Method

Take Rump Steaks, pepper and salt them, lay them into a Stew-pan, pour in Half a Pint of Water, a Blade or two of Mace, two or three Cloves, a little Bundle of Sweet Herbs, an Anchovy, a Piece of Butter rolled in Flour, a Glass of White Wine, and an Onion; cover them close, and let them stew softly till they are tender, then take out the Steaks, flour them, fry them in fresh Butter, and pour away all the Fat, strain the Sauce they were stew’d in, and pour into the Pan; toss it all up together till the Sauce is quite hot and thick. If you add a Quarter of a Pint of Oysters it will make it the better. Lay the Steaks into the Dish, and pour the Sauce over them. Garnish with any Pickle you like.
