(Versao em Portugues no final da pagina)

Sunday roast is a traditional Sunday (really?) dish in England. If you happen to have a chance to have a pub lunch I suggest you go on a Sunday and try this mouth-watering meal. It consists of roast meat or chicken, vegetables, stuffing ,  Yorkshire pudding  and gravy. This meal is a small version of a traditional Christmas meal in England.

Hang on a minute! Did you say Yorkshire pudding? So, is it sweet?

Well, it’s a side dish really. It’s made from eggs, flour and milk (see picture) but it can sometimes be served as a dessert (I’ve never tried it though). Check it out the recipe here.

Oh! Are you a vegetarian? No need to worry! Many English pubs offer a vegetarian roast option called “nut roast”.

What is stuffing? This is something tricky for me to define but I’d say it looks a bit like falafel and it consists of dried bread, croutons with onions , celery, salt , pepper and other spices and herbs. Trust me, it’s to die for (yum!). Check out the recipe here.

Versao em Portugues:

Sunday roast eh uma comida tradicional dos domingos (jura?) na Inglaterra. Se voce tiver a oportunidade de comer um “pub lunch” eu sugiro que experimente essa refeicao de dar agua na boca. Os ingerdientes sao: carne ou frango assado, legumes, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding e molho (gravy). Essa refeicao eh uma variavel da refeicao tradicional do Natal ingles.

Mas perai! Voce disse Yorkshire pudding? Entao eh doce?

Bem, o yorkshire pudding eh um acompanhamento – salgado! Eh feito de ovos, farinha e ovo (veja foto no texto em ingles acima) mas tambem pode ser servido como sobremesa (embora eu nunca tenha provado). Para a receita, clique aqui.

Ah! Voce eh vegetariano? Nao tem com o que se preocupar! Muitos pubs ingleses oferecem a versao vegetariana do roast, chamada “nut roast”.

O que seria stuffing? Meio dificil de definir mas diria que aparentemente lembra falafel e eh feito de farinha de rosca, croutons com cebola, aipo, sal, pimenta do reino e outros temperos e ervas. Acredite, eh dos deuses (yum!). Confira a receita aqui.

Bon appetit! 😉
