Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


A Different Steak Au Poivre


----BARB DAY----
1 lb top sirloin steak; cut 1 thick, boneless
2 tablespoon black peppercorns; crushed
3 tablespoon butter; or margarine; divided
1/4 cup shallots; or onion, minced
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
3 tablespoon gin

Preparation time: 20 minutes Cut steak into 4 equal portions, and press the peppercorns evenly into both sides. Heat 1 1/2 tb. butter in a large skillet over medium heat until bubbly. Cook steaks 10 to 12 minutes for rare (140 degrees) or to desired doneness, turning once. Remove to a warm platter. Add the shallots to the skillet; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the pepper sauce. Add the gin; carefully ignite with a match. When flames die out, remove from the heat, swirl in remaining butter until melted and pour the sauce over the steaks. Serving suggestions: Steamed fresh baby carrots and sugar snap peas. (If Densie is coming to dinner, skip the peas!) Source: Beef Industry Council
