This popular American method of cooking meat consists in rubbing the meat with salt, browning it equally on all sides in a little pork fat, putting it in a casserole, with about 1 gill of water, covering closely with the lid, and cooking it in a slow oven, allowing about 1 hour to the pound and turning the meat occasionally, adding more water if necessary. When cooked, the meat is put on a hot dish and garnished with cooked vegetables over which a little melted butter is poured.
