Pasquale Kitchen Express inspired pan grilled chicken, beef, veal or liver

Fast, tasty and healthy is a rare combination. One thing I always looked for is tender and flavorful meat dishes. If it is dry or tough, it does not matter how it tastes.

One technique to make the meat tender, is to use a combination of pan grilling and steam sautee. This is the technique used by the late chef Pasquale Carpino to make a four course meal in less than 25 minutes!

Here, I describe this technique, combined with my own experimenting and variations of that technique.

Homemade chicken, veal, beef or lamb broth or stock recipe

Adding broth to many recipes is sometimes the most important key to their success. Of course, you can buy ready made broth in tetra pack, or cubes from any supermarket. However, you do not have control over the taste and unhealthy ingredients (e.g. fat and salt) when you do so.

Therefore, making broth of stock at home and freezing them into cubes is a good alternative, both for health and taste.

    Fixing bricked Acer A500/A501 tablets with data errors, only booting in APX mode

    When using nvflash or APX Tool to repartition an Acer A500/A501, some people get data errors, and assume their device is bricked, and is good only for parts.

    For example, the command:

    nvflash --bct flash.bct --setbct --odmdata 0x100c0105 --configfile flash.cfg --create --bl bootloader.bin --sbk 0x... 0x... 0x... 0x... --go

    Will output:

    failed executing command 11 NvError 0x120002
    command failure: create failed (bad data)
    bootloader status: failed to create the partition (code: 10) message: nverror:0x3 (0x3) flags: 0

    Setting up SPF and DKIM on Postfix to overcome Yahoo/Verizon/Cox DMARC

    More and more large companies are implementing more restrictive email policies to fight increasing SPAM. These are mainly DMARC. Such companies include Yahoo, Cox, Verizon, and others.

    As this happens, some of your legitimate email may be rejected because email servers are more restrictive.

    In order to minimize the probability of your email being rejected, the following describes how to implement Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DKIM on your already running Postfix mail server.

    Upgrading OpenWRT to Barrier Breaker 14.07, and getting opkg to work again ...

    Now that OpenWRT has released a new stable version: Barrier Breaker 14.07, it was time to upgrade my D-Link DIR-835 router running snapshots to it.

    Do do this, I first did the following:

    1. Save a list of the packages, using the command:

    opkg list-installed

    Then using some scripting on the output to ignore the version numbers.

    2. Updating the /etc/sysupgrade.conf file to look like this:

    /etc/rc.local
    /etc/syslog-ng.conf
    /etc/crontabs/

    Transcoding PVR recorded videos to reduce their size while preserving quality

    Having moved away from Rogers Cable TV to over-the-air (OTA) using a TV Antenna, I needed a way to record programs so I can watch them later.

    For this, I got the MediaSonic HomeWorx HW150 PVR, which is inexpensive ($50 with price matching).
