hi im a kid, and my dad always talks about how he wanted to eat a beef wellington again since he was little. he never got around to finding the recipe and for fathers day i made this for him and he loved it! i was soo proud and all of them went fast. THANKS
Okay, I don't know how the kid below me cooked this so perfectly but I'm 23 and have basic cooking skills and this came out mediocre...I guess can't be too hard on yourself on first try. First, I had to substitute the tenderloin for sirloin which came out okay. If you use sirloin I would suggest keeping an eye on the meat because it cooks really easily (mine came out too done). Second, I peppered mine way too much! You just want to sprinkle it lightly all over unless you like a lot of pepper. Lastly, make sure the surface for the pastry is floured like it says! Really important! At least I know how to perfect it for next time and hope this helps you too! :)
I thought this was a prettydecent, user-friendly recipe for beginner beef wellington-ers. I did notice in some of the other reviews that people were actually substituting with other cuts of beef and then complaining about how it turned out. I can't stress enough--DON'T DO THAT! You have ruined this recipe before you even start if you use anything besides a tenderloin. That's the whole point of wellington--to marry the delicate pastry with a tender and flavorful cut of beef to create a beautiful and very tasty presentation. Don't waste your time making this if you aren't going to splurge on the tenderloin.
This is a good recipe EXCEPT for being under-seasoned and leaving out the liver pate. My changes: I used 2 Tbsp butter, left out the water, and added 2 cloves of garlic and 3 Tbsp. chopped parsley to the mushrooms and onions as I sauteed for about 5 minutes, until the onions were tender. Seasoned lightly with salt and freshly ground pepper and beat in half of an 6.5 oz package of purchased liver paté (I use Paté Paysan from Les Trois Petits Cochons). Then I followed the directions and it came out very well.
These were absolutely delicious. I had only the individual puff pastry so I rolled them out and placed one on the bottom and one on top of 6 oz filet mingon. Another change I made was I Added a bit of red wind with the onion and mushrooms along with a bit of kosher salt. It was a big hit at our Christmas dinner.
AMAZING!!! Loved it, but I did make a madeira wine sauce to go on it and wowzers was it nummy! I made it with yukon gold mashed taters and asparagus with a cheese sauce. Molten lava cakes for dessert! It really was a great dinner!
I've made this before, either whole or individual beef wellingtons from tenderloin steaks. I'm just wondering who has a circle of friends/family in which 2 lbs. of tenderloin feeds 10? Wouldn't happen in my house!
I would have given this a higher rating, but I didn't like the meat I used because it was really tough! Also, I wouldn't cook it for 30 minutes because it was too well done and chewy.
