Tired of searching for Johnny Carino's Copycat Recipes?
Why do you want Johnny Carino's Copycat Recipes? I bet I know....
Have you ever visited a restaurant and come away from it asking: "just how do they make those
dishes?" I'm sure you sat there trying to uncover just what has gone into the dish, what sort of ingredients
they're using.. Maybe you have even tried to ask the waiter or the chef for the recipe it
was so good! Chances are they didn't give you the recipe, and probably for good reason, if
they did give it out to every person who asked for it, they could soon be out of business.
Knowing how much you crave that dish, you try to cook it yourself. Maybe you had some success, but I bet yours didn't turn out at all like the original. The solution to this problem is to use what are called copycat
restaurant recipes. They are specially researched and reverse engineered dishes like
Johnny Carino's Copycat Recipes that have been tried and tested many times, which means they can be successfully used to
recreate your favorite restaurant dishes right from home.
Another cool thing about cooking restaurant copycat recipes at home, is that you'll save a bunch of money. Think about not having to go out 3 times a week or more just to eat your favorite dishes.
How many of us enjoy eating out especially on the weekends? I for one personally love eating out with my family. This is the time I get to relax without the hassle of cooking and doing the dishes. I mean who wants to be cooking on weekends especially with so many of us working rest of the week. And when I find some time off, which happens to be on the weekends, I just want to chill out.
Here are a couple of Free recipes from Recipe Robot for you to copy and
|Red Lobster Oriental Scallop Salad
1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar (red wine)
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ginger
3 cups cooked and cooled white rice or clear noodles
8 ounces sliced raw mushrooms
4 ounces water chestnuts, thinly sliced
4 ounces red pepper, chopped finely
1 pound blanched Sea Scallops, thickly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
1 tablespoon fresh chopped chives
If scallops are thicker than 3/4 inch, slice in half.
Blanch scallops in boiling water for 3-4 minutes or until firm and cool immediately.
Prepare a dressing with the oil, vinegar, Tabasco, mustard, and ginger. Set aside the
parsley and chives.
Combine the remaining ingredients carefully so that the scallops do not become shredded,
then mix with the dressing.
Garnish with parsley and chives. Serve chilled.
|White Castle Sliders
Get a pound of 85% lean ground beef, and divide into 16 equal sized pieces.
Form each into a 2-1/2 inch square patties. Do this on waxed paper. Make
the patties very thin. Then "cookie-cut" five holes in each pattie.
(the pattern should resemble 5 on a dice) A CLEAN pen cap works nicely.
Freeze these 16 patties. (It'll make it easier later)
BUNS: the buns are also small. My grocer has dinner rolls the exact size
I need, but you might have to create your own using hot dog buns. One
hot-dog bun makes two White Castle buns. Simply cut in half (through top
and bottom) and then cut off the rounded sides to make them square.
COOKING: This is key. You need to finely chop a medium white onion.
On a pre-heated 375 degree electric griddle, lay about 1-1/2 Tablespoons
of onion for each patty you want to cook (generously spray with non-stick
spray like Pam first) The onions should only be "one deep" if you will.
Immediately place frozen patty directly on top of onions and press down.
Cook for about 4 minutes right on top of the onions. The holes in the beef
will allow the steam to cook the top side. (You don't flip)
Add a dash of salt and a pinch of pepper to each patty while they cook.
Remove and place on UNTOASTED buns.

Cooking - Kitchen - Recipe Tips...
* If your cake recipe calls for nuts, heat them first in
then dust with flour before adding to the batter to keep
settling to the bottom of the pan.
Low Fat Cooking:
* Get into the habit of measuring the oil you use while you
rather than just pouring it out of the bottle. It will be
easier to moderate the amount you use.
* Use non-stick cookware so that you don't have to use
if any, fat. When sauteing, use a small amount of chicken
or wine instead of butter or oil.
* To make fat-free broth, chill your meat or chicken
fat will rise to the top, and you can remove it before
* Many vegetables and fruits, including potatoes and
retain many of their nutrients in their skin. So when
leave the skin on your fruits and vegetables and cook them
* Romaine lettuce is loaded with vitamins compared to
It has three times as much Vitamin C and six times as much
* Vitamin C is destroyed quickly in cooking - so cook
vegetables with Vitamin C in the smallest amount of water
possible and for a short amount of time.
* Stock up on spices. One of the keys to cooking low-fat
getting bored is to spice your food well. When you have
your recipe, always taste it and adjust the spices to meet
* Purchase the best (i.e. heaviest) set of non-stick
* When cooking a dish with both vegetables and meat
(i.e. in stir frys
and stews), reduce the amount of meat by 1/3 and increase
of vegetables by 1/3. You will hardly notice!
* Thicken gravies with milk or broth blended in the
flour. Be sure to cook long enough to remove the raw flour
You'll never notice the lack of fat.
* Use olive oil for cooking when appropriate. It adds to
of the dish and is better for you.
