Summer Food From Oma DeQ

I've decided to do the "girlie" thing (which I do once in a while) and offer up one of Mom's recipies. Warning: ingredients seem not to go together but give it a try, mush it all together and it's quite, um . . . delightful.


1 lb. steak (use your fave)
1 large onion, diced
1 large can of pineapple chuncks
7 eggs, hard-boiled
1/4 C. pineapple juice
4 Tbsp. butter
1 (15 oz) can of stringed beets
1/2 C. sugar
2 (15 oz) cans green beans, cut
salt & pepper to taste
2 (15 oz) cans carrots, sliced
2 Tbsp. mustard
5 medium dill pickles, sliced
1 C. mayonnaise
**7 medioum potatoes, cooked
vinegar to taste

Fry steak in large frying pan with some butter. Take out of pan and cut into bite-size pieces (or even smaller). Set aside. Fry the onions in the juices of the fried steak for just about a half a minute. Remove from heat. Add sugar, mayonnaise, eggs (finely crumbled with a fork), salt, pepper, mustard, and vinegar.

In large bowl, place the pineapple chunks with only the 1/4 cup of its juice and add remaining ingredients to the bowl. Mix well. Gently add the sugar/onion mixture and mix well together. Refrigerate overnight. Serve over red romain lettuce leaves.

**Cook the potatoes in skin, then peel when done. Don't overcook. Cut into small cubed chunks.

For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valley and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines, and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing...When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you. (Deuteronomy 8:7-10)
