BRISKET OF BEEF

BRISKET OF BEEF & YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS
BRISKET of beef is a great cut of meat for slow-cooking. We cooked ours in the SLOW-COOKER which we turned on in the morning before going out to work. All that was needed was to steam the veg and pop a few Yorkshire puddings into the oven... It was a lovely mid-week treat, with enough meat for another couple of meals. Our kilo of brisket was very economical too at just under £6.
Let your kitchen gadgets do the work for you: add stock vegetables to the slow-cooker, place the meat on top and fill with around a litre of hot water. The meat falls apart and has a really meaty taste. It's also low in calories and this plateful is around 450 calories - including the Yorkshire pudding (see recipe below)!
YORKSHIRE PUDDING

Makes 6 (muffin size tin)
75g plain flour
one large egg
115ml milk (we used semi-skimmed)
20ml water
salt/pepper
oil 
***
Heat oven to 190ºC (fan oven), 200ºC (non-fan).

Place dry ingredients including salt/pepper into bowl.

Add egg and a small amount of the liquid. Gradually whisk in the liquid - don't add it all at once or the mixture will go lumpy.

Let it rest if you can for around half an hour.

Put a drop of oil into each muffin well. Place the tin into a hot oven to heat up the oil.

Pour mixture into tin. 

Cook for about 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown and well risen.

Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
