Cut a round steak into inch square pieces. Put a tablespoonful of drippings and a tablespoon of butter into an iron frying pan and carefully brown an onion finely sliced into the mixture, being careful it does not burn; then add a teaspoonful of Hungarian pepper, taking care not to have the grease too hot, as the pepper burns easily and the gravy will not have the proper color; then add your meat and salt and turn the meat so as to brown it slightly all round, again being careful not to burn the onion. Then add a very little water and cover tightly and let simmer slowly until tender; sift a little flour over it and stir slowly into gravy; adding water enough to make the quantity; salt to taste. - B.
