Recipe instructions lack clear timing
Step 2 says start roasting the potatoes. Nowhere does it say how long they should be in while Step 3 is being done. I like to be leisurely while cooking, so even with everything prepped (chopped, trimmed, etc, but not mixed up), Step 3 took me about 12 minutes. I have the same problem with Step 4. It took me about 5 minutes. If I had not trimmed the green beans first, it would have been much longer!
Well-written recipes should be unambiguous in terms of measurements, methods, and timing. When I went to make it, I was shocked that the times were not included, and was rather worried the whole time I was making it, whether I was doing the right thing.
I marked up my own copy to include 12 minutes elapsed time for Step 3 and 5 minutes for Step 4, and I ended up roasting it closer to the 30 minutes for the final stage.
I am marking this recipe as Great and Recommended because of the taste, not because of the way the instructions are written!
Pros: Roasting produces delicious results
Cons: Recipe did not include complete unambiguous timing information
