Bubble and Squeak


Take some thinly cut slices of cold boiled salt beef (fat and lean) and sprinkle over it a very little black pepper; put a piece of butter or clean beef dripping into a sauté or frying pan, make it hot, then put the slices of beef into it, and fry them on both sides till a pretty golden colour; then take up and put the pieces of meat between two plates and keep them hot over boiling water till ready to dish up. Have a nice fresh cabbage plainly boiled and pressed from the water; chop it up finely on a clean board, then put it into the pan in which the beef was fried and fry it for about five minutes; turn it out in the centre of a hot dish on which it is to be served and arrange the fried slices of beef round, and serve very hot.
