Recipe by Sandra Johnson

3 lbs. beef flank, cut l" thick, about 12X12" square. You may sew
several pieces together if necessary.

l lb. veal round steak, cut into long strips l/2" wide.
l lb. lean pork steak also cut into long strips l/2" wide.

Lay veal and pork strips on beef. Make a mixture of:

l tbsp. salt l/2 tsp. ginger
l tbsp. sugar l tbsp. saltpeter (available at
l tbsp. pepper pharmacies)
l/2 large onion, finely chopped.

Sprinkle mixture over meat roll (jelly roll fashion), and sew edges of
roll with heavy thread or cord. A large crescent-shaped needle works

Make a brine of 4 quarts water and 2 cups of salt. Place meat roll in
brine and refrigerate 10 days, placing a heavy object on it so it will
not float. After 10 days, remove from brine and cover with fresh water
and simmer for approximately 3 hours.

Remove from water and lay meat roll on board. Place something flat and
heavy on top to press it down. Chill and slice to serve.
