Pad See Ew (Thai Noodles with Beef and Broccoli)
This is an Americanized version of a wonderful dish. There are important ingredients missing here and some extra steps that are not necessary. The water and cornstarch slurry is not needed. If you use brown sugar in place of white and do not use to much soy and other sauces a nice sauce will emerge in the end. Also no need to pre cook the broccoli, simply stir fry it the let it simmer in the sauce while meat cooks. Also no need for another extra dirty pan with cooking the egg, just push all ingredient aside while still stir frying and add egg too wok and quickly scramble in same pan. Also, where is the fresh cilantro to toss in at the end and the traditional thai chili sauce? A lot of extra work and missing ingredients.

Red Wine Reduction Steak Sauce
This is missing a few steps. To begin take all onions, shallots, and carrots and saute until golden brown in a couple tbs. EVOO. Next add mushrooms, two ribs celery (diced) and garlic (smashed). Saute until garlic is perfumed and deglaze pan with one quart beef or veal stock. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. To this add two sprigs fresh thyme, two bay leaves and about ten whole peppercorns and reduce this down by atleast half. Now add one bottle (750ml.) Of a good red wine (i prefer pinot noir) and reduce this down on a low simmer to half or coats the back of a spoon. Strain twice and hold warm for service.

Eggs Benedict with Salmon
Not eggs benedict. Not hollandaise sauce. Sounds like a low fat egg dish.
