and some liquid smoke and cooked on low for about 6 hours. This is where you have to watch not to over cook it. Some people complained it was 'mushy', I assume from being overcooked. I turned the roast as it cooked and broke it up as I went. When it was cooked I dumped the liquids, shredded the meat ( tossing as much of the fat as I could pull out. Then put back in crock with a bottle of Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce and cooked another. I've cooked pulled pork before, and this was the best results. Served with home made baked beans and a salad for a true BBQ feast. I'll make again.

Chili Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
I'd rate this 4.5 stars if I could. It's a very good altenative to your normal BBQ chicken on the grill. The sauce ends up having almost a 'italian' or pasta sauce kind of tase, combined with the grill charring gives it a very tasty unique spin on chicken on the grill. I did follow some other reviewers tips and added some brown sugar and some crusher red pepper flakes and a splash of cider vinegar to give it a little kick. I made a big batch of bonelsee skinless thighs and breasts and some drumsticks. I ended up making a additional 1/2 serving of the sauce for the basting on the grill, glad I did thatl. Everyone loved it. Definitely would make this again. I marinated in the sauce about 3 - 4 hours prior to grilling. Would suggest the longer the better.

Southwestern Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
this is a good wasy basic casserole. I'd make it again, especially in cold weather. I follwed tips from the reviews and added extra chili powder and cumin, garlic and some taco seasoning. I used more macaroni than called for, 2 cans beans, 1 black bean, 1 light red kidney beans. I also added diced green pepper and chipolte corn. This does make a lot. I'll be curious to see how the fozen one reheats when we use it in a week or two.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
These were good, but I didnt think 5 stars worth of good. My family likled them, and eveb ate all the grilled vegtables, but I was a little dissappointed. I'll make them again, but will try to let the chicken marinate longer. I did about 3 hours this time, could stand a lot more time marinating in my opinion.

Drunken Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Very good but it's lots more work for no real reason. Just use some olive oil and some fresh garlic, let sit for a few minutes then use a veggie grill basket and toss on the grill. cook to desired doneness. Much easier and basically the same delicious results. the wine and brown mustard added very little additional flavor to the process in my opinion. It was good, just not so much better than just olive oil and fresh garlic to be worth the trouble of extra ingredients and the 2 hour marinade.
