Introduction
This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from Das Kuchbuch der Sabina Welserin (Germany, 16th century - V. Armstrong, trans.), entitled "59 If you would make good smoked beef". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]


The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

59 If you would make good smoked beef. Then prepare the meat for smoking, as wide as three man's fingers, and salt it well so that it becomes white from the salt, and when the salt has dissolved, then skim it off and pour it over again or from the bottom to the top, so that the salt comes over it all. And when it has laid for four days in the salt, then hang it up and smoke it with juniper twigs. Let it hang for three days, then it is very red.
