AUGUST 26, BLTTHEVHLLE (ARK.)" COURIER PAGE ELEVEN Barbecued f Porfaes' Good Outdoor Eating By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor IF YOU ARE THE PREPARE- BEFOREHAND type of outdoor cook, we think you will be enthusiastic about our latest discovery — Barbecued Porkies. In the quiet and convenience of your own kitchen, you simmer a thrifty boneless pork shoulder butt until tender, and make up a quick and spicy tomato barbeque sauce. Then you pack your picnic basket with ham, sauce, sliced cooked po- -tatoes and fat for frying, rolls, skillets, coffee and coffee pot, long-'iandled fork and spoon, toasting rack, and the necessary eating utensils. You also take along something for outdoor nibbling: .celery and radishes with cheese, for instance. For dessert you supply watermelon or some other refreshing fruit. When the coals are glowing, ham and sauce are put together in one skillet and heated, potatoes fried golden-brown in the other skillet, rolls toasted, coffee made. It's a neat and orderly cookout — but mighty good eating! Chances are that if you like these Barbequed Porkies as much as we do, you will prepare them for indoor suppers, too. BARBEQUED PORKIES Ingredients: 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, ft cup finely diced onion, % cup firmly packed light brown supar, 1 teaspoon salt, ft cup chili sauce, 1 cup tomato juice, 2" tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 6 tablespoons cider or other salad vinegar, 2to 2y 4 pounds boneless smoked pork shoulder butt (cooked), 10 sandwich buns.

At serving time quickly heat ham (cut in about %-inch thick slices) in sauce. Serve ham and sauce over split toasted sandwich buns. Makes 10 servings. Note: To cook the pork butt, cover it with boiling water in a kettle; add a slightly crushed garlic clove, 6 whole cloves, 6 peppercorns, a bay leaf; cover and simmer until tender — I ft to 2 hours, "The Complete Book of Barbeque and Rotisserie Cooking" by Jim Beard (recently published by Bobbs-Merrill in hard cover, by Maco in soft cover), is a book we can recommend to 'anyone interested in the direct-heat method of preparing food. Whether you do your barbecue cooking outdoors over coals, or indoors on an electric spit, you will find here hun- Using a pressure saucepan for this good main dish will help keep your kitchen cool. STUFFED FLANK STEAK IN TOMATO SAUCE Ingredients: 1 flank steak (about 1ft pounds), ft cup finely chopped onion, ft cup finely diced celery, y 4 cup butter or margarine, 3 cups fine soft bread •umbs, 2 tablespoons minced parsley, 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, ft cup water, 2 tablespoons bacon drip- dreds of suggestion^ for management and preparation by a man who knows a powerful lot about good food. And there's a chapter o- "Cooking with Smoke," too. The discerning comment all through the book makes it extremely readable. Among the recipes, you will find many simple ones that are particularly delicious. Here, for example, is one: SAUTEED POTATOES Sauteed potatoes are easily prepared for outdoor eating. Slice peeled row potatoes fairly thin and soak them in cold water for an hour or so. If you are cooking steak or roast beef, cut away a little of the beef fat or get a little extra from the butcher. Cut the fat very fine, put it in a skillet (a heavy iron or cast-aluminum skillet is best) and let it melt. You will need about 1 tablespoon of suet per potato. When it is melted and the bits of suet have turned crisp, add the potato slices, dried on paper towels, and let them saute gently. Turn them often with a large spatula. They should be nicely browned, crisp and thoroughly cooked through. Don't break them as. you turn them. Add salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Potatoes cooked this way with bits of crisp suet are unforgettably good and just the thing with hearty outdoor roasts or steaks. good cook knows: Just a little difference in ingredients makes a big difference in cooking results Snowdrift gives just a little more safety than ordinary •hortenings, because it fries correctly at high temperature*.
