England’s take on the Mexican meal wraps a Yorkshire pudding around meaty fillings.
Originally developed as a take-out meal or a quick pub lunch, the British take on the burrito features succulent roast beef (and occasionally vegetables) rolled up in a flattened Yorkshire pudding wrapper. Diners eat the meal burrito-style, served with a side of gravy for dipping.
Unlike its spiced, salsa-doused counterpart, this burrito is on the mild side. In fact, purist fans of both Mexican and British traditional fare have expressed their objections. But for those looking for a gravy-soaked dinner in a portable package, this pudding pouch shapes up to be the perfect comfort food wrapping.
