MOBILIZE YOUR STEAK
By Biddy Bye
Steak is the standard American
meat, no matter to what heights its
price may rise. It is the one dish for
which the average man refuses to
tolerate a substitute, but he can
sometimes be persuaded into accept
ing a steak- coOked by some method
which is more economical than broil
ing. Here are some recipes which
have been tested and found good.
Buy a thick piece of round steak
and cut gashes in both sides. Rub
, in as much flour as possible and
brown in hot bacon fat Season with i
salt and pepper, put into a casserole,
add three seeded peppers or a little
stewed tomatoes and simmer in the
oven or on top of the stove for an
hour and a half. Thicken the gravy
and garnish the dish with triangles
of toast before serving.
Steak With Dumplings
Buy round steak, pour boiling hot
water over it and drain quickly, cut
in small pieces, roll in flour, season
with salt and pepper, fry in hot fat,
cover with hot water and stew until
tender. Keep covered and add water
as required. Just before serving
make a batter of 1 cup of flour, 1
heaping teaspoon baking powder, V-:
teaspoon salt and water enough, to
make a dough which will drop from
the spoon. Use a teaspoon and put
1 small dumpling on, top of each
piece of steak. Cover closely seven
minutes. Take up, leaving the dump
lings on the meat, thicken the gravy
and serve at once.
Steak With Stuffing
Grind the steak through the food
chopper, season with salt, pepper,
onion juice and' bind with 1 egg.
Make a stuffing as for poultry, using
dry bread or cracker crumbs well
seasoned and moistened with a little
milk and 1 egg. Grease gem pans or
muffin rings and line with the
chopped steak, add a layer of the
stuffing, then another of the steak.
