    Need help with Yorkshire Puddings

    I love Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, but I need an easier way to make it.

    Ideally, you make the pudding from the beef drippings. I have two problems with this. One is that the meat is lean and just doesn't/can't produce enough drippings needed for the pudding. What little drippings it does make I need to make the gravy. The other is that by the time any drippings are produced, the roast is cooked and it's now too late to make the pudding (it takes about 45 min to bake).

    So I've been getting beef fat from the butcher and rendering it down - which takes a LONG time. Then I add purchased beef stock to that and then make my puddings.

    Is there an easier way?? One of my English friends who's husband swears her puddings are to die for uses olive oil instead of beef fat. I can't imagine .....

    Hi, the best way is to use beef dripping, but I use just ordinary veg oil. It needs to be smoking hot with batter the thickness of single cream. I find it better to make little individual puds rather than a big tray bake size. Hope this helps a wee bit. . good luck. I'll be round for some next Sunday as beef is my favourite!!!!!

    Thanks. I have no problem with the batter, mine rise and stay, and I do make individual puddings as well. I just have a problem getting enough beef drippings to make it.
    So you use vegetable oil as well?

    hmmm ... perhaps I will give it a try.

    I know some are going to say "yewwww", but I use lard and butter. I discovered the lard from watching Emeril on the cooking shows!

    I had the same trouble and solved it by laying strips of bacon over the roast so I had more drippings. The crunchy bacon tastes delicious for the cook only as she makes the pudding!!

    I always use prime rib, and always had enough drippings to make yorkshire pudding, my hubs and i love this cut of meat, its expensive, but worth it and we don't always make it.

    I have even used the fat from frying bacon that I have saved. Gives the pudding a nice flavour also
