Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anderson (A Love Affair with Southern Cooking) published her first cookbook in 1975, so she has seen numerous changes and trends in cooking. Her latest book includes over 150 updated recipes from 1950 to 1970 for beef, veal, lamb, and pork. They highlight less expensive cuts of meat that are braised, stewed, or cooked in a slow cooker. American dishes are prominently featured—Yankee Boiled Dinner, Country Fried Steak, Brunswick Stew with Pork. There are also recipes from other regions, e.g., Danish Fricadeller (pork meatballs), Lebanese Lamb Burgers, and Bavarian Veal Shanks. Many of the recipes require lard, bacon grease, or sour or heavy cream. VERDICT The fascinating notes that accompany the recipes illustrate the wide experience of this talented author. Recommended for cooks looking for comfort food on a budget.—Christine Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib.

I've made some delicious recipes from this book in the past that were literally fall of the bone good. This book has recipes for lamb, pork, beef, and veal. Cook from this book and you will have the most tender, juicy meat ever!!!!! My favorite recipe would have to be the Kansas City Ribs, and the Ginger Ribs-YUUUMMM. The only thing that "erks" me is that there are way to many stew and soup recipes, great for fall and winter though. Also, this is more of a weekend cookbook-a lot of the recipes call for the meat to be marinaded overnight and then cooked for up to 3-4 hours-certainly not a week night dinner friendly cookbook- Other than that its a great book with delectable recipes. Highly recommended.
