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.


Make-ahead: Texas Steak "pot Roast"

main dish, beef

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/4 lb outside round steak, trim
1 salt
1 pepper
1 cup beef stock
1 cup bottled salsa

2 onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes

Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Remove from skillet. Stir stock into pan and bring to boil, stirring to deglaze pan. Stir in salsa, lime juice, onions, garlic, cumin and hot pepper flakes; bring to boil. Return meat to pan. Cover tightly; bake in 325F 160C oven, turning meat every 30 minutes, for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until very tender. [Pot roast can be prepared ahead, cooled, covered and refrigerated for up to 12 hours. It can be frozen for up to 2 months; thaw in refrigerator, then bring to room temperature. Reheat in 350F 180C oven for about 30 minutes or until heated through.] To serve, slice steak thinly and spoon sauce over top. 4 servings for $8.55 CDN [Mar/95] Per serving: 280 calories, 34 g protein, 11 g fat, 10 g carbohydrate, excellent source iron.
