Steak And Kidney Pudding Recipe

Steak and Kidney Pudding is a classic British dish that has been enjoyed for centuries. Its origins can be traced back to the traditional British cuisine, which emphasizes hearty and comforting meals. The combination of tender steak and succulent kidney, encased in a rich and flaky crust, makes this dish a true indulgence for meat lovers.

Fun fact: The term "pudding" in British cuisine refers to a savory dish enclosed in a pastry shell, rather than the typical dessert dish that comes to mind for many people.

To create this flavorsome and filling dish, follow the recipe below:

Ingredients:
- 2 lbs. Steak (5d.)
- 2 Kidneys (1 1/2d.)
- 1 lb. Flour (2d.)
- 1/2 lb. Suet
- 1/2 pint Water
- Pepper and Salt (1 1/2d.)
- Total Cost: 10d.

Directions:
1. Make a dry crust by combining the flour, suet, and a pinch of salt. You can find instructions for making the crust separately or use your preferred method.
2. Rub the inside of a pudding basin with dripping to prevent sticking.
3. Take two-thirds of the crust mixture and line the basin, pressing the crust firmly against the sides.
4. Slice the steak and kidneys into small pieces and season them with salt and pepper.
5. Layer the seasoned steak and kidneys inside the crust-lined basin, making sure not to pack them too densely.
6. Pour half a gill (around 1/4 cup) of water over the meat in the basin.
7. Wet the edge of the crust with some water to help seal it.
8. Roll out the remaining crust mixture and cover the pudding securely. Press the edges together to ensure a tight seal.
9. Take a cloth and dip it in boiling water, then place it over the top of the pudding.
10. Secure the cloth with string, tying it tightly around the basin. Pin or tie the ends of the cloth over the top.
11. Fill a large pot with plenty of boiling water and carefully lower the pudding into the water.
12. Boil the pudding for three hours, ensuring that the water level remains topped up to prevent it from drying out.
13. After three hours, carefully remove the pudding from the water and take off the cloth.
14. Turn the pudding out of the basin onto a hot dish.
15. Serve the Steak and Kidney Pudding hot, accompanied by your favorite vegetables or a rich gravy.
