Why I Love This Recipe
My Grandmother on my Mother's side of the family was born and raised in England. Her recipes passed down to my Mother and growing up, our family always had a pot roast with a side of Yorkshire pudding. Yorkshire pudding is an English dish made from batter consisting of eggs, flour, and milk. The dish is usually served with roast meat and gravy and is a staple of the traditional British Sunday roast.
