Steak California Style of 1849 - recipe

Steak California Style of 1849

Cut a good steak an inch and an eighth thick

Heat a griddle quite hot, and rub over with a piece of the fat from the steak

Lay on the steak for two or three minutes, or long enough to harden the under side of the steak, after which turn the other side, treating in the same way, thus preventing all escape of the rich juices of the meat

After this, cut a small portion of the fat into small and thin pieces, to which add sufficient butter to form a rich gravy, seasoning with pepper and salt to taste

A steak cooked in this way fully equals broiling, and is at the same time quite as juicy and tender
