Aunt Maddie’s Steak Roll Up’s

A visit to Madeleine’s, fondly referred to as Aunt Maddie was one of utter delight. All the women in our family were invited to spend the weekend with her about once every four months. Aunt Maddie said that the changing of the season’s should be celebrated with joy and a thankful heart. Aunt Maddie was my grandmother’s friend from way back. (Since they were in High School) Maddie was an unusual lady in that she was stuck in some century that I hadn’t read about, or experienced. Her marriage had finished with the death of her beloved husband, Corbin, who was fighting for his country. At least that is the way it was clarified to me. Grandmother said after this event Madeleine drifted off into another world all of her own and has not returned to our day and age since.

The visits to Aunt Maddie’s were always fascinating and fun. There was a routine that she always stuck to. We would be having tea each afternoon on the “Veranda” as Aunt Maddie called it. At our house we called it a back porch. This was my favorite place of the entire house. The back porch. (Grandmother said I had to call it a Veranda in the presence of Aunt Maddie) The view from the Veranda onto the back yard was a feast for the eyes. Grandmother said the view with it’s bird bath, climbing vines, grass that looked and felt like carpet up under your feet, along with the smell of roses mingled with honeysuckle was an invitation for her mind to visit days gone by.

At precisely six-o-clock in the evening we would be called for supper. I could hardly wait as Aunt Maddie was the best cook I had ever known. I would never be able to reveal this to anyone. Aunt Nelly, Aunt Nita, and Grandmother knew they were the BEST cooks that my taste buds would ever be acquainted with. From past experience I knew I best be letting them do their own thinking on this here subject. I knew which side my slice of bread was buttered on no matter who baked the loaf. So once again, I kept my mouth shut!

The smells coming from the kitchen were acting as a magnetic force. I took notice that each lady was gravitating toward the kitchen offering their help. Everyone knew that Aunt Maddie did not allow to many helping hands in her kitchen. She was very independent in the cooking department and question small help from anyone. Saying always, that it was her one pleasure in life cooking for people who loved it, then pleasuring in serving it to them. Tonight was no exception. Our table setting was as gorgeous as any magazine picture I’d ever seen. We were being served Steak Roll Up’s, Wide Noodles with Mushroom Sauce, Steamed Asparagus, and for dessert, Banana Cream Pie. I didn’t care what century Aunt Maddie was stuck in, all I knew was they sure knew how to cook back then. I was glad she hadn’t learned T.V. Dinners.

Steak Roll Up’s

2 lbs round steak (lightly pounded flat on both sides with meat mallet)
½ C Parmesan cheese (grated)
½ brick of cream cheese (softened at room temperature)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flour in plate. Cut steak into individual serving slices of at least 4 inches x 21/2 inches. Coat each piece of steak with flour on front and back, set aside on cookie sheet to dry. Using a large mixing bowl combine the cheeses, bread crumbs, V-8 juice, garlic, and spinach. Mix well with a large wooden spoon. Spray a baking dish with Pam on sides and bottom. Place about two tablespoons of filling on each steak slice, roll up and place in baking dish with the rolled side down. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the sour cream, mushroom soup, mushrooms, and the instant bullion. Stir well. Pour the sauce over the Steak Roll Up’s, cover with foil and bake 25 minutes.
