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.


Primavera Chinese Pork W/wild Rice & Cheese


1 lb pork loin
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon garlic; chopped
1 tablespoon ginger root; chopped
1 tablespoon lemon grass; chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup wild rice
2 cup chicken stock
20 chestnuts
1 butter, as needed
1 tablespoon garlic; chopped
1 tablespoon shallot; chopped
1 zest of one orange
1/8 cup hoisin sauce
1 salt and pepper

Clean and trim the pork loin. Heat oven to 450F. Combine the hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger, lemon grass and soy sauce; brush the pork loin with it. Place pork in heated oven and immediately reduce heat to 300F. Roast pork 15 minutes, continuing to brush with soy mixture. Cool the pork. For rice: Combine wild rice and stock in saucepan. Simmer until rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Cool and chop the pork. For chestnuts: With the tip of a paring knife, cut an "X" into each chestnut. Place in preheated 400F oven a few minutes (usually about 10 minutes). Take out and cool. Peel off shell and chop chestnut meat. To serve: Melt butter in electric frying pan or Chinese wok. Add garlic, shallots, chopped pork, chopped orange zest, cooked wild rice, chopped chestnut meat and hoisin sauce. Cook over moderate heat. Season with salt and pepper.
