    Traditional steak and kidney pudding. Found on the internet and seemed to be the most traditional recipe I found.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric

    For the Suet Crust Pastry

    For the filling


    1. 1
      You will also need a 2 and a 1/2 pint capacity pudding basin and a steamer.
    2. 2
      To make the pastry first sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Add some freshly milled black pepper, then add the suet and mix it into the flour using the blade of a knife.
    4. 4
      When it is evenly blended, add few drops of cold water and start to mix with the knife, using curving movements and turning the mixture around.
    5. 5
      The aim is to bring it together as a dough, so keep adding drops of water until it begins to get really claggy and sticky.
    6. 6
      Now abandon the knife, go in with your hands and bring it all together until you have a nice smooth elastic dough which leaves the bowl clean.
    7. 7
      It is worth noting that suet pastry always needs more water than other types, so if it is still a bit dry just go on adding a few drops of water at a time.
    8. 8
      After that, take a quarter of the dough for the lid, then roll the rest out fairly thickly.
    9. 9
      What you need is a round approx.
    10. 10
      13 inches in diameter.
    11. 11
      Now line the bowl with the pastry, pressing it well all around Next, chop the steak and kidney into fairly small cubes, toss them into the seasoned flour, then add them to the pastry lined basin with the slices of onion.
    12. 12
      Add enough cold water to reach almost the top of the meat and sprinkle in a few drops of Worcestershire sauce and another seasoning of salt and pepper.
    13. 13
      Roll out the pastry lid, dampen its edges and put it in position on the pudding.
    14. 14
      Seal well and cover with a double sheet of foil, pleated in the center to allow room for expansion while cooking.
    15. 15
      Now secure it with string, making a little handle to that you can lift it out of the hot steamer.
    16. 16
      Then place it in a steamer over boiling water.
    17. 17
      Steam for 5 hours, adding more boiling water halfway through.
    18. 18
      You can either serve the pudding by spooning portions out of the basin, or slide a palette knife round the edge and turn the whole thing out on to a serving plate- place veggies below around pudding and garnish with fresh sprigs of parsley.
    19. 19
      Serving suggestion with the pudding would be boiled potatoes, boiled carrots and spring greens.
    20. 20
      This recipe is taken from Delia Smith's Winter Collection©- I hope she doesn't mind, I did buy the book!

      Fantastic. Omitted the Kidney and replaced it with more beef. I also added a tsp of fresh thyme to the pastry. The meat was very tender. On my second attempt I added a tablespoon of Hoi Sin Sauce because I had no worcestershire sauce and it was amazing

      Delicious! I live in Canada and couldn't find suet at the supermarket so I used Tenderflake Non-Hydrogenated Veg Lard and it worked fine. We also don't like kidney so I left it out (Steak and Not Kidney Pud) and it was yummy. I didn't have a proper pudding bowl but I used a round oven dish about 3 inches deep and that worked fine. Came out of the bowl like a dream, sauce was perfect, pastry was perfect. Definitely do again - but next time I'll add some chopped carrots and celery to the meat and onion; maybe a teaspoon of Bisto granules to make the sauce even more rich and flavourful; maybe a cuople of allspice berries and a bay leaf. Would work with lamb too.
