PRESIDENT EISENHOWER'S RECIPE FOR OLD-FASHIONED BEEF STEW

This is the recipe as it appeared on White House stationery, except as noted in brackets.

2 lbs. stewing beef (prime round)

1 lb. small Irish potatoes

1 bunch small carrots

3/4 lb. small onions

2 fresh tomatoes

Assorted spices (thyme, bay leaves, garlic, etc.,) in cloth bag

2 1/2 pints beef stock

Salt

Pepper

Accent [monosodium glutamate]

Stew meat until tender, add vegetables and spices. Cook until vegetables are done, strain off one cup of stock from stew, thicken slightly with beef roux mixture. [Many cookbooks have instructions for making a roux, which involves whisking flour into a liquid.] Pour back into stew and let simmer until ready to serve (about one-half hour.) [Remove cloth bag of spices. Serves six.]
