Edward Warren Baked Top Round

Tonight's meal is an easy five ingredient oven baked triumph. Inexpensive and rich tasting use of a tough piece of meat! This is a deep beefy onion flavored meal with a great gravy and green vegetable baked right in.

Tonight's meal is named after Edward Perry Warren, a rich collector who defied convention and saved part of LGBT history. Read a short article about this man after the recipe.


1 – 2 lbs top round of beef cut into serving pieces
8oz of low fat cream cheese at room temperature
1 onion sliced thin
1 can of French Onion soup + 1 can of Beef Consomme
½ tsp garlic powder.
1 head fresh broccoli, rinsed and gut into florets.

5 red potatoes for mashing.

Slice up the onion, cut the broccoli and rinse, cut up the meat and trim the fat.
Pre heat the oven to 300 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking casserole and set aside.

When the oven is up to temperature, mix the soups and garlic powder together in a large bowl.

Spread the softened cream cheese on top of each piece of meat.

Press onion slices into the cream cheese and distribute the rest around the meat.

Arrange the broccoli around the meat and pour the soup mixture over evenly.

Tightly cover with foil and place in oven for about 2 hours. Check progress with an instant read thermometer stuck through the foil. Finished meat should be at least 150 degrees. Remove foil and continue to cook for another ½ hour.

While that is cooking: peel the potatoes and cut into 1 inch chunks. Place in water and bring to boil for about 20 – 22 minutes.

Drain and place in a large bowl. Add 1/3 cup not fat creamer and ¼ cup butter. Salt to taste and mash until desired constancy. When that is reached, stir in 1 egg yolk until well incorporated.

Serve meat on platter, use a slotted spoon to dish out the broccoli into a serving bowl. Another bowl for mashed potatoes and a bowl for the gravy.

What a rich meal for the Master!

Edward Perry Warren

Born in Massachusetts the year ABRAHAM LINCOLN was elected the 16th President, Edward Warren lived the life of privilege. His father founded the successful Cumberland Paper Mills in Maine.

He received his B.A. from Harvard College in 1883 and later earned an M.S in Classics at Oxford, (that school was more tolerant of his homosexuality).
At Oxford he met archaeologist John Marshall, a younger man he called "Puppy," with whom he formed a close and long-lasting relationship that lasted until Marshall's death in 1928.

Edward Warren is very important to our understanding of LGBT history. At that time, the turn of the 20th century all same sex references were being wiped out of histories. Much was lost forever. Then came Warren who collected “ancient pornography”. Vases, statues, cups almost anything that showed two men having sex!

In 1900 Warren published The Prince who did not Exist, a small edition art book from the Merrymount Press showing some of his collection.

Under the pen name of Arthur Lyon Raile, Warren wrote several books on the subject of gay love, including Itamos (1903), and The Defence of Uranian Love (1928). These were pioneering works on a subject that was “forbidden”.

They lived in Lewes house, in Sussex. Edward, so the rumor went in town, was a collector of fine art and young men. He is considered one of the most extraordinary figures in the world of art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Warren is perhaps best known for owning a 1st century silver cup known as the “Warren Cup”. The cup clearly shows two male couples having sex!

In early Greek culture, it was common place for two men of equal rank to be in a same sex relationship and have sex.

In the latter Roman society it was looked on as normal only as long as the “penetrative partner” was of a higher social class or a much older man.

The cup shows one equal couple, Greek style, and one in the later Roman style. These bits of our history are preserved only because of a few collectors like Warren, could get by with saving them. 
Only the very rich and privileged were afforded the right to preserve such things even if they were not “fit for public display”.
