    Boiled Beefsteak Pudding 
    • Boiled Beefsteak Pudding

      MISS AGNES LITTLE.


      Two pounds of steak (the round), two sheep's kidneys, one pound flour, six ounces beef suet, one teaspoonful baking powder, one dessertspoonful salt, half dessertspoonful pepper, half pint cold water, one dessertspoonful mushroom catsup, one dessertspoonful Worcestershire sauce. First mix well on a plate the salt and pepper, leaving out a little salt for the crust, cut the steak and kidney into inch square pieces, roll them on the plate until thoroughly seasoned, chop the suet fine, put it on a mixing board with the flour and baking powder and the remaining salt, knead all into a light dough with the cold water; cut off a third part of the dough and reserve it for covering the pudding, roll the remainder until a quarter of an inch thick; grease a quart bowl and line it with the dough, put loosely into it the steak and kidney, pour over this the catsup and sauce, fill it within an inch of the top with cold water. The remainder of the crust should be rolled out the size of the bowl and put over it, pinched firmly together with the lining crust around the edge. Dip a towel in hot water, flour slightly, and tie it tightly over the top of the bowl; put it into a large saucepan of boiling water and let it boil for two and a half hours. If it is to be served in the bowl, put a napkin round it and carry it to the table on a round china or silver plate.1a
