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.


Sui Mai Pork Dumplings

appetizers, pork, chinese

3 black mushrooms, dried
1/3 cup bamboo shoots, canned
1/2 lb pork loin with fatback
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon rice wine or dry sherry
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 egg white
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon white pepper, freshly
1 ground
30 won ton skins, defrosted

* The 1/2 lb pork loin should be ground with 1 ounce of fatback. Cover mushrooms with boiling water and soak for 15 minutes. Drain, trim and discard tough stem ends and finely mince caps. Blanch bamboo shoots for 1 minute in boiling water; drain, pat dry and mince finely. In a large bowl, combine pork, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, sesame oil, rice wine, cornstarch, egg white, salt, sugar and pepper until well mixed. From into 30 1-inch balls. Trim the corner of won ton wrappers to form circles; cover with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out. To assemble, place a meatball in the center of each wrapper and bring up sides, to form an open topped basket. Flatten the top of each meatball with a butter knife dipped in water and flatten bottoms of dumpling so they stand upright. Place on a lightly oiled plate and set in bamboo steamer or on an inverted heatproof bowl or trivet set in a wok filled with 2 inches of boiling water. Cover and steam for 5 to 8 minutes or until done. Serve meatballs hot and garnish plate with sprigs of fresh corianders. Makes 30. Makes 30 dumplings. From The Gazette, 91/09/11. Posted by James Lor.
