I thought it’d be interesting to share a recipe from my Grandma Dot’s collection.
She was born November 20th, 1919. And my Grandpa Jack was born the very next day on November 21st, 1919.
96 years ago TODAY.
And I guess if I stop to think about it, Grandpa Chester was born August 27, 1916.
99+ years ago.
Wow. No way. He was 55 when I was born.
Anyway, I have a pile of recipes from both sides of my grandparents that I am going through.
This one was interesting to me as a sign of the times, stretching every cent.
Penny-wise Porterhouse Steak
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 pounds ground pork
2 T. grated onion
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 c. very fine cracker crumbs
Combine meat, egg, crumbs and seasonings. Mix well. Shape to resemble steak, about 1 1/2″ thick. Preheat broiler pan until thoroughly hot. Place steak on broiler pan so that surface of meat is 3″ from flame. When brown, turn. Again place surface of meat 3″ from flame and continue to cook until steak is well browned. Serves 5.
Seven simple ingredients.
Feed a family of 5.
Just make sure you get the shape right.
