Tips on making good burgers – or eat one of ours #burger #york #yorkshire #goodfood

burger

Here are our 4 top tips on making your own burger:

  1.  Always use fine quality minced meat
  2.  After adding your seasoning and herbs, add a fresh egg and mix in thoroughly, making sure the egg is distributed evenly throughout the minced meat
  3.  The mixture must be ‘sticky’.  If there is too much moisture in the mix when made into a burger, the burger will break up during cooking
  4.  Add flour to stiffen the mix if it is to ‘sloppy’. We use rice flour, this makes our burgers gluten free. The flour and egg help to bind the mixture, helping to create the perfect burger.

Thursday Night is Burger Night at The Royal Oak

All our burgers are made in our kitchen from freshly minced meat, specially prepared by our butcher. We only use rice flour in our burgers so without the bun they are gluten free.

Burger and a drink for £11.95

  1.  Homemade, seasoned lamb burger.
  2.  Homemade, seasoned beef burger.
  3.  Cajun chicken breast burger.
  4.  Freshly made falafel burger.
  5.  Holme Farm venison burger.

All served with our freshly fried chips, salad, mayonnaise and onion rings.

Choose from two delicious toppings from:

  1.  Cheese
  2.  Bacon
  3.  Caramelised Onions
  4.  Brie
  5.  Black Pudding
  6.  Fried Egg
  7.  Mushrooms.

Then choose a drink:

  1. Bottle of Hobgoblin
  2. Stowford Press
  3.  Budweiser
  4. Coca Cola
  5. Sprite

We stumbled across the pub after a day of shopping around York. We were tired and had two hungry kids with us, we didn’t know what to expect but what a fabulously warm welcome as the owner and his staff found us a table for four and then promptly brought menus. Inside the pub is historical but quaint, warm and has gorgeous twinkly lights (always a winner for me!) it felt homely and is divided up into lots of rooms/areas so didn’t feel too busy. The food was great, the kids meals are huge and the quality was super. Me and the hubby shared some home cooked chips (absolutely gorgeous and home made), onion rings and garlic bread. The owner (I think) was really attentive and friendly to all of us including the kids which makes such a nice change. Genuinely one of the nicest places I have been, couldn’t have asked for anywhere nicer to round off our day. I would recommend this pub to couples and families alike.

The perfect Sunday Roast #sundaylunch #york

The Sunday Roast is probably the meal that is closest to our hearts…

Sunday Lunch is a bit like Christmas Day, an occasion when family and friends gather together and eat and chat, relax and have fun.

fresh_produce

What about the cook?..

A good Sunday roast can be one of the hardest challenges for any kitchen. The traditional Sunday roast of  meat and veg, unlike restaurant style dishes, doesn’t involve over complicated or fancy techniques and sauces. There is nowhere to hide, everybody knows what a good Sunday Roast should taste like and if you make a mess of it everybody will know.

To deliver a consistent roast is a skill, a skill that our chef has mastered. He won’t tell us how he does it and he won’t tell us his secrets but we have been watching him…

roast_beef copy

Tips on cooking beef:

  1.  A fatty beef  joint creates lots of juices to baste the joint with and is excellent if mixed with your gravy.
  2.  If the joint is lean rub a little oil into it.
  3.  If you want to serve 6-8 people and you want to have some left over, you’ll need a piece weighing approximately 5-6 lb (2.25-2.75 kg).
  4.  Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 9, 475°F (240°C).
  5.  Put the meat into the oven turned down to gas mark 5, 375°F (190°C) and cook it for 15 minutes to the pound (450 g).
  6.  You can place your roast on a bed of onions or other root vegetables.
  7.  Season with salt and pepper, herbs, even sprigs rosemary, which can be removed before serving.
  8.  Always serve with a rich gravy and Yorkshire Puddings.

Read what a satisfied customer said:

We came across this pub by chance as we were looking for another restaurants nearby. We arrived in York on a Sunday and initially didn’t think to have Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding for dinner but as we came across this pub and the pub pulled us in with their tempting Sunday Roast choices. They did not disappoint us. The pub was old but with character. The interior design was great and the atmosphere was buzzing. The food was wonderful with good portion and plenty of gravy. The other great things you need to look out for in a Yorkshire pub is the type of Ales they served. Yes, Ales drinkers will enjoy the Ales in this pub. I had two different guest Ales and both tasted brilliant in very different ways.
