Yorkshireman’s Goose

Yorkshireman’s Goose: Of course, it’s not a goose dish at all, but a substitute for a tight-fisted Yorkshire man who doesn’t want to spend his brass on paying for a goose!


  • 8 oz (225g) beef liver
  • 1 onion
  • 1lb (16oz/450g) potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • Half a teaspoon of pounded sage
  • Salt & pepper
  • Beef stock or water


  1. Wash, wipe and slice liver. Dip it in the seasoned flour
  2. Parboil the onion, chop it finely and mix it with the sage
  3. Mix liver, onion and sage and put them in a casserole dish
  4. Add beef stock or water to part cover the liver and onion mix
  5. Parboil the potatoes, cut them in slices and cover the top of the dish to make a potato crust
  6. Bake in a moderate oven for an hour until the potatoes are browned.
