  • 3 oz streaky bacon rashers rinded and finely chopped
  • 1 small onion skinned and chopped
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 oz fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 oz shredded beef suet
  • 1/4 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 egg size 6
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 thin slices topside beef weighing about 1 1/2 lb
  • 1 tbsp prepared English mustard
  • 3 tbsp seasoned flour
  • 1 oz butter
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3/4 pint beef stock
  • 2 medium onions skinned and sliced


  • Mix the bacon with the onion, parsley, breadcrumbs, suet, herbs and egg. Add the grated rind of 1/2 of the lemon and 5 ml (1 tsp) juice and season.
  • Put the meat between greaseproof paper and beat out with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  • Spread mustard thinly over the meat, then divide stuffing equally between the pieces. Roll up and secure with strong cotton or fine string. Toss in seasoned flour.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a shallow flameproof casserole into which all the beef olives will just fit. Brown them well, then remove from the pan.
  • Stir the remaining seasoned flour into the pan residue and brown lightly. Gradually stir in stock and bring to boil. Season to taste, then return meat to pan.
  • Scatter the onions over the meat. Cover and bake at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
