METHOD

STEP 1

To make the Yorkshire puddings, place the flour and salt in a bowl. Whisk together the egg and milk in a jug. Add to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes to rest. Divide the oil among eight 80ml (1/3-cup) capacity non-stick muffin pans.

STEP 2

Preheat oven to 220°C. Season beef with salt and pepper. Heat half the oil in a roasting pan over high heat. Add the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until browned all over. Remove from heat. Place the potato and pumpkin in a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Gently toss until combined. Arrange the potato and pumpkin around the beef in the pan. Roast in oven for 40 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Remove from oven. Increase temperature to 240°C. Transfer beef and vegetables to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.

STEP 3

Place the prepared muffin pan in the oven for 5 minutes or until the oil is just smoking. Working quickly, pour the pudding batter evenly among the muffin pans. Cook in oven for 15 minutes or until puddings are puffed and golden.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, place the roasting pan used to roast the beef over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until mixture bubbles. Add the wine and stock and cook, scraping pan with a flat-edged wooden spoon to dislodge any bits that have cooked onto the base, for 5-6 minutes or until mixture boils. Season with salt and pepper. Strain into a heatproof jug.
