Reviewed Grilled Flatbread with Garlic Rubbed Fillet of Beef, White Bean Puree and Sun-dried Tomato Chutney

"It turned out great, but there are a couple of errors in the recipe. The most glaring being the omission of sugar in the flat bread recipe. Just putting yeast into warm water will never proof and the bread will never rise and you could wait four hours and end up with nothing that could be grilled. The second error, in my opinion, is specifying 8 o"

"I am a decent home cook. I make a hundred or so new recipes per year, usually pretty successfully. I was somewhat skeptical about this one because eggplant soaks up liquids like a sponge and I was right because if you follow the directions you end up with eggplant soup.
