Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
I cooked this up for a party yesterday exactly as given. No changes. It came out perfect. I was asked by many for the recipe. One lady simply hollered "Ouch, them's goooood beans." I doubled the recipe to feed 20. Only about 15 ate and the beans ran out early. I'm not a big baked bean fan, but this I loved. I highly recommend. It WILL be a hit.

Peking Duck

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
While I'm not a big duck fan, my spouse is. She and her girlfriends devoured this duck and loved it! I cooked it exactly as given in the recipe. The plum sauce went over big, also. If you like duck you will love this recipe.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Quick and easy to prepare. Very tasteful, but a bit thin. Still a very good chili recipe. We enjoyed it. Great with buttered bread to soak up the chili.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
I marinated and grilled some ribeyes using this recipe exactly as given, except for the smoke flavoring, which I don't care for, and it turned out excellent. I grilled them over lump hardwood charcoal and LOVED the results. This is in my recipe box and will be used again, and again, and again.....

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
Cooked this up the other night. I threw in a half pound of fresh sliced mushrooms. The results were excellent. Got it in my recipe box and plan to use it often. Thanks.

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2006
I fried up this chicken exactly as given. Turned out perfect. Very tender and juicy. A forgiving recipe that can be easily altered to one's tastes. The secret is in applying the coating. Follow the coating instructions exactly and fry at 350 degrees. You can't miss with this one. Eat at once as it is so juicy inside that it loses is crispiness after freezing. Still tastes great, though.

McCormick's Beer Can Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
As usual, McCormick's Grill Mates has provided a product that is simply great. I find that the Grill Mates line is a staple for outdoor grills. I love their products and always look forward to their new additions.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2006
Excellent! I had some doubts on this recipe, but this turned into the rotisserie taste that I pay premium bucks for at market. I followed the recipe exactly, basting only once. I cooked a 3 1/2 lb. chicken for two hours at 300-325 degrees. It came out absolutely PERFECT. Make NO changes. Trust this recipe. It is the real deal.

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
I'm sorry, this one just didn't do it for me. The meat was a bit bland. The sauce was too sweet. Needs a little jazzing up. Probably good for folks on a medical diet or with a sweet tooth.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
Very good side. I made extras and nuked some cheese on top. Really, really good. Could be the main dish. I loved it. Will make again and again.

Grilled Rosemary Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
Once again McCormick's gives me what I want. I used some 2" filets for this and I fresh picked and dried the rosemary, myself. Absolutely tops! A-one!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I cooked these exactly as given and found them bland, though, I did like them. Made another batch with 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Worked for me. Added a little flavor without really detracting from the blend of ingredients. Liked it enough to make two more batches and froze them in Foodsaver bags for later.

Savory Montreal Steak Rub

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
Absolutely wonderful variegation of the Montreal Steak seasoning. I doubled the quantity as I used it on a small boneless rib roast. I slow grilled to medium rare and it came out perfect. My bride raved on it and I truly loved it, also. It's in my box.

Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Having spent considerable time in various eateries throughout South Korea, salivating over Gal-Bi, and missing it, I was brought back with this recipe. Thank you. I sent some with my spouse, to serve to an elderly Korean girl friend of hers. It definitely passed the test. She loved it. She offered a suggestion...Pepsi. She told me to add Pepsi! I added about a quarter can to the recipe and it rocks! Either way it's a great, great Korean taste to die for.

Acapulco Margarita Grouper

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I have used this recipe with red grouper, red drum (redfish), and black drum. It turns out to be pretty labor intensive and the liquor ups the price of all of the ingredients. The grouper was purchased fresh and I followed the recipe exactly. The result of an afternoon of cubra libras and prepping the dish was a wonderful meal. Truly excellent with rice and an Asian vegetable dish. I caught the red drum and black drum on separate occasions and had great afternoons prepping them as I did the grouper and they were also fantastic. Follow the recipe, use fresh fish, fresh salsa, and enjoy!

Spicy Cabbage Kimchi

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I love, love, love kimchi. This came out a little salty for me so I cut the salt in half. It still drew the water out of the cabbage leaves and it all reduced well. I thought that I would get a little creative and added sesame oil for an additional flavor. My Korean friends told me to eat the kimchi quickly as oil will cause it to spoil. How do you spoil fermented (spoiled) cabbage? Anyway, it tasted great, but I didn't feel like eating two quarts of kimchee that quickly. My friends were happy with that. If you have ever heard the term "kimchi breath" you'll know what I mean. As a previous reviewer stated, I hated kimchee at first, particularly the smell of it. But now I crave it. I'll eat it with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. By the way, a serving is like a quarter cup. Small, but loaded with flavor.

Glenn's Marinated Pork Shoulder

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly and I grilled an 8 lb. pork shoulder over an indirect 300-350 degree gas fire. It took about 5 hours to cook to 160 degrees. The outside was over done but the inside was GREAT! I will make it again and allot more cooking time. As an added bonus, the leftover meat made superb cold sandwiches.

Super Summer Grilled Bluefish

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I don't like bluefish. I love to catch 'em. Only people raised on a fish diet truly enjoy them. No longer! I caught a 7 lb. blue. Filleted it and marinated it as the recipe called for. The fish grilled and browned up easily. It really did get firm and flaky (Unlike the bluefish that I remember.). It came out tasting a bit sour, which can be corrected, but the important part of this review is that, because of this recipe, the bluefish tasted great and is now on my official list of "Likes".

Beer Brisket

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was my first attempt at a brisket and, boy, did I pick the right one. As always, I followed the recipe exactly as written and I chose Mickey's Big Mouth Malt Liquor. I can tell you that I was FLOORED by this brisket! The only reason that I did not rate it 5 stars is that I thought the black pepper was excessive. Very spicy. Next time I will cut it back half. My family, however, LOVED it with the full quantity of pepper. So, it's just a matter of personal taste. Trust me. Fast to prepare. Easy to cook. Delicious!
