    Yorkshire Pud's Note:

    A delicious meal for two, worth saving for a special occasion. The long cooking time allows you to set the scene ie.light the candles and open the bottle of Rioja. The sauce is quite rich and needs only a simple accompaniment such as couscous or plain mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.
