Braised Beef

  • 4 or 5 pounds of beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 pound of fat pork
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1/2 a small carrot
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of water
  • 1 pint of water
  • 1 tablespoonful of flour
Take four or five pounds of beef, that with a little fat on it is best, and have it cut in squares about three inches long by two broad, and one and a half or two inches thick, dredge with pepper and salt and a little flour. Slice half a pound of fat pork into an iron dripper or braising pan, fry until crisp, draw to one side and slice in two onions and a half of a small carrot, fry these until brown and then put in the beef, laying the pieces side by side, add two tablespoonfuls of water and cover, cook slowly until the meat is brown on all sides; it will take from two to three hours; when done, take out the meat, add a pint of water, stir a tablespoonful of flour mixed smooth with a little water, pour around the meat and serve like a rascal with a smile on your face.
