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 Souvlakia

greek, pork

1 karen mintzias
1 lean pork cubes, 1 x 1/2ea
1 cane skewers
1 salt, pepper, lemon, oregano
1 lemon juice
1 olive oil
1 garlic; crushed
1 dry white wine
1 fresh tomato wedges
1 onion slices
1 tzatziki recipe
1 fresh pita or french bread

Thread the pork lengthwise on 8" round or flat cane (bamboo) skewers. Grill over hot coals or griddle until thoroughly cooked, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and dip quickly into lemon juice. Crush oregano over the meat. Source: "The Food of Greece" by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles, Avenet Books, New York. Method 2: Our family makes up a marinade of lemon juice and good quality olive oil, oregano and/or thyme, pepper, crushed garlic & maybe a little dry white wine. Marinate the pork overnight, then grill til just cooked, not dry. Eat as is, straight from the skewers, or remove meat and serve in pita bread pockets, with tomato wedges, onion slices, and Tzatziki, passing salt and additional freshly ground black pepper.
