This past week we had a wonderful group dinner at our marina with a number of friends. It began with prime rib as the main course on the grill. Another boat added garlic mash potatoes, I added the Caesar salad and there was carrot cake for dessert.
As there were several Canadians in the group, including the host, there was a request or two for Yorkshire Pudding. Well, I have never made it before so I was hesitant to volunteer as the resident personal chef. But I was convinced by a friend that we should do it together as she has made it many times and I needed to learn as there are many Canadians in Florida. I offered the oven and the galley of the Destiny for the making of the pudding.
We had a fun time making them, up and through our learning (for me) / the reminder (for my friend) that you need to be sure to put a foil lined baking sheet beneath the puddings or you risk having a smoking good time when the grease hits the bottom of the oven and starts to burn.
We opened the window and aired out the Destiny with no harm done. Although we did have a few good laughs along the way!
So should you be looking for a "proper" accompaniment for prime rib, you may want to give this recipe for Yorkshire pudding a try! They do go deliciously well with prime rib!
