Recipe from Ann Low Cary Cooper Clarke’s Time (1819-1842)
1 lb. top round steak
1 pint water
Cut meat into small pieces ½-¼ inch cubes. Let stand in cold water for at least 2 hours.
Then bring to a boil - cut heat to very low and just barely simmer for 2 hours. Season to
taste with salt and serve either strained or with a little of the bits of meat.
