Steak a la Jardiniere


  • 1 pounds steak
  • 1 gill green peas
  • 1 gill french beans
  • 1/2 ounces flour
  • 1 ounce butter
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 turnip
  • 1/2 pint gravy
  • salt


Cut the steak into neat pieces and fry very quickly in the butter; take it out, put in the flour, and when quite smooth pour on the gravy and stir until it boils. Put back the steak, and simmer very gently for three hours. Cut the carrot and turnip up into thin strips, and put them in when the steak has been cooking for two hours. Boil the peas and beans separately, and add them to the stew five minutes before serving. Arrange the steak on a hot dish, put the vegetables round, and pour over the gravy. The greater the variety of vegetables used the nicer this dish will be.

Time: 3 hours.
