Day #18 – Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding

It’s a bit funny when I decide to cook a meal and I refer back to one of my own blogs for guidance. I feel a bit fancy, really. Like this whole cooking-and-blogging thing is actually working! Cooking Roast Beef once more because, as previously mentioned, we have a freezer full of beef and lamb. I used the same recipe that I used on Day #5 because it worked so well the first time. Today, however, I was determined to make Yorkshire Puddings as well. Yum. I mean, just – Yum. And, I added roast kumara in as well (kumara = sweet potato = yummo)

I am not a fan of soy milk. I guess it’s fair to say I’m not really a fan of regular milk either, but I find soy milk tastes a bit peculiar. Having a dairy free little lass means that we are trying more and more soy products. BabyGirl had a soy Fluffy today at the coffee shop (for those unfamiliar, a Fluffy is a little milk drink that kids get when Mums and Dads get coffees. Very cute. Comes with marshmallows and, if you are lucky, a chocolate fish!) and she was not a fan at all. Luckily her little buddy was on hand to drink it!

Milk is a key component of yorkshire pudding so I needed to buy Soy Milk and give it a go. I was concerned that the taste would overpower but I was pleasantly surprised 🙂

Roast Beef, Gravy, Potatoes

Refer Day #5, the recipe is identical except today I used Topside beef instead of Rump. And, I added in kumara. Because, yum.

Yorkshire Pudding

80g Flour

1 egg

125ml Soy Milk

Oil/Fat to cook

In a cupcake tray/patty pan thingamee (highly technical term), fill each little hole with about 5mm of oil. Preheat the oven to 220C and when oven is hot, put the tray in. Heat the oil for 5 minutes. In that time, whisk the ingredients together in a bowl to form a thickish batter. Once 5 minutes has passed, add the batter into the trays and cook until risen (about 15 minutes).

Verdict

Yum. Win x 1,000,000. This roast was long awaited (due to my meeting taking longer than planned, poor Mr T waited very patiently for me to come home!) and well worth the wait. To quote Mr T, “that meat was exceptional, the potatoes and kumara were splendid, the gravy was awesome and the yorkshire puddings were to die for. Did I mention the meat?”.

So, there you go. And, there are leftovers. Although, I do admit when looking at that picture, the meal was lacking anything of colour! I seem to have forgotten the peas and carrots. Oh well. YOLO.
