So I felt like making a roast beef with roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding for dinner. My recipe called for a 3-rib standing rib roast (about 6 pounds). Well, a 3-rib roast ended up being 4.5 pounds and a whole lot of money. Geez, it's no wonder I don't often cook any beef other than ground - it's expensive. But, I bit the bullet and made an awesomely delicious dinner. The whole house smelled of beef and the fat on the outside of the roast formed a crust almost as delicious as pork crackling. Also, I'd never had Yorkshire pudding before and it was quite tasty, perfect for mopping up the wine and beef reduction sauce. Yummy!
