Rike's Beef Barbecue & Cheesecake Pie
Above are pictures of Rike's Beef Barbecue (page 172) and Cheesecake Pie (page 188).
The barbecue was an easy recipe as long as you can wait the 1 hour in the oven. It called for 3 pounds of beef, but I knocked it down to 1. Ingredients are hamburger, onions, catsup (that's how it's spelled in the book), chili sauce, and hamburger relish. After making this I am guessing hamburger relish is different than what I used. I used sweet relish, and it was too much for my taste. If I do it again, I would leave the relish out. However, the finsihed product still tasted good.
The Cheesecake Pie was..... fine. I had a piece and it tasted good. I gave the rest away and as far as I know no one got sick. The pie is made on a graham cracker crust. The recipe tells you how to make the crust yourself, but I ended up using a store bought one. I would not say my pie was nearly as good as some you get in restaurants. But...I can't remember the last time I got cheesecake at a restaurant.
