Turkey Frame Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Wow!-5th time we made this. Great every time. We use the carcass from the rosemary roasted turkey recipe also from allrecipes. We use up to 2 gallons of bottled water in a 16qt pot because our carcass comes from a 25lb+ turkey cut in small pieces (use the neck-toss the giblets). We treat this as a double recipe. We always seem to have extra carrots and celery that we end up tossing so we have found that by tripling the ingredients except the parsley in the beginning really deepens the flavor. It gets strained in the beginning so the veggies are only used for the broth (save some carrots for the final Soup). Be VERY choosy when deciding what meat to use for the soup, the last thing you want is skin/gristle/fat/bone in your final soup. We cut it into 2" pieces when possible then shred it. Don't be shy when skimming the fat. We remove about 1/2" from the top when skimming the gelatinous gold broth. We found that using a large table spoon instead of a slotted worked best, easier to handle and picked out large chunks instead of breaking it up. For us the right amount of seasoning is about 1/4c of kosher salt (or 1/8c table salt) and 1/4c black pepper. We like it spicy so unless you want it with some zip you may want to cut back on the pepper. After adding the beans/peas we just turn off the heat. There is enough residual heat to warm them through, otherwise they get mushy. After all is said and done we end up with about 9-10qts of soup. Serve it on some whole grain pasta-Yummy!

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
We like it spicy. We use a black pepper/olive oil injection along with this and it comes out great. We mix 1/8c fine ground pepper (not fresh ground from a pepper mill because it will clog the needle) and 1/2c olive oil. Do the rosemary rub first then inject it. Let it marinate overnight and bake-Yum! Use the carcass for "Turkey frame vegetable soup" The recipe is also found on Allrecipies.

Prize-Winning Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2005
Outstanding!, I added an extra egg to help hold it together. I also used ground sirlon (93% lean) and there was a world of difference in the flavor from my first loaf which was 80% lean. On one of the loafs I slathered some steak sauce on the top and it came out great! -skip

Beef in Bay Leaf Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
We liked this. It was a unique flavor. We added potatoes and used a fig balsamic vinegar and it came out very good. If we would have used white vinegar it would not have been very good. I would suggest any balsamic vinegar or at least a red wine vinegar . White vinegar is pretty harsh and is used often for cleaning coffee pots. ANY higher quality vinegar will improve this dish. We also doubled all the veggies. this recipe makes a lot of sauce. We reduced the extra sauce with some tapioca and it made a great sauce that we used on baked pork chops a few days later.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
We followed the recipe as instructed and we felt that it needed to be cooked for several more hours. The beef was still rubbery and chewy after only two and half hours. We removed the veggies and placed the beef with the broth in a slow cooker and cooked it for about 8 more hours on low and it came out great! The next time we do this we will plan for it to stay in the oven for at least 4-6 hours. We will also increase the stout to 3 bottles. The veggies came out extremely yummy!

Hawaiian Fish with Pineapple

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I did not like this at all. I give it 2 stars because my girlfriend liked it. I thought it was bland. She liked it because you could taste the fish and it wasn't killed with seasonings. I thought 2 cups of lemon juice was overkill. The basil and thyme just floated around. the fish was completely submerged in liquid. I won't make this again
