    "Great recipe. I bought a great five pound prime rib (2 ribs serving 4 people) from my local butcher. Pretty pricey, but so worth it. Instead of inserting cloves of garlic into the meat the night before (I totally forgot), I heated up 2 tbsps of extra virgin olive oil along with six cloves of garlic (with skin), once the oil was infused with the ..."

    "My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. We typically make turkey meatballs, but figured we would change it up a little with this recipe. The meatballs were moist and juicy, thanks to the sautéed onions and throwing them into the oven for 15 minutes. My Notes would be to put the meatballs in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to frying, o..."

    "This was a wonderful, silky, rich recipe for boneless short ribs. Lucky for my husband and I, we came across this recipe and had all the ingredients on hand. A couple minor tweaks, include used extra virgin olive oil (instead of canola oil), beef stock (instead of chicken stock), omitted the rosemary, doubled carrots and celery and added 1 tbsp s..."

    "Very good recipe, its light, sweet and tangy. I used peanut oil and omitted the sesame seeds and scallions. Next time, like most fellow reviewers, I'll use honey instead of sugar and cut back on the oil (1/2 cup is a tad too much). Added to a mixed greens salad, with white onions, grape tomatoes and avocado (so yummy with the ginger/garlic t..."

    "Another great appetizer from Barefoot. The creamy gorgonzola partnered beautifully with the peppers, capers and basil. I definitely suggest using fresh basil, over dried basil. It was a beautiful finishing touch. Chef, thank you for sharing."

I bought 2.5 pd filet of beef, lathered it with butter and used plenty of salt and pepper to cover all surfaces. I cooked it exactly to 22 minutes and covered as directed. The filet was expensive, but well worth it. ..."

    "Great recipe!!!! I used 2 cups cremini mushrooms sliced, and added 1 cup oyster mushrooms sliced. I heated 2 cups beef stock, red wine and soy sauce, before adding to the mushroom and flour mixture. I found that heating the fluids before adding to butter/flour mixture helps the thickening process, as well as, preventing the taste of flour. I did..."
