The food you see in the picture above is a traditional British Roast dinner. If I could eat one last meal in my life, it would be this. I've loved this dish every since I was a child. I even cooked it for my American author friend and her boyfriend when they visited and they loved it!
This is what a traditional roast contains:
Meat - Roast beef, or Pork (with crackling), or lamb, or chicken/turkey.
Roast potatoes - Cut potatoes in half, boil them until they're just softening, then put them in a tray of hot oil before putting them in the oven for an hour.
Roast parsnips - same as potatoes (only do half a parsnip per person).
Roast Sweet potatoes - same as potatoes (only do one or two small chunks per person).
Sage and onion stuffing balls - cooked in the oven.
Boiled veg - Peas, carrots, broccoli. Brussel sprouts, greens.
Yorkshire pudding - Make a batter out of plain flour, milk and 2 eggs. Heat up a tray with very hot oil before adding the batter to each hole. Put in a very hot oven for 15 mins (do not open the door at any time).
Gravy - beef or chicken, depending on the meat you're having.
Accompanying sauces - Horse radish for beef, cranberry for turkey, mint for lamb, apple for pork.
And, that's how you put together my favourite dish. It's famous because it became a traditional Sunday dinner a very long time ago.
If you give it a go, let me know what you think!
