The Possibilities of Roasts

by Day Monroe & May B. Van Arsdale - 1917

For one of her Mrs. McChesney stories Edna Ferber uses the title "Roast Beef, Medium" as typifying a sane, wholesome, everyday existence. Probably the housewife has never given this somewhat allegorial interpretation to the roast, but her use of it shows an instinctive agreement with Mrs. McChesney. Patties and croquettes may do for "occasions" but roast beef is safe and dependable. The housewife uses roast beef for the family. It is wholesome. She serves it to company. It is safe, for the guest is seldom found who does not eat beef. There are many combinations of other foods which "go well" with this roast; when it is the main dish, menu-making becomes easy—whether the meal is simple or elaborate. The problem of its cooking is insignificant compared with the complications presented by the shaping of croquettes, or the proper baking of patties.
