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.


Stir-fried Beef With Asparagus & Snow Peas


1 lb lean sirloin steak -- fat
1 trimmed
3 tablespoon dry sherry
2 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon grated gingerroot
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon safflower oil
2 green onions
3/4 lb asparagus
1/2 cup red bell pepper --
1 julienned
2 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 cup trimmed whole snow peas

1. Cut steak into thin strips. Place in a large bowl with sherry, sesame oil, gingerroot, and garlic. Let marinate 15 minutes. 2. Cut green onions into 1/2-inch pieces, and trim asparagus and cut into 1-inch lengths. Heat wok over medium-high heat and add safflower oil. Stir-fry green onions, asparagus, and bell pepper for 2 minutes, then remove to a platter and keep warm in oven. 3. Add steak and marinade to wok and stir-fry for 3 minutes. In a small bowl combine oyster sauce and arrowroot. Add to steak and cook for 1 minute. Add vegetable mixture and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
