Quick Yorkshire Pie

In researching this week's blog post, I discovered that George Washington was a fan of Yorkshire pies.  Well the original recipe is a bit complicated so I found this simplified version.


  •  3 lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3 tbsp ground coriander
  • 4 tbsp ground cumin
  • 4 tbsp crushed garlic


  1. Preheat oven and 9 x 13 baking pan at 400 F.
  2. Brown garlic and ground beef, cooking until beef is fully cooked.
  3. Add salt, pepper, cumin and coriander while cooking.
  4. When beef is cooked, set aside.
  5. Mix flour, milk, eggs and 1 tsp salt until smooth.
  6. Take hot pan out of the oven and spray liberally with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Pour 1/2 batter in hot pan, top with meat mixture and cover with remaining batter.
  8. Bake at 400 F for 40 minutes, until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  9. Serve hot.
