This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Onion Leaves With 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:

ONION LEAVES WITH BEEF. Wash the roasted meat, put it onto a skewer, wash it and add some salt, then roast it. When making the soup, peel the onion and wash it in clean water. Slice it in a clean pot and pour the beef soup onto it. If you're serving this to only one table, you may use only three or four onions; boil them, but spare the onion, remove the soup, add some vinegar, ginger and black pepper; after the roasted meat is done, beat it so the salt will fall off, slice it onto a plate then pour the soup onto it.
