What is your most requested recipe?

Ok - I'm pretty new to posting so I'm not sure that I am putting this in the right place. I'd like to know if you have a recipe that family and friends keep asking for - the one that keeps getting shared way past your immediate circle. Mine is a barbequed chipotle beef brisket that is so simple that even my friends who don't like to cook have started making it. They make if for their friends and family and the recipe keeps getting shared. We serve it with corn pancakes so you get a little sweet mixed with the hot brisket but a lot of the people I have shared it with have started their own variations.

Simple is the way to go! Might we persuade you to post it to RecipeGullet?

Great topic, llc45! I thought that I had an answer "right off the bat", but now realize that I have a few to choose between. Perhaps the one that people ask for the most is a Fattoush salad. Whenever we take it to a pot-luck, take it to someone's house to add to a dinner, or serve it here, people always ask for the recipe. Actually when whenever we make it, we find it difficult not to eat most of it right then.

By the way, we are always trying different brisket recipes, meeting with various results. The best is still what my dad used to make, which is more along the lines of an Eastern European pot-roasty brisket. We are looking for more of a smoked or BBQ style. How about sharing your most requested recipe?

This could be fun!

Ironically, it would be me tuna casserole. I make it with linguine and add home-made curry powder and tarragon to the cheese sauce. It's become my most-requested dish of all time. I invented it right off the top of my head about 11 years ago.

Ok I added the recipes for both chipotle beef brisket and corn pancakes to recipegullet. I kind of wing the pancakes so I hope I got the proportions right. Sorry I don't know how to do a link. The responses so far have been great. Looking forward to hearing some more!! Oh wait, I just realized that I didn't add the egg to the corncakes. Let me go back and figure out how to fix that.

What a great topic! I'll have to think about which recipe gets asked-for most.

The Chipotle Beef Brisket sounds wonderful! Do you also have cooking directions for those of us who don't have a crockpot?

I am looking forward to trying some of these recipes. I remember wanting to try the foccacia when I saw it on egullet sometime in the past. Thanks for reminding me!

SuziSushi - Originally, I did the whole thing in a dutch oven - brown the meat, then do the onions add the chile sauce and then the other ingredients. Then put it in the oven with a lid and bake on 325 or 350 for 2 to 2.5 hrs. I remember that I always cooked for longer and sometimes just simmered on the stovetop instead. Just keep checking the meat until your sure that it is tender. Since I get asked to bring it to parties even in the summer, the beauty of the crockpot is that I can cook it on the back porch and keep the heat out of the kitchen and the whole house doesn't smell like brisket for days. :biggrin:

UnConundrum - I browsed that focaccia recipe and found that the portions are weighed and not in cups. Would you happen to have the measurement in cups/tbsps.?

My most requested recipe is my apple pie... and perfectly chocolate cake.

Most requested recipe from eGullet that my friend's request is AhLeung's Mapo Tofu.

We have a conversion page HERE. We're hoping to a a conversion option to a page, but I just haven't had time to work on it for some time. The conversion page was building the database and math, so we're close, but for not it's still manual.

Hi LLC45 -- Your recipe sounds delicious -- one question -- I don't know what "chili sauce" is (I'm assuming its not hot sauce, since there are 12 ounces of it!) Is there a brand you use that I could look for? And do you find it in the same area as hot sauces? Or is it more with the ketchup type stuff...

Thanks!

:wub: I'm sooo embarrassed to admit that I had to ask my husband. I do all the cooking and he does the "big" weekly grocery shopping. I hate supermarkets - I do most of my shopping at little local farm stands and butchers because I don't like searching for things and waiting in long lines. In any event, it is by the ketchup. I checked the ones in my pantry and they are Shop Rite brand but I know I usually have Heinz.

My most-asked-for recipe doesn't have a name, or even a recipe, really. I just marinate some boneless, skinless chicken thighs with garlic, lemon zest and juice, fresh thyme sprigs, and olive oil. Then, throw them on the grill. Simple party-pleaser! If I want to get fancy, I use breast meat cut up and skewered. :cool:

The family has come to call it "Greek chicken", but I'm not sure how accurate that is...

That sounds simple, delicious and Greek to me! If you really want to put on the dog, give it a side of tzatziki!

My most requested recipe is my "mona's meaty minestrone" soup. It's been passed halfway across the country!
