An old meat paste recipe that was given to my mother in the 1950's. It is very easy to make and goes well on crackers as pate or on sandwiches. I recently made it as my grandson who is 14 months won't swallow lumpy food and I found this to be an excellent way to get him to eat a little meat.
- 1 lb beef steak
- 1⁄4 lb bacon, lean
- 1⁄4 lb butter
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon mace, ground
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
- Chop the steak and bacon.
- Place all ingredients in a bowl
- Place bowl in large pot with water that comes approximately half way up the sides of the bowl.
- Cover with lid and steam for 3 hours.
- Mince or blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Pour into jars and seal with melted butter or sealing wax.
- Store in fridge .
Yum! Came out perfectly and had a nice hint of smokiness from the bacon and Worcestershire. I noticed with the fairly wide bowl I used a fair bit of condensed water ended up back in the mix so not all the liquid was needed, I started with the solids and poured in the liquid to get the desired consistency.
