Hunt’s Matchbook Recipes: Volume 1

I recently obtained more than 100 Hunt’s Tomato Sauce recipe matchbooks from 1957-1963. I thought it’d be fun to share the images and the recipes over a series of posts. I haven’t had the audacity to try any of these recipes, but if/when I do I will post the results


WESTERN CHUCK SUPREME (1963)

3 to 3 1/2 chuck roast
Meat tenderizer*
1 8-0z can Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup French Dressing
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Sprinkle roast with tenderizer according to package directions. Combine Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, French dressing and garlic powder. Pour over meat and marinate several hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Grill over hot coals to desired doneness. Makes 5 to 6 servings.
*If instant tenderizer is used, add just before cooking, following package directions.
Hunt’s Tomato Sauce is so easy to use! Just cook it into stews, soups, spaghetti, rice, meat loaf, eggs, fish, vegetables, gravies. Perfect for leftovers.

VEAL GOULASH (1960)

2 lbs. veal for stew, cubed
4 tbs. Wesson, pure vegetable oil
1 cup finely sliced celery
1 large onion, sliced
2 8-0z cans Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
1 8-oz. pkg. noodles, cooked
4 tablespoons chopped parsley

Brown veal in Wesson. Add celery and onion and cook until tender. Blend together Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, water, sugar, paprika and salt. Pour over meat. Cover and simmer 2 hours, or until the veal is tender. Lightly toss the hot cooked noodles with parsley. Arrange on a platter. Pour goulash over noodles. Makes 6 servings.

    I’ve been looking all over for the Hunts match book recipes! My dad used the recipes from the match books when I was a little girl. He asked me to find some of his favorites for him. Do you by any chance have the 7 layer casserole or Sheppard’s pie recipes/books?
    It would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift. My dad just had his 78th birthday, June 12. He raised me and my 3 siblings on his own. Cooked us dinner every night when he got home from work, the hunts recipes quick and convenient meals for a single dad.
    I would buy him the recipe book, if I could find a source.
    Oh I hope you’ll share more photos/recipes. Please?
    Kindly,
    Jill – grateful daughter. I love my dad!
