On Sunday night we had Blee over for beef wellington. Now, G and I have made beef wellingtons umpteen times, including wee individual beef wellingtons for the Ten Course Dinner. We, naturally, are fans of Gordon Ramsey’s ridiculous show, Hell’s Kitchen, and were so stumped that these chefs were stumped by the art of beef wellington week after week after week. Com’on Gordon… you’re a master chef, for gawd sake teach!
Beef wellingtons take all of 15 minutes prep and then 30-or-so minutes in the oven. Do not be afraid of the wrapping meat in puff pastry, you can do it!
5) cover the beef in mustard of your choice – dijon here; 6) roll out your puff pastry
