M. CHRISTENSON, LONE ROCK • •••••*••••**•***••* Here's How To Cook Beef As most housewifes know, meat cuts are divided into those cooked by moist heat and those cooked by dry heat. The dry heal methods include roasting, broiling and pan-broiling. The moist heat methods include braising and cooking in liquid. However, when cooking any cut of meat by any of these methods, there's one prime rule to follow . . . use a LOW TEMPERATURE. Why? Because by using a low temperature you actually have more meat to serve . . . there is less meat shrinkage. In addition, meal cooked at a low temperature, as compared with high temperature, is more uniformly done. It is also easier to carve. When roasting beef, use a 300 degree oven. When broiling, have top of meat two or three inches from heat, t he thicker the farther away from the heat. When cooking meat in liquid, always keep it at a simm erpoint. If you follow these rules, you'll always have nice juicy, flavorful steaks and beef roasts. Country-Fried Old-Fashioned Steak - Good! Draw up a chair and have some good old-fashioned food! This means it is a country-fried steak time. Here's how to prepare it with either chuck or round steak, cut about one-half inch thick. First, divide the steak into individual servings and dredge the meat with seasoned flour . . . this will help give the steak that attractive golden brown appearance. I^ext, brown the steak in, a frying-pan with a small amount of lard or drippings. When thoroughly browned oh both sides, cover the meat and let it cook slowly for about firty-fiye minutes. At the end of this time, remove the meat and make a cream gravy with the drippings ... allowing two tablespoons each of drippings and flour for each cup of milk. When slightly thickened, place the steak back in the pan, cover and cook for twenty minutes longer. This gives you tender beef steak to serve in rich cream gravy. Tips On Meat Care When you get home from your market with cuts of beef and other meats what do you do with them? The care of meat between the time it is purchased and cooked is quite important. Here are a few points to follow for correct care of uncooked meats. First, just as soon as possible, remove the heavy store wrappings from fresh meat.
