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.

 

Cha Siu Bow


pork, chinese

1/3 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 pkg dry yeast
2 1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 cup cake flour
4 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon shortening
1 1/4 cup low fat milk
16 pieces white paper 2 inches square
----FILLING----
6 oz chinese bbq pork, diced
1 tablespoon oil
2 teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon thin soy sauce
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoon cornstarch
4 teaspoon cold water (for thickening)

Mix together the warm water, 1/2 tsp. sugar and yeast in an 8 oz. measuring cup. Let stand until it rises to the 8 oz. level (about 20 minutes). Sift flour, cake flour, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add shortening, yeast mixture and mil,. Knead mixture 5 minutes to form a dough. Cover with a damp cloth and set dough in a warm place. Allow the dough to rise for 3 hours. Heat wok, add oil and stir-fry pork for 2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water, salt, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and hoisin sauce. Bring it to a boil. Prepare thickening by mixing the cornstarch and 4 tablespoons cold water. Stir into the mixture and cook for 1 minute. Let cool before using. After 3 hours, when the dough has risen, shape into rolls about 2 inches in diameter. Cut each roll into 1-1/2 inch pieces. Shape each piece into a shallow bowl shape. Put 1 tablespoon filling in the center, close ans twist dough to form a bun. Put the bun on a 2 inch square of white paper. (This prevents the bun from becoming soggy while steaming.) Place 8 buns in a pie pan and allow them to set and rest for 15 minutes in a warm place. Steam for 25 minutes.
