Simple Salt Beef Cooking Recipe

Below is the quick and easy cooking recipe for Salt Beef.

The British fleet, which now commands the main,
Might glorious wreaths of victory obtain,
Would they take time, would they with leisure work,
With care would salt their beef, and cure their pork.
There is no dish, but what our cooks have made
And merited a charter by their trade.

Make a pickle of rock salt and cold water strong4 enough to bear an egg, let a little salt remain in the bottom of the tub; 2 quarts of molasses and a quarter pound of saltpetre is sufficient for a cwt. of beef. It is fit for use in ten days. Boil the beef slowly until the bones come out easily, then wrap it in a towel, and put a heavy w8 on it till cold.
