This recipe is for 25 pounds of beef, but can scaled down. Prague powder number 1 is a commercial curing product that can be found at sausage supply shops. You may want to reduce the amount of salt, as this amount was used as a preservative.

I scaled this down considerably to feed 20 people for a party at a friend's house. Even though there was other food there to eat my dish went fast! People were getting seconds and one guy even took a third helping!!!!! I ut up carrots potatoes rutabagas and cabbage to go with it. I left that party with an empty dish! I think that calls for the highest rating I can give it. Read More
