Will Rogers, the writer from the 1930s, loved his beefsteak and gravy. This was his favorite food that he made. However, the favorite food of his from someone else? He loved his sister’s beans. Often, he would write that he didn’t want dessert. Instead, if he had more room for food, he’d go right back for the beans, steak, or whatever it was they were eating that night.
He often said that the gravy was best made right after someone had fried up steak. Instead of making it with new milk, grease, etc., he used milk that was on the edge of spoiling to make his gravy in the fat and grease of the steak. That is why he loved it so much.
