Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' Baked Beans

4 cups dry navy beans
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 pound salt pork, diced
3/4 cup brown sugar (or molasses)
1/2 cup catsup
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup boiling water
1/4 pound salt pork, cut into strips

Cover beans with water in a saucepan. Bring slowly to a boil or soak overnight.

Drain beans. Cover with fresh water and simmer slowly. When skins of beans start to burst, the beans are sufficiently cooked. Drain and add onion, salt pork, brown sugar (or molasses), catsup, mustard, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and boiling water.

Place in greased casserole and top with salt pork strips. Bake covered in a 200 degrees F. oven for 6 to 8 hours. Uncover for last hour of cooking. Add additional water or stock, if beans become dry.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' Beef Stroganoff

2 pounds boneless beef sirloin
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cups beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons tomato juice or paste
1/4 cup onions, sliced
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
Cooked egg noodles

Cut beef into strips. Season beef generously with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand 2 hours in cool place.

In large skillet, whisk flour and 3 tablespoons butter over low heat until mixture bubbles and forms a smooth paste. Slowly add beef broth, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Let boil 2 minutes.

Reduce heat and add sour cream alternately with tomato juice, still whisking. Simmer slightly 1 minute; do not let boil.

In separate skillet, quickly brown beef in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Remove beef from pan. Add onions and mushrooms to skillet with remaining tablespoon butter and cook over medium heat until tender. Put beef back in skillet with onions and mushrooms; stir well. Add contents of meat skillet to sauce; season with salt and pepper. Simmer very gently or cook over hot water in double boiler 20 minutes. Makes 6 servings. Serve over cooked noodles.
