Do You Have Pleasures of Cooking mags? Help Plse!

This is a real long shot, i know. Pleasures of Cooking mag., long deceased, run by Carl S., who founded Cuisinart in the early 80's. I realized today that my plans for Austrian Steak Strips tomorrow dinner- are challenged by my lacking the last pg. of instructions. Phooeeeeey. My crummy tattered xeroxed pg says this recipe was on a pg. 43 of ______? issue. It follows a strudel recipe so i'm guessing the topic is Austria or Skiing or..... There are some old issues on the web and i looked through their listed tables of contents but found nothing with that subject. So I don't think these issues have the recipe:
January 1, 1984
Vol. VIII, No. 3 November/December 1985
Vol. VIII, No. 5 March/April 1986
Vol. VIII, No. 6 May/June 1986
Vol. IX, No. 1 July/August 1986
Vol. IX, No. 2 September/October 1986
Vol. IX, No. 3 November/December 1986
Vol. I, No. 1 July/August 1987
Might you have a copy of the issue with pg.44 of this recipe?Thank you so much for even conSIDering this favor/labor of love!

I'm not familiar with the magazine, but a Google showed that on the Chowhound site, there's a thread by some big fans of the magazine. Two users say they have every edition: "addicted to cooking" and "mbcraw4d." The posts are from 2011 but hopefully they are still current users. Good luck!

LBF, I was just thinking another source would be the Cuisinart company itself. They probably have a company archive and are familiar with requests like this for issue copies or tearsheets.

The recipe is on page 43 of Vol.6 No2. I have the volume and while it is way too late, it is as follows:
1 large garlic clove, 2 med carrots peeled and cut into 2 inch lengths, 1 med. onion peeled and ends cut flat, cored and cut into a tube, 1 cup beef broth, 1/4 cup red wine, 1 Tbs red wine vinegar, 1 Tbs. caraway seeds, 1 tsp med. Hungarian paprika, 1/2 tsp marjoram,salt and pepper to taste, 1 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup flour. and 1 pound boneless beef round trimmed and cut into 11/2 by 1/4 by 1/4 inch.
Using your processor, thin slice the onion, med. slice the the green pepper, shred the carrots, and fine chop the garlic. Heat the meat over med. high and cook till browned, about 2 minutes then reserve. Reduce heat to medium add the reserved vegs, cook till onion is soft- not browned. Stir in broth,wine, caraway seeds, vinegar, paprika, marjoram and wine, salt and pepper to taste. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook 15 min. Add reserved meat and cook 2-3 minutes to heat meat. Whisk sour cream and flour together,off heat stir into the steak strips. Return pan to heat and cook another 1 minute of so. I hope you find this 3 years after the fact, and will continue to enjoy the dish. i miss this publication, one of the finest!

I am old enough to be familiar with this magazine. Does anyone remember the Alsatian Kugelhopf recipe from it and do you have it? I realize this is a long shot.

Thank you so much Jan! I am able to read it and printed it out as well (and it's very legible!). Thanks again! I wish I had kept this magazine.
