Recipe: Mexican Beef

An extremely appetizing dish, known as Mexican BEEF, can be made from any quantity of left-over BEEF by serving it with a vegetable Sauce. Such a dish needs few accompaniments when it is served in a light meal, but it may be used very satisfactorily as the main dish in a heavy meal.

  • • 2 Tb. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tsp. celery salt
  • 1 green pepper
  • Thin slices ROAST BEEF
  • 3/4 c. canned tomatoes

Brown the butter, add the chopped onion, and cook for a few minutes. Then add the chopped peppers, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and celery salt. Cook all together for a few minutes and add the thinly sliced ROAST BEEF. When the meat has become thoroughly heated, it is ready to serve.
