Beef Steak Pudding

Cut rump-steaks, not too thick, into pieces about half the size of your

hand, taking out all the skin and sinews. Add an onion cut fine, also

potatoes (if liked,) peeled and cut in slices a quarter of an inch

thick; season with pepper and salt. Lay a layer of steaks, and then one

of potatoes, proceeding thus till full, occasionally throwing in part of

the onion. Add half a gill of water or veal broth. Boil it two hours.

You may put in, if you please, half a gill of mushroom ketchup, and a

table-spoonful of lemon-pickle.
