Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pudding

Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding along with fish and chips and the full English breakfast are probably the meals most foreigners associate with Britain.

Indeed the French used to refer to the English as "les rosbifs" in much the same way as the epithet "frog" was attached to the French by the English. "Beefeaters" is also the name given to the aged guards of the Tower of London.

Beef was thought to make Englishmen strong and a young Mahatma Gandhi is thought to have tried it to discover the secret of British power only to regret it later.

Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pudding with gravy

In a traditional Sunday roast thick slices of roast beef are served with roast potatoes, peas, carrots and Yorkshire pudding covered with a gravy sauce.

The Yorkshire puddings are made with eggs, flour, salt, milk and beef dripping and are cooked in the oven.

Many pubs and restaurants in the UK serve Sunday roasts at the weekend.
