Boar's feet cooked as traditional English fare (5,4)


I believe the answer is:

roast beef

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'traditional english fare' is the definition.
'roast beef' can be an answer for 'fare' (roast beef is a kind of food). I'm not certain of the 'traditional english' bit.

'boar's feet cooked' is the wordplay.
'cooked' indicates an anagram (letters cooked into a new form).
'boarsfeet' is an anagram of 'ROAST-BEEF'.

'as' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for roast beef that I've seen before include "Sunday meat?" , "Traditional English dish" , "Joint" , "traditional meal" , "Typically 7 down dish" .)
