Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Stir-fried pork, eggplant, and onions with garlic and black pepper

    • DJM on August 20, 2012

      An excellent stir fry recipe-one of the best I've ever made. I've made it using Thai basil instead of cilantro. Not as hot as one might think with the amount of ground black pepper and garlic.

  • Stir-fried pork, green beans, and red bell pepper with gingery oyster sauce

    • springandfall on September 13, 2015

      Cook's Illustrated's desire to discover something new, even in a cooking tradition as old as China's, doesn't always work. The garlic/ginger method is fussy; why not smash big pieces and toss them in oil at beginning as Chinese cooks have done for centuries? Also, why not cover and briefly steam-cook the green beans with a little extra broth after the initial searing/tossing, versus 5 minutes of active stir-frying? Overall, though, this is a tasty dish.

  • German apple pancake

    • ashallen on November 06, 2019

      This is a delicious treat - the batter has a slightly eggy flavor that reminds me of the inside of a popover and contrasts really nicely with the apple. Tender texture. The cast iron pan did a nice job browning the pancake and creating a crisp exterior edge. [Cross-post for Annual Edition/Magazine/Cook's Ill. Cookbook.]

  • Chocolate ganache frosting

    • ashallen on September 19, 2019

      Delicious (how can you go wrong with chocolate + cream...) and super-easy method. Yielded a very pretty, glossy frosting when used as-is vs. whipped. [Cross-post for Annual Edition/Magazine.]

  • Yellow cupcakes with chocolate ganache frosting

    • ashallen on August 06, 2019

      These were easy to make. They have excellent moistness and a flavor with a slight tang from the sour cream. I didn't have my ingredients at room temperature, though, and I think that might have caused a bit of gumminess in the texture. The chocolate ganache frosting was delicious and intensely chocolatey to the point that you couldn't really taste the cake once it was frosted! It'll be fun to experiment with other frosting flavors.
