The Best Roast

edited February 2011 in The bottom bracket
Aah I do love a Sunday. Apart from the traffic free(ish) ride and the general peace and quiet, the thing I love most is coming home from a long ride to one of the wife's roast dinners. Today was Roast Beef, Yorkshires and the rest, delicious. Although if I was on Death Row and had to choose my last meal it would be Roast Pork , crackling and the rest. So what I wonder is the most popular Sunday Roast, or if on Death Row what would be your final meal? I am not a student doing a survey so your answer wlll not affect my future in any way. ( I think!).

    Tough choice between beef and lamb, I have to admit. It was the 'Death Row' factor that sealed it, but there's not much between them.

    I'll take that as 2 for Duck then. Would add it to the options, but don't know how!

    I'm not too choosy between beef and pork to be honest. Although I do insist on stuffing and yorkshire puddings with ANY roast dinner, no matter what the meat.

    Beef, pork, beef, pork hmmm cant decide.
    Whichever it is it has to be with yorkshire puds, roast spuds, and mint sauce oh and lots of black pepper.

    I want a roast now and its only 11am :(

    Depends who's cooking.

    If it is a good chef, give me beef or venison.

    If it is me, it has to be chicken, because it is the only roast I can do right. I buy the best bird I can afford (corn fed free range), stick a lemon up it, cover it in butter, pepper, salt and herbes de provence and roast it. It always works.

    Other meats in my hands tend to dry up like leather-wrapped polystyrene :cry:

    It's all the poncey, technical cookery language that tends to throw me.

    When it comes to roasts, you can't beat the beef.

    Clearly, my cookery tips are the antidote to this:

    I like pork for the excuse of apple sauce and for the crackling, chicken as it gives the nicest gravy and beef for the meat itself. Not fussed on lamb (probably because as a Welshman I prefer my sheep alive - thought I'd get there first!).

    Best roast is a huge, but cheap brisket of beef, cooked at a low heat for a long time.

    All of the above, even the nut roast :oops: I am big boned and have a healthy appetite. My mum said that 50+ years ago and it is still true. But roast gammon is especially nice. BTW Yorkshire Puddings are greasy lumps of nastiness which give you indigestion and heartburn. FACT

    not if you use a silicone baking tray and use no oil. FACT lovely light thin and just turning crispy . nom nom nom

    Apart from being invisible to the naked eye, what exactly is a spit-roast?

    I just can't imagine eating gammon with gravy.

    Suppose I should try it really but no Yorkshire puddings? Unthinkable!

    Would Yorkshire puddings feature in a spit roast?
