Sunday Dinner

There's nothing I love more than a good roast beef done medium rare with yorkshire pudding & garlic mashed potatoes on a chilly Sunday night.  Yum!  So before you finish making up your shopping list for this week add a roast to it.

Roast Ingredients:

1 Beef Roast
1/2 medium Onion, chopped
Onion powder

Roast Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400*F.

2. Fill your roasting pan with about 1/2 inch of water and add the chopped onions.

3. Add your roast on top of the onions and lightly sprinkle the top with the onion powder, parsley, salt, & pepper.

4. Cover (or tent with aluminium foil) and put in the oven until the internal temperature is 150*F for medium rare.

Yorkshire Pudding Ingredients:

2 Eggs
1 cup Milk
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Salt
Vegetable Oil

Yorkshire Pudding Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450*F

2. Add about 1 tbsp of oil to each cup of a muffin pan.

3. Whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.  Then add flour & salt and stir until just combined - small lumps are ok (think pancake batter consistency).

4. Heat the oil in the muffin pan for a couple of minutes in the oven.  CAREFULLY remove from the oven and fill each cup about half way with the batter.

5. Bake for 15 minutes at the 450*F and then reduce the heat to 350*F for another 10 minutes.  Remove the puddings from the cups as soon as you can to avoid sticking.

NOTE:  I HIGHLY suggest putting cookie sheets on the bottom rack of your oven to catch the oil that will splatter while the puddings are rising to avoid an oven fire.  I forgot to do that this time but thankfully I noticed there was a rock concert lighting show happening in my oven before something serious occurred.  Enjoy!

Stay Sweet!
