Mutton hashed the French way.

Take a Shoulder of Mutton, and roast it three quarters and save the Gravy; slice the one half and mince the other, and put it into a Pipkin, with the Shoulder-blade, put to it some strong broth of Mutton or Beef-gravy, large Mace, some Pepper, Salt, a big Onion or two, a faggot of sweet Herbs, and a pint of White-wine; stew them all together close covered, then take away the fat, and put some Oyster-liquor thereunto; add also three pints of great Oysters parboiled in their own liquor; these Materials being well stewed down, dish up your meat, pouring your liquor thereon, and uppermost lay your stewed Oysters with sliced Lemon and fine carved sippets.
