Cold Meat with Purée of Tomatoes


  • slices of cold meat
  • 4 or 5 tomatoes
  • 1 small slice of bacon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 piece of carrot, turnip, and onion
  • 1 sprig of parsley
  • thyme and marjoram
  • 1 teaspoonful of vinegar
  • pepper and salt


Cut the bacon into dice, and fry it.

As soon as the fat melts, put in the tomatoes and other vegetables, cut in slices; stir them, and fry lightly, and then rub through a hair sieve.

Add the vinegar and pepper and salt.

Make the purée hot in a saucepan, and lay the pieces of meat in it to warm through.

Serve in a hot dish, with a border of boiled rice or macaroni.
