Beef hashed.

In the making of a Hash of Beef, take some of the Buttock and mince it very small with some Beef-suet, or lard, and some sweet herbs, some beaten Cloves and Mace, Pepper, Nutmeg, and a whole Onion or two; stew altogether in a Pipkin, with some blanched Chesnuts, strong broth, and a little Claret; let it stew softly for the space of three hours, that it may be very tender, then blow off the fat, dish it, and serve it on sippets, you may garnish it with Barberries, Grapes, or Gooseberries.
