Sunday Roast

A very Australian tradition is the Sunday Roast. And no I’m not talking about Nicole and Keith’s little one. One of our very British traditions that we haven’t been able to shake. And I am very grateful.


There is nothing better than to end the week with an awesome roast dinner. And I would have to say next to Steak and a mean Curry it’s up there as one of Mr Neurotic’s favourite meals.


A roast in our house usually consists of a roast hunk of meat. Our faves are Roast Chicken and Roast Pork. Then you’ll have a nice starchy side of Potatoes. Some of our faves are Duck Fat Potatoes, Pan Fried Crispy Garlic & Rosemary Potatoes or The Pioneer Woman’s Creamy Mashed Potatoes. And then there’s the veg usually in the Neurotic household it’s Braised Anchovy Peas. Sounds scary but I promise you that you haven’t lived until you have had these peas. FYI I hate peas. But I love these peas.


So who started the tradition? Well according to Wikipedia:


Sunday Roast dates back to when the squire would treat his serfs to a meal of roast oxen every Sunday to reward them for the week’s work.


A reward hey? I definitely think what I cooked tonight was a reward… or maybe I’m the one who deserves a reward for the awesome dinner… hmmm.


So tonight we had Pastor Ryan’s Herb Chicken, my way. The Pioneer Woman’s Creamy Mashed Potato and Braised Anchovy Peas. Recipes to come. For now, try and keep your saliva off the keyboard.



And tell me do you follow the Sunday Roast tradition?

    You know we do….roast beef and all of the trad trimmings is this entire family’s fave meal.

    I am a new convert to thr joys of a Weber roast – Andrew deals with meat and the pumpkin and I do the roast potatoes and the greens and of course the Yorkshire Puddings….

    Oh yum! We don’t have a weber, but we do often BBQ Roast our meat too. Slow Roasted BBQ Pork or even Pork Belly is DIVINE!

    Roasts here, but no set day on which we do them. I assume that will change as life get more routine as the years go on and the girls start at school. Then Sunday will probably be the only time I have to put one on.

    Yum!! My brother does the best roast in Australia. Unlike me he listened when Mum told him her secrets. Never tell my Sister I said that – she thinks that she holds the title of Australia’s Greatest Roaster. BTW in our family all the roasting competition is about the lamb.
    MMmmmm, I feel hungry now.
