Boiled Beef, Potatoes, and Cabbage ingredients:
2-1/2 quarts Water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Stewing Beef - 1-1/2 pounds
Potatoes - 3-5 pounds peeled and cut in quarters
Beef Bouillion Cubes - 6 to 7 cubes
1 Medium Head of Cabbage
4 quarts of Water
5 Cups Flour
6 Large Eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
Peel and quarter the potatoes and add to boiling stewing beef mixture. Simmer for 2 hours on low.
Precook head of cabbage with 2 T. water in microwave for about 13 minutes. Peel leaves off cooled cabbage and add to the beef and potatoes mixture. Continue cooking for approx. 20 minutes until cabbage is cooked tender, but not mushy.
To prepare the Conneflies:
While cabbage is cooking,put another pan of water (approx. 4 quarts) with pinch of salt on to boil.
In a 1-1/2 to 2 quart pan with a handle, put in the 5 cups of flour and 1/2 tsp. salt. Make a well in the flour with a soup spoon and add the 6 eggs. Use a table knife to cut the eggs and salt into the flour until you get a pebbly consistency. Then gradually add tapwater until you get a thick consistency that you can tip the pan to the side and cut off about a tablespoon size amount with a knife.
When water boils, tip the pan with the flour and egg mixture to the side and cut off tablespoon size amounts into the rapidly boiling water. After all mixture has been cut into the boiling water cook for 10 minutes. Then cover the pan of conneflies and cook for another 10 minutes.
Drain the conneflies.
To serve, put 1/2 to 3/4 cup conneflies in a deep bowl and spoon 1-1/2 cups of the beef and cabbage mixture over the conneflies. Salt and pepper to taste. We love catsup on the top.
My father taught me to make this as a little girl as his mother always prepared this dish.
