Please ignore major cooked on spills...I ran the auto clean cycle as soon as the roast came out of the oven!
I found the recipes for the roasted potatoes and Yorkshire puddings on a really cool blog written by an Englishman who had a hard time cooking British recipes with American ingredients and adapted the recipes for us. I was going to use his recipe for the tatties and the puddings but I found a different pudding recipe that I felt was more reliable and I was thrilled with the results of both!
But I have to tell you that what made this meal great instead of just good was the gravy! I didn't have any Bisto, but the pan drippings that I didn't use for the puddings went right into the richest beef gravy I have ever made and it made this food perfect!Doesn't it just make your mouth water?
