Full Answer

Yorkshire pudding is actually a type of bread. It is traditionally cooked in beef drippings, although it can also be cooked in other oils or butter. It is best if the oil is very hot before the batter is poured into it. The batter is primarily made of eggs, milk and flour, and some recipes call for a resting period for the batter before baking.

Along with the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, the Brits often eat vegetables and potatoes. Sometimes, the meal is also served with a horseradish sauce.
