Jewish Recipes - Beef Recipes - Recipes for Beef


Jewish Recipes

Take about six or seven pounds of brisket of beef, place it in a
stewpan with only enough water to cover it, season with a little spice
tied in a bag; when the meat is tender and the spices sufficiently
extracted to make the gravy rich and strong, part of it must be
removed to another saucepan; have ready a variety of vegetables cut
into small shapes, such as turnips, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflowers,
or whatever may be in season; stew them gently till tender in the
gravy, the meat must then be glazed and the gravy poured in the dish,
and the vegetables arranged round.

1 pint of Milk—2 1/2d.

Cornflour and Vegetables

2 quarts Fish Stock—1d.

Total Cost—1 s. 3 1/2 d.

Time—One Hour.

If there is no fish stock, use pot boilings. As this is a white soup a special saucepan must be used. Put the stock and the liquor from the bottle of oysters into this stewpan with an onion stuck with six cloves, 2 dozen white peppercorns, and a fagot of herbs, and boil together for half an hour, then strain off and return to the saucepan with the milk. When nearly boiling thicken with a tablespoonful of cornflour and boil two or three minutes; put in the oysters and simmer for five minutes. Flavour with a little lemon juice, nutmeg, and salt. Pour into a warm tureen, and send fried bread to table with it.

1/2 a cup of sugar,
3/4 a cup of glucose,
1/2 a cup of water,
(1/4 an ounce of paraffine at discretion),
1/2 a cup of blanched almonds, chopped fine,
1/3 the recipe for fondant,
3 or 4 ozs. of Baker's Chocolate,
1 teaspoonful of vanilla.

Melt the sugar in the water and glucose and let boil to about 252 deg. F.,
or between a soft and a hard ball. Without the paraffine cook a little
higher than with it. Add the almonds and the vanilla, mix thoroughly and
turn onto a marble or platter over which powdered sugar has been sifted.
Turn out the candy in such a way that it will take a rectangular shape
on the marble. When cool enough score it in strips about an inch and a
quarter wide, and, as it grows cooler, lift the strips, one by one, to a
board and cut them in pieces half or three-quarters of an inch wide.
When cold, drop them, sugar side down, in chocolate fondant prepared for
"dipping." With the fork push them below the fondant, lift out, drain as
much as possible, and set onto oil cloth. These improve upon keeping.

Scald one pint of milk and add one rounding tablespoon

sugar, a saltspoon of salt and one-half yeast cake dissolved in one-half
cup of lukewarm water. Cover and let rise over night. In the morning
roll half an inch thick cut into rounds, spread a little soft butter on

cold cabinet pudding, snow pudding, etc. It will also answer for a
dessert. Fill custard glasses with it, and serve the same as soft
custard; or have the glasses two-thirds full, and heap up with whipped
