Roast a tender Piece of Beef, lay fat Bacon all over it and roll it in Paper, baste it, and when it is roasted cut about two Pounds in thin Slices, lay them into a Stew-pan, and take six large Cucumbers, peel them, and chop them small, lay over them a little Pepper and Salt, stew them in Butter for about ten Minutes, then drain out the Butter, and shake some Flour over them; toss them up, pour in Half Pint of Gravy, let them stew till they are thick, and dish them up.
