Roast Beef with Onion Gravy and Mustard Yorkies

Roast Beef with Mustard Yorkies


Did you know it's National Yorkshire Pudding Day on Sunday? No?... neither did I until a few days ago! I don't think there's anything better on a lazy Sunday afternoon than tucking into a lovely piece of Welsh Beef, yorkies and all the trimmings. I always cook double the quantity so we can have leftover roast on a Monday. The kids have swimming lessons at different times this term which means eating at different times too. I don't like it but there's no way my 10 month old and 6 year old could wait for their big sister, so it's ding cuisine all the way!

This recipe notches up the flavours a bit with a lovely caramelised onion gravy for the Welsh Beef and a good dollop of wholegrain mustard in the yorkshire pudding batter. These few little tweaks make a huge difference to the end taste. I hope you'll celebrate National Yorkshire Pudding Day with me this year by making a yummy roast beef dinner.


ROAST BEEF WITH ONION GRAVY AND MUSTARD YORKIES

| Serves: 6 | Prep Time: 45 Mins | Cook Time: 1 Hour 30 Mins | Total Time: 2 Hours 15 Mins |


INGREDIENTS:

  • For the Beef:
  • 1 TBSP Black peppercorns
  • 1 TBSP English Mustard Powder
  • 1 TBSP Dried Thyme
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 2kg topside joint of Welsh Beef
  • For the Onion Gravy:
  • 4 TBSP Plain Flour
  • 2 Beef Stock Pots ( I use Knorr)
  • 3 TBSP Caramelised Onion Chutney
  • 2 TSP Marmite
  • For the Mustard Yorkies:
  • 175ml Full Fat Milk
  • 2 Large Eggs and 1 Egg White
  • 1 TBSP Wholegrain Mustard
  • 115g Plain Flour
  • Goose fat from a can

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Step 1:  Crush the peppercorns, mustard powder and thyme together with some salt, using a pestle and mortar. Stir in the oil, then rub it all over the beef.
  • Step 2: Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and sit the joint in a roasting tin. Roast for 15 mins per 450g/1lb (about 1 hr 10 mins) for medium-well.
  • Step 3: Remove from the oven, lift onto a platter, cover with foil and rest for 30 mins. If you’re making the Yorkies increase oven to 220C/200C fan.
  • Step 4: For the gravy, pour any juices from the roasting tin into a jug. Let the juices separate, then spoon 2 tbsp of the fat back into the tin. Sit the roasting tin on the hob and stir in the flour, stock pots, onion chutney or marmalade and Marmite. Cook for 1 min, stirring well to scrape up any beefy bits stuck to the tin, then gradually stir in 750ml hot water from the kettle. Bubble to thicken to a nice consistency, then gently keep warm until ready to serve with the beef, carved into slices.
  • Step 4: For the Yorkies, make the milk up to 225ml/8fl oz with water. Beat the eggs, egg white, mustard and milk together, then gradually add the flour and ¼ tsp salt. Pour into a jug.
  • Step 5: Put 1 tbsp goose fat or oil in each of 8 large Yorkshire pudding tins and heat for 15 mins in the oven. Pour the batter into the tins, then cook for 15-20 mins, without opening the oven. 
  • Step 6: Serve the beef with the onion gravy and yorkshire puddings with your favourite side dishes e.g. Creamed Leeks, Maple Roast Carrots and Sweet Potato Mash.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a cheesecake. If I'm eating out and there is a cheesecake on the menu, I WILL make room for it and any ensuing indigestion is well worth it in my opinion. Similarly, if you turn up at my house on a high day or holiday you'll find a homemade cheesecake being served. I just never get bored of them and have been known to polish off a slice for breakfast on occasion. One of my all time favourite cheesecake recipes is a baked raspberry one that gets an outing several times a year at the request of friends and family. Despite my tried and tested recipe, I thought it was about time that I developed something new to add to my cheesecake repertoire.

This no bake Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake was by all accounts a bit of a revelation.... in taste and looks! It's definitely got the WOW factor and I'm very glad I decided to 'branch out'.

The base of the cheesecake is made from crushed milk chocolate digestive bis…
