Roast beef with Yorkshire pudding
The dinner consists of the roast meat cooked in its own juices, accompanied by a cooked batter called Yorkshire pudding. This dinner is normally served with roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables and gravy.
Prep time: 45 minutes.
Total time: 3 hours 45 minutes.
Season the beef joint with salt, pepper and optional mustard. Melt half of the beef dripping and pour over the joint. Roast for 30 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and then reduce temperature to 375 degrees for 1.5 hours. Take the meat out to rest for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
Fill the holes in a muffin tray with the leftover dripping. Leave the tray in the oven until it is smoking hot. Make up the batter with the eggs, flour, milk, water, salt and pepper. Add a couple of tablespoons of batter into each hole in the muffin tray and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until the batter has risen. Do not open the oven in the first 10 minutes.
