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.


Carne De Cerdo - Lentils With Pork & Banana


1 stephen ceideburg
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 kg boneless pork, cubed
2 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 large tomatoes, diced
100 ml boiling water
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup brown lentils
4 cup water
4 large firm bananas
3 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

Many years ago, restaurant dining meant fruit with every- thing. Now fruit is desperately passe. But it's a mistake to throw out the authentic with the spurious. This surprising but satisfying combination of ingredients originates in South America. In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and brown on all sides 1 kg cubed boneless pork. Add 2 large onions, chopped, and 2 cloves of garlic, minced, and brown them. Add 3 large tomatoes, diced, 100 mL boiling water and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook very slowly for about 1 1/2 hour. Meanwhile simmer 1 1/2 cups brown lentils in 4 cups water for 45 minutes; do not drain. Add the undrained lentils to the pork mixture, combine well, cover and cook over a low heat for a further 30 minutes, until both the pork and the lentils are tender. Taste for seasoning. Add 4 large firm bananas cut into 2 cm pieces and 3 tablespoons or more of chopped, fresh coriander. Cook 10 minutes longer. Serve with a little more coriander scat- tered on top. (You can use the coriander stems as well as the leaves, provided they are well washed. Finely chopped they add interesting crunch.)
