CHOKED ROASTED BEEF. Wash the beef, put it into a skewer, roast it like I said. When it's half-done, hit it. Be sure to put its broth to a pot. When it's in a pot, put white bread next to it; don't peel it, just clean it, then add some pine nuts, but not too much. Add some sage, a little onion. If you have lemon broth, add some, but if you have none, you can do it with vinegar, but don't pour too much into it. Find a pot, pour it to that pot, then add some pasta and black pepper. Don't remove the lid until it's done, after it's done, add the meat into it and the broths; but don't leave the bread there.
