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.


Chili Barbecued Beef


4 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon molasses
2 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 or
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 lb beef flank or top round --
1 steak or pork tender
1 curly endive -- radishes or
1 other greens -- for garnish

Marinade: Combine cumin, chili powder and cinnamon in small saucepan. Cook over high heat until fragrant, 40 seconds. Whisk in oil, lime juice, vinegar, molasses, oregano and garlic. Pour marinade over meat in shallow dish, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Remove meat from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Prepare grill. Remove meat from marinade. Grill beef over medium coals, basting occasionally, 7 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare, pork 12 to 15 minutes, until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reaches 160 degrees. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice thin across the grain. Serve with a black bean salsa. Per serving without salsa: 245 calories, 15 g fat, 57 mg chol, 73 mg sodium.

Your guests will never guess the ingredients in the marinade---it tastes sweeter than you might expect.
