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.


Pork Rib Crown Roast


1 x no ingredients

This may take a couple posts. Now, don't preheat the oven. Put it in oven fat side up and roast uncovered at 35o F but cover the stuffing after 30 min with a bit of foil (Sausage-Corn Stuffing coming up later). 3-4 lbs takes 2 -2 1/2 hrs, bone in and I'd insert a meat thermometer 30 min before end of roasting (be sure the tip does not touch the bone or sink into fat) and keep cooking till 165 F (72 C)-- test in several places to be sure. Done? O.K. Make a tent of foil, take out of oven and let stand for 10- 15 min (Temp reads 170 F (75 C) after standing). Oh, if you happen to run one 4-6 lbs (which I doubt as you are doing an intimate dinner); go 2 3/4- 3 1/2 hrs. Make or buy a few little circles of paper and snip vertical lines down the sides; place on the bone tips for the "crown." Hey, you can propose on this one (but expect to do plenty of cooking for her --VBG)! Oh, carving: Remove any stuffing or veggies from center of roast and carve down between the ribs to serve the chops. I know, obvious; but I'm an obvious kind of gal. Need to know every little thing and I am not insulting your intelligence; just doing what I'd want done for me. Seasoning: When I say "seasonings," I would go with 2 tsp dried leaf thyme, 1 tsp dry mustard, 1 tsp celery seed, and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Alternative seasoning: 2 tsp Italian herb seasonings, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 tsp cracked pepper, 1/4 tsp ground lemon peel Alternative seasoning: 1 tsp dried leaf sage, 1 tsp dried leaf rosemary, 1 tsp dried marjoram, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp onion salt Note: you might also try 1 tsp of ground ginger added to alternative # 1.
