    I have an 1956 Betty Crocker cookbook from my mother. It is titled Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book revised and enlarged. The cover has color pictures of a cherry pie, turkey OR chicken, corn on the cob, cookies. The pictures with the recipes are all black and white, too.

    I didn't know if Betty Crocker just reprinted older cookbooks ..... OR revised the cookbooks with different covers and different recipes. Thanks for letting me know.

    (My 1980 cookbook seems so differnet from the 1956 cookbook.)

    I so very hope that you get this!!! I had two copies of this cookbook but when we moved from Oregon our uhaul was stolen with everything we owned in it

    The most important recipe I need is the pepper steak recipe - my kids love it and I turn it into a stir fry!!!!

    If you can help me, I will be forever thankful!!!

    Hi Toni,

    I didn't get this from Betty Crocker Cookbook; but from the BC website.

    I hope this is what you were looking for:

    Pepper Steak

    Bell pepper adds a spicy flavor to this hearty beef steak. Perfect when you want dinner to be ready in 45 minutes

     
     

    1 1/2-lb beef top round or sirloin steak, 3/4 to 1 inch thick

    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
     
    1 cup water

    1 medium onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices

    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
     
    1/2 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
     
    2 medium green bell peppers, cut into 3/4-inch strips
     

    1 tablespoon cornstarch

    2 teaspoons sugar, if desired

    2 tablespoons soy sauce

    2 medium tomatoes

    6 cups hot cooked rice

     
    1 Remove fat from beef. Cut beef into 2x1/4-inch strips. (Beef is easier to cut if partially frozen, 30 to 60 minutes.)

    2 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil about 5 minutes, turning frequently, until brown.

    3 Stir in water, onion, garlic and gingerroot. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes for round steak, 5 to 8 minutes for sirloin steak, adding bell peppers during last 5 minutes of simmering, until beef is tender and peppers are crisp-tender.

    4 In small bowl, mix cornstarch, sugar and soy sauce; stir into beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; reduce heat to low.

    5 Cut each tomato into 8 wedges; place on beef mixture. Cover and cook over low heat about 3 minutes or just until tomatoes are heated through. Serve with rice.
