The British love of beef, particularly for lunch on a Sunday, is a part of the national identity. Roast beef is eaten so often that even the French started calling Englishmen “rosbifs” in the 18th century. Here’s a few other facts you may not know about the British roast dinner….
- The Sunday roast came to prominence during the reign of King Henry VII in 1485. The Yeomen of the Guard—the royal bodyguards—have affectionately been known as “Beefeaters” since the 15th century because of their love of eating roast beef
- During the industrial revolution, before going to church, people would put a joint of meat into their oven along with vegetables and potatoes. When they returned from the church service, their meal would have been slowly cooked over time and ready to eat
- Juices from the dish are used to make gravy, which is poured over the meal before eating
- A traditional feature of the Sunday roast is the Yorkshire pudding. These were cooked underneath the meat on the spit as a way of catching dripping juices as it rotated
- Historically, Yorkshire puddings were not served next to the meat of the roast as they are today. Instead, they were served as an appetiser with lots of gravy before the main meal
