Are Those Facebook Video Recipes Any Good?
We've all seen something like this come across our Facebook feed.
Well, I decided to try to make one of these recipes and see if they are as tasty as they look.
I made the above recipe, One Pot Chicken Teriyaki and Rice. I gathered all my ingredients and went about my business.
It was relatively easy. I followed the printed out recipe that I found when you click on the link. The biggest thing that was left out of the recipe was when to add the vegetables. I got to the very last step and still had all my chopped vegetables sitting there so I just tossed them in last minute. I threw the lid on and they still got a good steam, so it all worked out. I double backed through the written recipe and there was no step for adding the vegetables, however, the video did. I guess I'll know for next time.
I have to say, I've tried to make Asian inspired dishes at home before and I didn't think it ever really turned out well, but this one actually did. The cornstarch really did help thicken the sauce. It turned out a bit spicier than I thought it would. Next time a little less sriracha for me.
So, next time maybe try one of these recipes instead of just liking it on Facebook.
P.S. Please excuse my messy stove. I had a spill. Forgive me.
