Sunday Roast Beef with Low Carb Yorkshire Pudding

Sunday in the UK often means a fabulous meal of Roast Beef, and I don't think there is a better known British meal than Roast Beef. I think you could perhaps call it the national dish of Great Britain and loved by almost everyone. But is there a good or better way to cook the perfect roast beef. It is actually very easy as you can see with these handy tips on this post here

To go with roast beef some Low Carb Yorkshire Puddings, and below are two suggestions you may wish to try. These low carb Yorkshire Puddings are a wonderful addition to a low carb or *diabetic diet, for those who are missing a traditional Sunday dinner.

1) This first recipe is made with Soya flour (Soya beans toasted and then milled into flour). This flour needs a lot of liquid to make it workable.
Carbs per serving: 2.5g
To make six Yorkshire puddings in a muffin tray
2/3 cup (40g) Soya Flour
3 medium eggs
100ml of whole milk
Pinch of salt
6 tbsp of sunflower oil
You can use a muffin baking tin or a Yorkshire pudding tin to make these.
1. Heat the oven to 190C
2. Pour a small amount of oil (sunflower or vegetable oils are best as they don’t burn or smoke in the oven) in each muffin or pudding tray and heat in the middle of the oven for between 10-15 minutes until really hot. (This is the secret of well-risen Yorkshire Puddings with any flour.)
3. While the fat is heating the Yorkshire pudding batter can be mixed.
4. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl using a whisk until fully blended, and leave the mixture to rest until the fat is hot enough for the puddings.
5. Give the mixture a final whisk just before pouring into the muffin or Yorkshire pudding tray. It will seem watery but will have thickened a bit by the last whisk.
6. Fill the muffin cups or Yorkshire pudding tray three-quarters deep with the mixture. It is a batter mixture and should be fairly runny.
7. Bake these in the middle of the oven and don’t open the oven for at least 20 mins after they have gone in or they will fall flat.
8. They usually take between 25-35 minutes depending on your oven.
9. If you have a fan oven they will cook more quickly. A lot depends on whether you like them golden or more browned and crisp.

These can be served with boiled vegetables, gravy and a range of meats, they are high in protein and nutrients. This recipe can also be used to make batter for things like Toad in the Hole, or can even used as a pancake mixture.

2) The second recipe uses almond flour
1/4 C Roast beef drippings
2 Eggs
1 C Almond flour
1/2 t Salt
1 C Heavy (Double) cream
1. Heat oven to 425F degrees.
2. Pour beef drippings into 9 inch square pan, tilt pan to coat bottom and sides.
3. Place pan in oven to heat about 2 minutes.
4. In small bowl, beat eggs slightly.
5. Lightly spoon almond flour into measuring cup and level off.
6. Add almond flour, salt, and cream. Beat just until blended. DO NOT OVERBEAT.
7. Pour batter into hot pan.
8. Bake at 425F degrees for 15 minutes.
9. Reduce oven temperature to 350F degrees and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

The good news is there are healthier flours out there for people with diabetes (or those that choose to follow a lower carb lifestyle) and both of these recipes use alternative low carb flours, you can read more about these flours here

I always thought Yorkshire pudding was an actual pudding when I saw it mentioned in books. What a surprise to discover they are sort of like pastries.

Not had a Yorkshire in ages. Easy to get gluten free but not dairy free. He made them one year with soya milk and they were nice. I'll need to try them with soya flour!

Yorkshire Pudding is something I never tried. Texture wise it may not be for me. I have a few texture issue with some foods. :)
