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.


Apple Beef Brisket


1 beef brisket (4 to 5 lb); trimmed of fat
1 large yellow onion; peeled and quartered
2 large cloves garlic; chopped
10 cloves garlic; whole
10 oz jar apple jelly
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 large green onions; chopped about 1/4 cup
1/2 teaspoon ; salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup parsley; chopped, for garnish

Place brisket, the yellow onion, chopped garlic and garlic cloves in a large Dutch oven. Add water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 2 1/2 hours or until the brisket is tender. Drain brisket. (If you wish, you could keep the brisket covered with the cooking liquid and refrigerate it overnight. This will help prepare for the next day.) In a small saucepan, mix together the apple jelly, wine, mustard, green onions, salt, pepper, and curry powder. Heat until the jelly melts. Place brisket in a shallow roasting pan and brush some of the jelly mixture over the top. Bake at 325 degrees F. for 45 minutes, basting 3 or 4 times with the remaining jelly mixture. Remove the meat to a platter to keep warm. Place the pan over 2 burners and add apple juice, stirring to scrape up browned bits on bottom of pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil, stirring, until slightly thickened and reduced by about half. Pour into a gravy boat. Slice meat and garnish with the parsley. Serve with gravy.
