Yesterday, I read a book about British food. just as I knew, the British usually eat a light lunch and a big meal in the evening.There are normally two courses,a meat dish such as roast beef with roast potatoes (cooked in the over) and vegetables; and dessert such as called trifle. I'm interesting for roast beef with roast potatoes. but i don't know how to cooking?If you know,please share with me. Good day,mylotter.

I have read the other comments here and they make some good points but are not complete. Firstly, to make good roast potatoes, as has been said, par-boil them but having removed them from the water take a fork and scratch the potato so it has ridges and is fluffy. Also to cook with the roast you will need some Yorkshire puddings which you can buy or make and parsnips. Glaze the parsnips in honey and sprinkle with ginger powder before adding them to the oil. The other vegetables are best lightly steamed, brussel sprouts, my favourite, green beans, sweetheart cabbage are also good. For pudding, apple and blackberry crumble, or rhubarb crumble, spotted d1ck, treacle sponge or bread and butter pudding all the best urban

I am fairly familiar with British foods because I was raised by British parents so there were some things that we ate that were standard food for them when they still lived in England....I like some of it but some just makes my stomache turn LOL

Just buy yourself a joint of beef, which you like, and place it in the oven (normally there is a guide to how long to cook it on the label, but if there isn't you could ask the butcher. Then you par boil some potatoes and place them in the roasting tray with the beef, and they will roast up with the beef and take in the juices from the beef. You can add oil if you want to, although not everyone does this, it is all based on preference. Then just do some veg to go with it, as you would normally do. If you cook the beef slowly and for longer... like turn the heat down a little so you can cook it for longer generally you get a more succulent piece of meat, full of flavour. If you cook it for too long you will find that it could dry out, and therefore become tough. If you want gravy with it, like we do in England... then for an easy way... pour the juices into a jug, and add some boiling water, and add a few beef flavoured gravy granules to the stock, to thicken it, then you pour it all over your beef, potatoes and veg, however much you want.

I can help you. I am English and the tradirional roast dinner is eaten on a sunday and is delicious. Cooking it is really simple. All you do is buy yourself a good piece of beef and put it in an oven on a low heat and let it roast for a couple of hours. The potatoes are easy too. Just put your peeled potatoes into a pan of boiling water and gently boil for about 15-20 minutes. Then scoop the potatoes out of the water and place them onto a baking tray, drizzle with a little oil and a slight sprinkle of salt and put them into the oven on a high heat and bake until golden.

Unfortunately the idea of a British Sunday Roast has diminished greatly in recent years. We still have our Sunday roast but many families don't, it is thought that curry is actually now Britain's favourite meal!!
