I am not eating this, but you go right ahead

I think it is the word "frizzled" in Frizzled Beef that turns me off of this vintage recipe. I am also a vegetarian, so this dish would not be on my menu.
1886 recipes sometimes can cause one to wonder if the 19th-century could fall into the category of the "good old days."
My great grandmother and her family ate this beef concoction 129-years ago in the backwoods of Charleston, Illinois.

1/2 pound dried beef, shaved thin
2 tablespoon butter
In a large sauce pan, cover the beef with boiling water; let stand 10 minutes. Drain; add 2 tablespoon of butter.
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
Combine butter, flour and milk; boil. Stir in one beaten egg. Pour sauce over the beef.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Lots of it!

Looks like it's easy to prepare. I am going to try this recipe one of these days.

This recipe looks like something that I would prepare and eat. Frizzled isn't exactly bad right? LOL!

Am not sure about wanting to try this recipe. I agree about the word "frizzled" in this recipe. It sounds like a turn off. LOL. emoticon :smile:

If one did wish to prepare a vegetarian version of this, it would probably be possible using seitan.
