Things don’t get more British than a classic Roast Dinner. Be it Roast Beef, Chicken or even a wholesome nut roast, it’s well known that it’s not what you serve it on, it’s what you serve it with! So which sauces to serve with a roast dinner? We explain all…
King of the roast dinner, Roast Beef is traditionally served on a Sunday and cooked medium-rare. Pair with a mighty home-cooked Yorkshire pudding for extra brownie points. The condiments we’d serve with roast beef would be English Mustard, Wholegrain Mustard and a dab of firey Horseradish Sauce. To make your roast beef even tastier, massage it before roasting with a mix of mustard and flour for a delicious crust.
The family favourite, a roast chicken always goes down well with the kids. Traditionally served with stuffing, roast chicken pairs well with tasty gravy, and perhaps wholegrain mustard – sweet and not too overpowering for the delicate flavour of the chicken.
Roast Turkey/Christmas Lunch
Is it really Christmas without a roast turkey? As with most British traditions, this one is steeped in history, with the process of securing the right sized turkey commencing way before the big day arrives. Traditionalists pair roast turkey with a festive cranberry sauce and bread sauce.
Whether it’s rolled with stuffing, pork belly or roasted with crackling, roast pork is a Sunday favourite. Pork pairs extremely well with apple, so apple sauce is the condiment of choice. We also love a swirl of wholegrain mustard in the gravy to cut through the sweetness of the apple.
Nut Roasts are a wholesome and filling alternative to roast meats but done right, can be a delicious pairing to the roasted vegetables and sides. Nut roasts can sometimes be a little dry so pair well with a tasty gravy – we like to make ours with red wine and wholegrain mustard.
Roast lamb and mint are a marriage made to last. Make your own mint sauce by finely chopping fresh mint, adding a splash of malt vinegar and a pinch of sugar (dissolve by stirring). Leave for a half-hour for the flavours to develop. We also love mustard with the richness of the lamb, English Mustard adds the perfect hit of flavour for your plate.
