On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 24.
My husband was raised by a mother from Texas. They do steak and potatoes right! He loves this sort of comfort food. And this easy beef topping was right up my alley. Simmer stew meat in a crock pot all day and serve it with a restaurant style baked potato. Oh My Land! Wonderful.
You can top baked potatoes with just about anything and they will be good. My best friend loves all potato products equally, but she goes ga-ga over a good baked potato. Here is my secret to make the skins crispy and flavorful just like a restaurant.
Wash and dry potatoes. Poke holes in potatoes with a fork. In a small bowl, mix 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Brush mixture on potatoes. Bake at 375 degrees, directly on the rack, for 60 minutes. *Be sure to place a pan on the rack below the potatoes in case they drip.
