Tyre Pudding

old photo of grandmother's familyA "handed down" English main dish pudding recipe from my great grandmother Lydia Butcher Seager. I had my first bite of the pudding when I was about eight years old. I was hesitant because it didn't look very appetizing. But I was wrong! It was delicious. The salt pork crust is the secret to the recipe's great flavor.

I have heard of these types of puddings but will probably never try to make this. Did it turn out good?

Yes. We make it every year for New Year's Day as a family tradition. The only time consuming part is cutting up the meat unless you buy beef that is already cut up into small pieces.

Now with everyone home because of the virus, this is a good time to try this. Buy chili cut beef at the market and their is no cutting involved.

Is this from the north of England? I grew up in London and never heard of it.
