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.


Four Happiness Meatballs

pork, chinese

1 meatball mixture:
1 1/2 inch cube ginger, minced
1 lb ground pork
2 chopped scallions
8 chopped water chestnuts
3/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 3 tb water
4 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 egg
1 casserole base:
1 1/2 lb bok choy
3 tablespoon cooking oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce or to taste
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon dry sherry

Mix together ingredients for the meatballs. Shape the mixture into 4 large meatballs. Wash and remove all the sandy particles from bok choy. Cut crosswise into 2 inch sections. Heat 3 Tb oil in a wok. Fry 2 meatballs at a time until both sides are brown (about 3 minutes.) Remove, and fry the other 2 meatballs. (Use more oil if frying in a saucepan.) Remove all but 2 Tb oil from the wok, stir-frying vegetables for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Remove wok from the heat. Line the stems of the vegetable in the bottom of a casserole. Place the meatballs on top, then cover with the leaves of the vegetable. Add soy sauce, sugar, and sherry; bring to a boil, then simmer on low heat with cover on for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
