A GOOD SAUCE FOR STEAKS.
516. INGREDIENTS: 1 oz. of whole black pepper,½ oz. of allspice, 1 oz. of salt,½ oz. grated horseradish,½ oz. of pickled shalots, 1 pint of mushroom ketchup or walnut pickle.
Mode: Pound all the ingredients finely in a mortar, and put them into the ketchup or walnut-liquor. Let them stand for a fortnight, when strain off the liquor and bottle for use. Either pour a little of the sauce over the steaks or mix it in the gravy.
Seasonable: This can be made at any time.
Note: In using a jar of pickled walnuts, there is frequently left a large quantity of liquor; this should be converted into a sauce like the above, and will be found a very useful relish.
