Groaty pudding (also known as groaty dick[1]) is a traditional dish from the Black Country in England. It is made from soaked groats, beef, leeks, onion and beef stock which are baked together at a moderate temperature of approximately 150 °C (302 °F) for up to 16 hours. In the Black Country it is traditional to eat groaty pudding on Guy Fawkes Night.[2]

It is mentioned as a local staple by Samuel Jackson Pratt in 1805.[3]
