    Ah! I was misunderstanding! I thought the whole thing, wrapped in cloth was lowered into water, or laid on a steamer with the steam surrounding it. I missed the part about the pudding itself being protected from moisture. I do get the idea.

    Rather like a Chinese steam bun? Moist but not wet.

    I think I really like the sounds of this now! :D

    Unfortunately, I'd have no idea where to obtain suet here. Do you suppose lard would make a good substitute as it too is an animal based fat? (It would impart a different flavor though).

    Some info about suet - because of the texture I don't think lard is suitable Tink. My mum would use lard in normal savoury shortcrust pastry.

    My Mum and Nanna always used Atora if they couldn't get to the butcher, and Mum still uses it now. Maybe you could get it in some shops in the US where they specialise in UK stuff for ex pats?

    Here is a recipe from good old Delia Smith with pics

    Oh my gosh, I am telling you Herself would love that! I think I'm going to try and run suet to ground and maybe surprise her with a pudding (not right now, but sometime in the future). Maybe a good target goal would be Easter? :D :D

    Sounds good to me!!! There are lots of recipes...I guess your basic British Steak and Kidney pud...but as I totally hate kidneys my favourite is is steak, onion and mushroom :D

    I loved the sweet ones Nanna used to do - a basic suet pudding with loads of Tate and Lyle Golden Syrup warmed and poured all over it, or my absolute favourite - spotted Dick!! :D

    Oh it would have to be steak, mushroom and onion for sure. I've not ever done kidneys and I'm pretty sure I don't want to start now.

    Yes! I've heard of spotted dick, and see it on the grocery shelf here, in tins. I know it is a dessert, but not sure exactly what it consists of. Will check out your link!
