WTF?! It's Beefy.

WTF?! is for dinner tonight? Let's blend dinner and side dish with this recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens Blender Cookbook (c)'71. It's right [and so wrong], beef. In a blender.

Stuffed Beef Rounds

2 pounds beef round steak 1/2 inch thick
4 ounces sharp process American cheese, cut in cubes (1 cup)
1/2 slice bread
1/2 medium onion, cut into pieces
3 stalks celery, sliced
3 springs parsley
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper [I often wonder why it's even listed when it's nary a pinch, wtf?]
2 tablespoons salad oil
1 - 10 1/2 ounce can condensed beef broth
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water

Cut steak into 6 pieces; pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Place cheese and bread in blender container; blend till cheese is coarsely chopped. Remove from blender to bowl. Place onion, celery, and parsley in blender; blend till coarsely chopped. Add to cheese.

Divide the stuffing mixture among pieces of steak. Roll up each steak jelly-roll fashion; secure with wooden picks or tie with string. Combine the 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper. Roll meat in flour mixture to coat. In 10-inch skillet, slowly brown meat in hot oil. Drain off excess fat. Combine beef broth and dry mustard; pour over steak rolls. Cover and cook over low heat till meat is tender, about 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Remove meat to platter.

Skim excess fat from pan juices. Combine with 1 tablespoon flour and the water; stir into pan juices. Cook and stir till sauce thickens and bubbles; pour over meat. Serves 6.

WTF? I thought using the blender would be a time saver. Ugh. And eww.

Head to your blender this weekend for a cocktail [I'll share a recipe worth of a blender bender tomorrow]!
