Yorkshire Beef Puff-recipe

This recipe was one I found in an old church cookbook and have used it many times with great results.  If you have leftover roast beef, or in our case, we eat moose, so it's roast moose...it makes it go a bit further and is delicious!!  Here's the recipe!

You will need 2 C. flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 C. milk....

...4 eggs and cooking oil (the amount will vary).
 As well as about 4 C. of leftover roast beef (or moose!).
First crack the 4 eggs into a bowl and scramble them up with a fork.

Then add the flour, milk and salt.

Beat them all together for about 2 minutes.

Slice the leftover meat into small, thin pieces and....

...spread them over the bottom of a 9"x 15" deep sided pan
 ( I used my glass baking dish).Over this pour enough cooking oil to make a depth of approximately 1/2 an inch.  You can also use the drippings from the roast if you didn't use them to make gravy. 

Now, pour the batter over the whole works.

And it's ready to go into a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.

On the go.


You can either use leftover gravy or make a quick mushroom sauce to pour over top.The mushroom sauce is just a can of cream of mushroom soup thinned with a bit of water or milk and heated up.

  2. Sue.... I tried to Post your link onto our blog but couldn't do it. this is a fabulous receipe

  3. Wow. That sounds delightful. Must give this a try. But I gotta ask... Moose? Really?

    1. Lol! Yes, Kate..we eat moose. My hubby is a great hunter and never fails to fill the freezer when we need it. We actually do the butchering ourselves as well. So, for us, the meat we eat either comes from chickens we raise and butcher ourselves or from a moose my husband shoots. It is a family process of putting meat on the table. It might be easier to just head to the local grocery store and pick up a steak or something, but we know our meat is fresh, chemical free, and had a happy life.
