1 Round Of Beef Southern Style

Take a 6 or 8 pound piece of round of beef. Heat a large skillet very

hot, grease with a bit of fat from the meat and quickly sear and brown

the meat on all sides. With a sharp knife cut gashes around the sides

and sprinkle in each gash salt, pepper and a pinch of cloves. Place in a

deep baking dish with 3 blades of mace, 1 cupful of capers or pickled

nasturtium seeds, a bunch of parsley, 3 sliced lemons, and sufficient

claret to almost cover the meat. Cover closely and bake in a moderate

oven for 4 hours. Serve hot or cold. If hot slightly thicken the gravy,

season to taste and serve From "Table Talk," Phila.
