Iowa Pork Steak My Way

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Excellent. made some minor changes. The markets steaks were too thin, so we subbed with nice inch and a quarter thick boneless pork chops. Used a mixture of Olive oil and Sesame oil rather than vegetable oil. Julianed a medium red onion rather than chopping. Used a mixture of Balsamic vinegar and Sherry in place of the water. Used button mushrooms rather than sliced (So the wife could pick them out as she can't eat them but likes the flavor of them), didn't have any onion soup mix so used a packet of pork flavored Ramen powder mix. Also after browning the chops, Moved them into a crockpot. Sauted the onion in the same oil mixture, then transferred them to thetop of the chops, added the shrooms and the sauce mixture and cooked on high for six and a half hours. Came out extremely moist and fork tender. And the gravy was absolutely perfect. Paired with the Lemon-Butter Red Potatoes from this site. If there was ever a 10 star rateing, this would get it.

Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
Did this for a side dish with dinner yesterday, and used Souza'sGirl 'double dip' method. Also did not have canola oil, so used a mixture of sesame and vegetable oils. Worked out fine. Also added a little Garlic Powder and Onion Powder to the bread crumbs. First time I've had eggplant in over 70 years. Seems to be a keeper.

Even though I made some changes it rates the stars. I used Red Snapper instead of trout. Used Sesame seed oil instead of olive oil, and as suggested by other reviewers, sprinkled on dry Dill Weed. Came out fantastic. Got raves from every one.

Spaghetti with Tomato and Sausage Sauce ll

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I can only give this two stars because I made too many changes to the recipe, but the basic concept is great. First I down sized it to 4 servings, used ground Italian mild Sausage, left out the mushrooms because the wife can't tolerate them. Usaed a full 6-oz. can of tomato paste, Could not find a 12-oz. can of tomato juice, so used tomato sauce instead, and used a 15-oz. can of Petit Dice Tomatoes. Didn't have any Burgundy wine so used what I had on hand, 1/4 cup of GOOD Sherry. Cut the sugar to 1 Tbs. and used the listed amount of the dried spices. Turned out absolutely fantastic. Best spaghetti sauce we have ever had. Wife says it's a definite keeper.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I followed my coustom directions With the following changes. I used sliced RED onion.I reversed the quantities on the Sherry and water. Also I find that 30 minutes is too long in the oven, causes the chops to be a little dry. Next time I will only do 20 minutes. And The gravy is awesome. When placeing the ingredients in the baking dish, use the following proceedure. Sauted onions, pork chops, then the gravy mixture. Place in 350 deg. oven for 20 minutes.

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Would rate higher, but made a change or two. Did't have cider vinegar so subbed with half & half rice & Balsamic vinegars. Also found it to be a little salty, so toned it down a bit by adding some Tony Romas Carolina Honeys to it. Wife said it came out "Quite tasty". Translation "It's a KEEPER"
