Beef with rice. If the rice is good, wash it a few times. Slice the meat according to how many will eat. Wash the meat, add salt in a clean pot and put it on the oven. When the meat is tender, pass through a strainer the water to a clean pot and pour clean water on top the meat. If you still need some water, pass through a strainer the previous pot on top, it's better than clean water. Add some nutmeg flower and black pepper. When done, pour it on the rice and cook it. When serving it, make sauce from ginger and sugar. This is expensive, so if you don't like it, you can eat it without. Make the rice tender first then add it to the meat. If cooking for the sick, take care of the meat like I told you to, but add less rice. Don't add black pepper, add a little nutmeg flower. Don't overcook the rice. Add some parsley leaves. Don't add too much salt for the sick.
