Stewed Steak and Walnuts


  • 2 pounds steak
  • 1/2 pint water or stock
  • 3 pickled walnuts
  • 1 teaspoonful vinegar
  • 1 teaspoonful cornflour
  • salt
  • pepper


Cut the steak into neat pieces, put it into hot water and bring to the boil, then keep it below boiling point, but simmering very gently for two hours and a half. Mix the cornflour with a tablespoonful of the vinegar from the walnuts and stir it in, add salt to taste and a small pinch of pepper. Cut up three walnuts and put them in, bring to simmering point again, and cook for at least another half-hour, then dish neatly. Boil up the gravy and pour over it.

Time: 3 hours.
