beef With parsley

BEEF WITH PARSLEY. I told you earlier how to prepare beef, do the same again. If you want to cook it with parsley, then don't spare the parsley leaves; look out, too much of its black pepper and acid will foul the taste. Prepare it the way your lord likes it. If you serve a fifty or sixty-year-old man, then really cook his dish; if you serve younger people, cook according to their age, for the youngsters' beauty and legs are strong as well. Never serve an uncooked dish, no matter what your lord asks.
