Oli’s Roast PotaToad in the Hole with Slow Cooked British Beef Brisket 

“When Ladies in Beef challenged me to create a dish showing a twist on the classic Beef Roast it HAD to be my Roast PotaToad in the Hole. What better way to show off the naturally delicious British beef brisket and bring out its flavour than by slow cooking it and loading it onto a Roast Potato filled Yorkshire pudding. I’ve also learnt that British beef is amongst the most sustainable in the world (GHG equivalent CIEL 2020), making it a fantastic lunch or dinner option.” – Oli Paterson, @elburritomonster
