XXXXVIII To make beef torteli. If you want to make beef tortelli, the meat must be well fat, and boiled in water of that of pork, and without that he who wants (it) can do (it) himself, and when the meat is well cooked, beat it with a knife and put in some pepper as much as is enough, not some other spices, nor eggs nor cheese, and it should fry in good lard, and make (sure) that the tortelli are salted decently, and eat them hot. If they are already cooked, they are good in the morning.
