The Great British Roast Dinner!

As long as you have a joint of beef with a layer of fat then you are halfway there. The more marbling (veins of fat in the meat) then the tastier it will be.

Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes and Vegetables

  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F (240°C). To make the fat extra crispy, gently rub in a big spoonful of dry English mustard mixed with flour and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cook at original temp. for 20 mins. then turn down to 375°F (190°C) and cook for 15 mins. per pound. Add an extra 15 mins. for medium rare, or 30 mins. for well done.
  2. Yorkshire Pudding may be prepared after the joint is in the oven, and then cooked for 10 mins. in very hot oil at the end. It is a simple mixture of about 2-3 eggs, whisked together with a little flower and milk.
  3. The Roast Potatoes should be peeled and parboiled for about ten minutes, shaken in a sealed saucepan (this roughs up the edges, but don't go crazy). Dust the potatoes with a l;ittle flour and roast alongside the beef.
  4. Lightly boiled or steamed vegetables to taste: the most popular are - mashed potatoes, greens, sprouts, carrots, swede, roast parsnips *(see Roast potatoes), cauliflower and peas.
  5. The gravy is a mixture of the roast meat juices, the remaining vegetable water and a solution of cornflower. With the meat pan on the stove, ensure the meat juices and vegetable water mixture is boiling, add the cornflour dilution and stir away! The thickness or thinness of your gravy will depend on the liquid/cornflour ratio.
  6. Serve with English Mustard or Horseradish Sauce
