Makes 10 – 12 A LITTLE EFFORT
WHAT YOU NEED ROAST BEEF
½ tsp beef stock
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic, chopped
¼ tsp dried coriander
¼ tsp cracked black pepper
¼ tsp ground cloves
500g aged beef rump
100g self-raising flour, sifted
100ml full-cream milk
3 large eggs salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
canola/sunflower oil, to cook
2 tsp beef stock
water, to deglaze
2 tsp prepared horseradish
50ml fresh cream, whipped to soft peaks
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
pink peppercorns, to garnish
HOW TO DO IT
1 Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2 For the roast beef, combine the ½ tsp beef stock with the rest of the ingredients and rub the mixture onto the meat. Set aside to marinate.
3 For the Yorkshire puddings, using a hand-held electric whisk, blend together all the ingredients except the oil until smooth and slightly thick. Put the batter into a squeeze bottle and set aside.
4 Heat heavy-based frying or griddle pan until smoking hot. Sear the beef on all sides, keeping it rare. Transfer the beef to a plate and set aside. Retain the pan juices.
5 For the jus, using the same pan, add the 2 tsp beef stock and a few drops of water to deglaze it. Set aside.
6 For the horseradish cream, fold the prepared horseradish into the cream. Season, add parsley and combine. Check the seasoning and set aside.
7 Fill the holes of a mini muffin tray with oil to one-third full and place the tray in the preheated oven to heat the oil, 4 – 6 minutes. Check that the oil is hot by dropping one drop of batter in – if the oil sizzles, it is ready.
8 Using the squeeze bottle, quickly and carefully fill the muffin holes with the batter. They will puff up immediately. Bake them in the preheated oven until they are as light as air, 3 – 4 minutes.
9 When the beef has cooled, cut very thin slices and place in the jus.
10 When the Yorkshire puddings have cooled, assemble the dish. Fill each Yorkshire pudding with a little jus, followed by a slice of beef and a dollop of horseradish cream. Serve garnished with a few pink peppercorns.

Sorghum isa grain which originated in Ethiopia and is commonly grown in South Africa and Africa. It is best-known locally in its malted and ground form, Maltabella porridge. This superfood grew in popularity largely due to the fact that the sorghum plant thrives in drier areas. In addition, it’s extremely nutritious, being naturally gluten-free and rich in phenolic phytochemicals (which are antioxidants), fibre and iron.

“RICH COUNTRIES FAILED TO KEEP THEIR PROMISE ON FINANCE”
The recently concluded Climate Change summit at Glasgow drew flak from activists for the lack of adequate action to save the world but also won praise for some of the big decisions that were taken. India played an important and, at times, controversial role in this. Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Bhupender Yadav was India’s chief negotiator and, in an exclusive interview to Raj Chengappa, Group Editorial Director, he spoke about the gains and the big misses of the summit. Excerpts:
Rafiq sorry about antisemitic messages
Azeem Rafiq, the former cricketer whose revelations about the racism he suffered at Yorkshire has sparked a crisis in the English game, apologized Thursday after admitting to sending antisemitic messages 10 years ago.
