World's Best Lasagna
"World's best"? Depends on where else you've eaten I think. For this complicated a lasagna recipe I found it bland, almost tasteless given the amount of effort involved, even with the best quality ingredients. The point of tomato, tomato sauce and tomato paste escapes me, for canned I'd use San Marzano type and separate out the liquid, adding back as required. The fennel seed was an inspired addition. But really, where's that 4th cheese?

Cuban Ropa Vieja
After I read the comments about "tastelessness", I seasoned the meat before browning with salt and pepper. And second, when I re-read the recipe, I thought maybe the author forgot to write in Oregano. I added 2 tsp. Worked well.
