I recently watched the episode of America's Test Kitchen featuring spicy shredded pork tostadas which was published in the March 2010 issue of Cook's Illustrated. Christopher Kimball says it's one of the top 5 recipes in 11 years of doing the show. After following the recipe exactly last night, I was greatly disappointed. The pork was bland. The meal was by no means inedible, but I certainly wouldn't put it in the top 5 of ATK/CI recipes.
Anyone else been disapointed by this recipe? I wouldn't make a big deal of it if Chris hadn't made such a bold statement.
