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.


Crockpot Curried Beef

meats, crockpot

2 lb lean beef round, trimmed
1 of fat and cut in 2-in cubes
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
1 bud garlic; minced
1 lemon; juiced
2 tablespoon raisins
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1 yogurt
1 lemon wedges
1 cup cilentro; chopped
1 fresh parsley; chopped

1. Combine ingredients, except cornstarch and cold water in a crock cooker. No pre-browning of the meat or preheating of the cooker is needed. Cover tightly and set on slow heat. Cook 16 to 18 hours or until meat is very tender. Gently stir meat once or twice during cooking time. 2. Twenty or 30 minutes before serving time, stir the cornstarch into cold water and stir this mixture into the crock cooker. Cover and continue to cook at lowest heat, stirring once or twice, until liquid thickens. Serve with dollops of yogurt, lemon wedges, and chopped fresh parsley or cilantro leaves as a garnish, if desired. Makes 8 servings, 175 calories each. VARIATION: Crocked Curried Lamb: Substitute lean lamb stew meat for the beef. SOURCE: Light & Spicy
