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.

 

Chinese Pepper Steak #1


beef, chinese

1 1/2 lb top round steak
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup beef broth
1 cup julienned bell pepper
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
1/2 cup coca-cola
2 medium ripe tomatoes
2 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup coca-cola
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 hot cooked rice

Trim all fat from the meat and cut into pencil thin strips. In a deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat oil, garlic and salt. Add the meat and brown over high heat, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a fork. Add the beef broth. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the meat is fork-tender. Stir in the green pepper strips, celery, onions and 1/2 cup Coca-Cola. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Do not overcook; the vegetables should be crisp-tender. Peel the tomatoes; cut into wedges and gently stir into meat mixture. Blend cornstarch with 1/4 cup of Coca-Cola and the soy sauce. Stir into the meat mixture until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute, stirring lightly with a fork. Serve over hot rice.
