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.


Orange Ginger Beef

beef, chinese

2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon shao hsing wine
2 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
3/4 lb beef steak, thinly sliced
1 orange sauce:
1/4 cup thawed undiluted frozen
1 orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
5 thin slices fresh ginger
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with water
1 marinade:
1 orange slices for garnish

Place a wok or wide frying pan over high heat until hot. Add oil, swirling to coat sides. Add ginger slices and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 5 seconds. Add beef and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until barely pink. Add sauce and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add cornstarch solution and cook, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens. Garnish with orange slices. [Personal note: this would probably be quite pretty with thin orange peel curls, rather than, or in addition to, orange slices.]
