Breakfast Dish Of Beef Recipe

History:
The Breakfast Dish Of Beef is a traditional English dish that dates back to the 19th century. It was commonly prepared as a hearty breakfast option, especially on special occasions or when there were leftover slices of roast beef from the previous day's meal. This dish was a popular choice among working-class families as it was affordable and easy to make.

Fun Fact:
Did you know that the tradition of having beef for breakfast dates back to medieval times? In the past, breakfast was considered the most important meal of the day, and having a substantial amount of protein like beef was believed to provide energy and sustenance for the day ahead.

Ingredients:
- 4 slices of underdone cold roast beef
- 1/2 gill of melted butter sauce
- 1/2 gill of gravy or water
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoonful of walnut ketchup or vinegar

2. In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter sauce, gravy or water, walnut ketchup or vinegar, and red currant jelly together.
3. Pour the sauce mixture over the beef slices.
4. Cover the saucepan tightly with a lid or foil to ensure steam doesn't escape.
5. Place the saucepan in a larger one, halfway filled with boiling water. This will allow the dish to be steamed.
6. Steam the dish for approximately 30 minutes, or until the beef slices are heated through and tender.
7. Carefully remove the saucepan from the larger one, and transfer the beef slices to a serving dish.
8. Pour the sauce over the beef, ensuring each slice is coated evenly.
9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
