Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
Just cooked this recipe and I found it to be very good. I followed some of the suggestions on this site and added less wine (1 1/2 cups), and a couple of tablespoons of Heinz Cream of Mushroom soup. I also used lean steak cubes as opposed to stewing steak which made the meat melt-in-the-mouth tender. However, when I cook this recipe again I would add more wine as opposed to less,as I found that the taste of the burgendy was drowned somewhat. I would also not add the mushroom soup as this made the sauce too rich for my liking. The only change I would suggest making to the original recipe is that less butter is needed when browning the meat as such a large amount is not needed with a non-stick pan. All in all a fab recipe that is best left unchanged IMHO. Sarah (UK)

Apple Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2003
I found this recipe far to sweet for my tastes. I may have got the recipe wrong as being British, I had no idea what 'hard cider water' was I assumed you meant dry cider so this was what I added. Smelled lovely while it was cooking though

Apple Crunch Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2003
I am not an experienced cook and this was the first pie recipe I have ever attempted. I have to say that this was by far the best apple pie I have EVER tasted and I was astounded that i'd cooked the thing myself. I subsituted Granny Smiths for English Braberns as I felt that UK Granny Smiths don't have enough tartness for my liking.
