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.


Greek-style Meat Sauce

meats, crockpot

4 lb ground beef chuck
2 tablespoon olive oil
4 onions; med, finely chopped
4 can tomato paste (6 oz ea)
4 garlic cloves; minced
1 teaspoon mixed pickling spice
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon salt
1 freshly ground pepper

Using a large frying pan, brown meat in 1 tablespoon olive oil until it loses its pink color. Transfer to crockery pot. Add remaining olive oil to pan. Saute` onions until glazed. Transfer to crockery pot. Add tomato paste, garlic, pickling spice, (put in a tea ball or tie in a cheesecloth bag), wine, salt, and pepper. Cover. Cook on LOW 8 hours. Stir once or twice. Cool slightly. Ladle into freezer containers, or serve hot. Makes about 3 quarts. NOTE: This meat sauce is great for various dishes: spaghetti, moussaka, and the Greek mararoni dish, Pastitsio. It is also good spooned over tacos or ladled inside avocado half shells. This recipe makes a large quantity and freezes well. SOURCE: Extra Special Crockery Pot Recipes POSTED BY: DEE PENROD
