4.REGAL BRITISH REPAST

Roast beef, Yorkshire Pudding & gravy
Ingredients:
    -Beef roast- standing rib, top round, or eye of round
    -Salt and coarse ground black pepper
    -Pudding; Electric mixer required (handheld is fine)
        -7/8 cup flour
        -1/2 tsp. salt
        -1/2 cup milk (room temp)
        -2 eggs (room temp)
       
-1/2 cup water (room temp)
        -1/2 stick butter
    -Gravy:
        -2 tblsp. butter
        -2 tblsp. flour
        -1 cube beef bouillion, prepared, or canned beef
            consommé

Preheat oven to 550°. Rub beef roast with salt and
pepper. Place on a rack set in roasting pan. Place in pre-
heated oven, then immediately reduce the temp to 350°.
Bake about 20 minutes per lb. or 160° with meat
thermometer. Set milk, eggs and water out to warm to
room temp.

Pudding- Combine flour and salt in large bowl. Stir in
milk. Beat 2 eggs in small bowl til fluffy, then beat them
into the batter. Beat the batter well with electric mixer
til large bubbles rise to the surface. Place 1/2 stick
butter in lasagna-sized baking dish, heat in oven, with
the roast, until butter is melted. Then, pull the oven rack
out with the dish still on it, carefully pour the batter into
the dish, and push back into oven. Bake the pudding in the
oven until puffy and golden brown, about 20-30
minutes.

Now make the gravy- take drippings from the roast pan
and put in a skillet. You need about 2 tblsp. total grease;
if you don't have enough drippings, add butter. Heat in
skillet over med heat, gradually adding and stirring in the
flour. Stir constantly and let the paste cook a little
without burning. Gradually add 1 cup hot beef bouillion
or consommé, while constantly stirring. Continue to stir
and cook til the gravy is thickened. Season to taste with
salt and pepper.

The pudding acts as your starch, cut into squares, slice
the beef roast against the grain as thinly as you can.
Load up the plate with beef and pudding, then spoon
gravy over all. Okay, so this one's a little more
complicated. But every good cook needs to learn how to
make a beef roast and gravy, right? This meal is worth
the time and effort!
