    2 hrs


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Wash roast and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, making sure it doesn't touch any bone or fat.
  3. Bake on a wire rack inside of a large roasting pan in the preheated oven for 90 minutes, or to desired doneness. For medium-rare, the meat thermometer should read 135 degrees F (57 degrees C). Remove roast from pan, reserving drippings.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, beat the two eggs until frothy. In another small bowl, mix the salt and flour. Stir the beaten eggs into the flour. Stirring constantly, gradually pour in the milk.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  6. Pour the reserved pan drippings into a medium muffin tin. Place in the preheated oven for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour the egg, flour and milk mixture into the hot drippings. Return muffin tin to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until fluffy and golden brown.

Great Yorkies!! The only note I would add is from a friend of a friend- who's a chef in London England!!! - take out your ingredients and leave on the counter till room temp. - mix together thoroughly and refridgerate pudding mixture for one hour. -preheat the pudding/muffin tin for 3-5 minutes, till very HOT, and add pudding mixture- bake as recipe says.

Eeewww....meat was tough and tasteless...the pudding/bread/pop-over things were dense rounds of congealed baked goo. (My son, reading over my shoulder now, is suggesting I reduce this rating further to a ONE!)

Being of English heritage I too had this many times. Only diff. my grandmother used a cast iron skillet instead of muffin tins. It came out puffy and round so she cut it in pie shaped wedges. The key is getting the pan hot before pouring in batter so don't try to skip this step.

I only made the Yorkshire Pudding. I used about 1/2 inch of veggie oil instead of drippings (I like to save all the drippings I get for gravy!) I added an extra egg by mistake and heated the muffin tin in a 450 degree oven. (important!) I've found that the trick to perfect Yorkshire pudding is NOT TO OPEN THE OVEN during the first 3/4 of baking time. My puddings were perfect. I'm never swerving from this recipe; I've made it 6 times now and each time it's been PERFECT.

Excellent, especially the Yorkshire puds. Rather than waste the vegetables by roasting the meat on top of them and discarding them as one reviewer suggested, I too removed the rack but lined the roasting dish with non stick foil. I then added pieces of carrot, parsnip, kumara (orange yam), potatoes and butternut squash all tossed in olive oil and salted to taste, in with the beef for about 90 mins. Served it all with rich gravy and...viola! Sunday roast to die for. Sadly though not a scrap leftover for sandwiches!

This is one of the recipes that has help us revive the family tradition of getting together for Sunday dinner. The Yorkshire puddings make this meal special. We serve a horseradish sauce sauce with the meat and puddings. The flavors are great together.

I've read every review and haven't seen the way my mother-in-law used to make the Yorkshire pudding. Here is how she always served it. Baked in a pie plate as is this recipe, but served by sprinkling sugar on top and squeezing lemon juice on top of that before cutting! I had never eaten it before so this is the only way I know it to taste. It's great! Try it, you'll like it too :)

An excellent idea to use garlic powder. Never come across until now. We use English mustard powder, ground rock salt and five-corn pepper to dust the fat surface before roasting. When roasting, it's a good idea to get rid of the metal rack, and replace it with various washed, peeled (or unpeeled), halved vegetables: potatoes, parsnips, carrots, turnips will do. Just enough to raise the meat from the bottom of the roasting pan. This adds flavour, and stops the meat drying out. These are not intended to be served at table, although uses can be found for them. Remember also to steam potatoes, until a knife begins to go in easily, then set them aside to cool awhile. Then roast them in pre-heated beef dripping.
