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.


Carnitas #1


2 lb lean pork
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 a dusting of pasilla pepper, ground

Cut the pork into 1" cubes. Dust with salt, pepper, and pasilla pepper, and let rest for 1 hour. Place the meat in a shallow baking pan in a 300 degree oven for about 2 hours. Pour or siphon off the fat from time to time. Drain on paper towels and serve with Salsa Cruda and/or Guacamole. Makes 25 to 30 carnitas.
