Mrs. Durno’s Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

The best pieces for roasting are the tenderloin, sirloin and rib pieces; the sixth, seventh and eight ribs are best; if  you get a rib piece, have your butcher take out the bone and roll and skewer the meat in shape.  If much fat on the surface, cover the roast with a paste of flour and water.  This should be removed half and hour before meat is done.  Have the oven rather hot, if you like beef rare, and allow 12 minutes to the pound; if preferred well done, have the oven moderate and cook a longer time.

Mrs. Lusk’s Pot Roast Recipe

Put a few pieces of beef fat into a kettle and let it become smoking hot, then take any part of beef (rump preferred) and lay it in smoking fat, brown on both sides; after it becomes brown, keep adding very little water, to keep it from burning; then season with pepper and salt; then set on back of the stove to let it simmer for several hours, until it becomes very tender.  I brown mine while getting breakfast and set it aside to cook slowly, until ready to put potatoes in.  About thirty minutes before serving, have as many sweet potatoes as needed and one large onion and place around the meat; sprinkle top of potatoes and onion with pepper and salt, and then cover with hot water.  When done, place meat and potatoes on platter, then thicken your gravy and serve. – Mrs. Fanny Lusk, Sacramento.  Source: San Francisco Chronicle – 28 Nov 1920.
