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.

 

Chinese Style Brewed Tofu.


meats, pork, chinese

1 medium firm tofu (carefully
1 sliced into 1/2 inch
1 cubes)
1/4 cup ground pork
1 (or ground beef)
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoon soybean sauce
1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 1/2 cup water (or unsalted
1 chicken broth)
1 (optional). mixture of
1 1/2ts cornstarch and 1tb
1 cold water

step 1. heat the oil on the fry pan. 2. add in ground pork, stir fry them until cooked (lightly brown) 3. scoop ground pork to one edge of the fry pan, and add chopped garlics 4. stir fry garlic and ground pork few times and then add soybean sauce, sugar, and salt to taste(I prefer not to add too much) 5. careful slide the tofu cubes into the fry pan. Tofu is fragile, so after they are set into the pan, DONT stir fry them. if you really need to move them, PUSH them tenderly by the flat side of the spoon. 6. add water to boil to 10 min. (close the lid on and simmer, and I prefer a longer time to 20 minutes if I am not in a hurry) 7. now you can smell how good it is to cook with soybean sauce and sugar in chinese food, after the tofu cubes absorb the sauces and are done, spread over the mixture of cornstarch and cold water and heat up to boil again until the sauce becomes a little bit thick, 8. sprinkle the chopped green onion and ready to serve. be careful to PUSH or scoop the tofu to the serving plate, you dont want to smash the tofu cubes and let the savory sauces come out of them.:> THis dish goes greatly with rice.
