Beef and Beans With Sweet Potato and Yorkshire Puddings

Beef and Beans With Sweet Potato and Yorkshire Puddings

Posted 2017-07-15 by Naomi follow
Fluffy puddings, melt in your mouth meat and delicious mash. The secret to these puddings is to have the oil really hot before adding the batter and not opening the door early (or they will sink!).

The casserole is dark, rich, goes well with the sweet potato mash and is worth the wait. Enjoy!
