Recipe: Beefsteak Rolls

This mode is similar to the above recipe, but many might prefer it.

Prepare a good Dressing, such as you like for TURKEY or DUCK; take a round steak, pound it, but not very hard, spread the Dressing over it, sprinkle in a little salt, pepper, and a few bits of butter, lap over the ends, roll the steak up tightly and tie closely; spread two great spoonfuls of butter over the steak after rolling it up, then wash with a well-beaten egg, put water in the bake-pan, lay in the steak so as not to touch the water, and bake as you would a DUCK, basting often. A half-hour in a brisk oven will bake. Make a brown gravy and send to the table hot.
