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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

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.
