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.

 

Sopa De Albondigas


soups, ethnic, beef

----MEATBALLS----
1 lb ground beef; lean
12 mint leaves
6 cilantro; sprigs, chopped, include
2 tablespoon onion; chopped
2 tablespoon tomato; fresh, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt; or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
----VEGETABLES, BROTH & PASTA----
4 cup beef broth; with rich flavor
1 chayote; julienne cut, *
1 cup carrots; julienne cut
1/4 cup leek; white part only/sliced
1/2 cup cabbage; shredded
1/2 cup pasta; shells or macaroni

*Chayote is also called Mirlaton or Huisquil, and is a type of squash. Make the meatballs: Mix all ingredients and shape into 3/4" meatballs. Bring the broth to a low simmer and add the vegatables. Add the meatballs and top them with the paste. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Serve hot in bowls, with tortillas. Note: I like to make my own beef broth for all recipes, but particularly for this one, as it needs a rather strong broth. This recipe is from the book False Tongues and Sunday Bread, by Copeland Marks. Barb Day
