Mini Yorkshires with rare roast beef

I saw this in one of my favourite British magazines, Good Housekeeping. It's so simple and ideal with a good red wine.


  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon English mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley, preferably Italian
  • fresh herbs such as rocket and watercress to garnish
  • Filling
  • about 300 grams finely sliced rare roast beef
  • 1 sundried red pepper in oil, drained and finely sliced
  • 1 spring onion, trimmed and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon horseradhish sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream


  1. Sift the flour, salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix together the mustard, egg, milk and parsley and then beat into the flour until you reach a smooth batter. Cover and set aside for about 30 minutes.
  2. Brush 24 baby muffin tins with melted butter or oil and preheat for 5 minutes in an oven preheated to 240ºC. Pour in sufficient mixture to come three quarters of the way up each tin.
  3. Bake at 220ºC for 15 minutes or until well risen and golden.
  4. When cool, hollow out the centre of each Yorkshire and, working from underneath, fill with beef mixture. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
  5. Filling
  6. Finely shred the beef and then mix with the red pepper, spring onion, horseradish sauce and sour cream.
