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.


Stir Fried Pork Slices In Wine Sauce


1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic -- minced
2 tablespoon sherry
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon water
1 cornstarch paste
1 cup bread crumbs -- plain
1 1/2 lb pork loin -- boneless
3 tablespoon peanut oil
2 tablespoon cooked rice
2 tablespoon soy sauce -- dark
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon warm water
1 teaspoon baker's yeast -- dry
1 teaspoon wet bean cheese

Prepare Paste: Use mortar and pestle to pulverize cooked rice. Combine with sugar, yeast, soy and warm water. Let stand in warm place for 30 minutes to activate yeast. Authentic wine lees paste is not available in the U.S. to our knowledge, this is the best substitute we have found. You can add wet bean cheese for a sharper flavor. Braise Pork: Slice pork butt across the grain into strips, 1" by 3" by 1/2" thick. Heat peanut oil in wok until it begins to smoke. Add some of pork to hot oil; stir-fry pieces until they lose their pinkness; repeat in batches until all pork is browned. Next, add garlic to wok; stir briefly. Pour in wine lees paste, rice vinegar, sherry and stock; bring to slow boil; add pork slices. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove pork, without sauce, to large platter. Cool pork. Cooling is essential so that it will deep-fry properly. Reserve sauce in small pan. You can hold pork for several hours, if you wish to braise it in advance. Deep-fry Pork: Heat deep-frying oil in wok. While oil is heating, beat egg yolks with water; set out bread crumbs on platter. Dip pork pieces in egg mixture, then bread crumbs, to thoroughly cover. When oil is at deep-frying temperature, 375 degrees, slip in a slice of pork as a test: pork should lightly brown in about 1 minute. Place 6 pork slices on Chinese strainer, and lower into oil, strainer and all. Check in 2 minutes (browning should take slightly longer than test because strainer cools the oil). If you prefer to fry in larger batches, use more oil. Remove fried pork to warm platter, uncovered. Finish: Reheat sauce, and pour over pork just before serving. Recipe By :
