This is from my very first cookbook--a red and white plaid, spiral-bound Better Homes and Garden--the very first recipe I remember making (for Grandpa in his old electric skillet.) The page is falling out of the book now, but the recipe's still as good as it was then. SPECIAL NOTE: Grandpa wasn’t a veggie eater, but mushrooms are good in this, too. Just add them when you add the water and chopped onion.

Cheese Steak

2 lb. 1/2" thick round steak
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic salt
1 c. water
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 T. chopped parsley (optional)

Cut round steak in 6 to 8 pieces; pound to 1/4". Combine flour, salt, and garlic salt. Dredge meat in mixture. Brown slowly in 3 T. hot fat. Add water and chopped onion. Cover; simmer 1 hour or until tender.

Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped parsley. Cover; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Now Char! Not one of these recipes has any calories! Have you seen any calories listed? Well, maybe just one or two, but all the rest of them? No calories; no carbs. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Laughing

And, yes, I believe it was Tru that posted that wonderful soft cornbread recipe.

Oh this would be a good one to try. I love blue cheese on a good Filet Mignon, but have never tried cheddar but I will now thanks Inky!

Yeah, mine's like that, too, Nancy. I like to think of it as well-loved. Very Happy I probably got mine about the same time you got yours; 1969 woulda been about right.

I have this cookbook as well, of course mine is a much newer edition but I really enjoy it. It has everything in it. Mine doesn't have this recipe in it so thanks for sharing this Inky.

I've got a newer version too, Sydney, in paperback form. I never thought to look and see if it's there. I just always reach for "old reliable." Wink Do you know how many cookbooks I've collected over the years? I'd be ashamed to tell you.

OK So I have plenty of cookbooks, starting from my grandfather's collection (he was a baker and had recipes for making 24 loaves of bread at a time...thank God for conversion programs today). Many of these I read like books, not because I have a chance to use them often. One of my more recent acquisitions was:

Food To Die For: Secrets From Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen by Patricia Cornwell

Now that one is a good read! LOL Laughing

That's an actual cookbook? I know there's a lot of great cooking going on in that series of books by Cornwell. Italian right?

Paperback? Mine isn't paperback I would prefer that. I will have to look for that next time I am in the book store.
