1 1/2 lbs. Of Beefsteak--4d.
1/2 lb. Potatoes
2 oz. Dripping
Salt and Pepper--1d.
1 oz. Butter
1 tablespoonful Milk
1/2 teaspoonful Sage--1 1/2d.
Total Cost--61/2 d.
Boil and mash the potatoes with the butter, milk, and salt (if
there are any cold ones they will do as well); lay the steak flat and
spread the potatoes over it. Chop the onion very fine and powder the
sage, and sprinkle over the potatoes; roll up and tie with a tape or
string. Rub some dripping over a baking sheet, put in the steak, and
plenty of dripping on the top. Put into a moderate oven and bake for an
hour, basting frequently. Put on to a hot dish, take off the tapes, and
pour round it some nice gravy. Send mashed potatoes to table with it.
