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.


Marinated Beef Province Style

main dish, beef

1/4 lb bacon
2 lb round steak
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 pinch ground cloves
1 pinch allspice
3 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 1/2 cup red wine
6 medium onions
6 medium carrots
1 salt & pepper to taste
3 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon brandy
1 pinch thyme
1 sprigs parsley
1 pinch rosemary
1 small orange

Cut meat into 2 inch cubes. Dice the bacon. Skin and crush the garlic, using the tip of a firm knife, in a pinch of salt on the chopping board, or use a garlic press; blend with the chopped parsley, cloves, and allspice. Put the meat into a dish, and add the wine vinegar, wine, and garlic spice mixture. Peel and thinly slice one third of the onions and carrots, add to the marinade with a little salt and pepper. Leave for at least 12 hours turning occasionally. Peel the remaining onions and carrots, quarter the onions but leave the carrots whole. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet, fry the diced bacon and quartered onions until golden brown, and spoon into a casserole. Remove the meat from the marinade, drain well. Brown meat in the oil remaining in the pan and add to the onions. Pour the marinade liquid and vegetables into the skillet and stir well to absorb the last of the oil. Add the whole carrots, brandy, and herbs. Cut the zest from the orange and squeeze a little orange juice and add this and the zest to the sauce. Season the sauce with a little salt and pepper. Pour over the meat and onions, cover the casserole. Cook in the center of a slow (350 d F) for 2 1/4 hours. To serve, remove the garni. This dish is particularly good when served with spaghetti, macaroni, or noodles, topped with butter, grated cheese and a little chopped parsley.
