Beef Wellington

 

It just came to me that there was still a piece of beef fillet in my fridge last night, so I decided to cook beef wellington today.

Main Ingredients:

beef, chopped shiitake mushroom & carrot (of course you can use the help of a blender), puff crust, salt, and pepper.

1, Sprinkle salt and pepper over the fillet. Rub a bit with hands.

2, Heat a pan, add in some oil. Fry beef fillet till each side turns brownish.

3, Beef fillet in a plate and rest for a while. Use the same pan to fry mushroom and carrot. When the juice comes out, drizzle in a little red wine. (I just want to add a little flavor, if you don’t have red wine, you can just skip this step.) Add in a little dried thyme. Turn to low heat and simmer for a little while. Season with salt.

4. Many chiefs cook beef wellington use ham. Yet, I don’t have . So I just go with my no-ham version. Place a piece of plastic wrap on the table. Pastry crust on it. (I just don’t have crust, so I use Roti Prata instead. Because I tried to use Roti Prata pasty in Apple pie before, and it turned out great. So Roti Prata is always a good replacement of pastry crust to me.)

5. Spread mushroom and carrot on the pastry evenly. Beef in the middle. Roll one end of pastry to the other gently. Tuck in the two sides. Twist a bit with the help of plastic wrap. In the fridge for 30 mins.

6. Preheat oven to 200 degree C.

7. Egg wash the pastry. Cut several lines or any pattern you like.

8. Into the oven for 20-25 mins or till the pastry turns golden color.

Cut it with a very sharp knife. Because the crust is really easily broken. A sharp knife will do a better job. Or you may get your beef wellington just like mine. 😦

Very fragile out layer. But the taste is super.

Easy Beef/Pork Wellington

My husband wanted to have beef steak, but we didn’t  have any at home. So I cooked Pork Wellington using the recipe of Beef Wellington.

The result was surprisingly good. Pork tested very tender and juicy.

The following is an easy way to cook pork in this way:


1. Season the pork with salt and black pepper.


2. Since the thick steak tests better, I used kitchen twine.


3. Heat some butter in a pan.


4. Put the pork in when the butter is heated. And fry every side of the pork.


5. Frying is done.


6. Stir fry chopped onion, mushroom, and garlic. Add some salt and black pepper powder. ( I don’t have other spices or wine.)


7. Bacon at the bottom, mixture of mushroom and onion in the middle, pork on the top. Do remember to take the kitchen twine off.


8. Roll the pork with bacon and make it a small bun. Wrap it tight and put into fridge for 30 minutes.


9. As to puff pastry, I chose roti prata, which is an easy and quick way.


10. Wrap the pork with roti prata.


11. Put it into fridge for another ten minutes.


12. Preheat oven 200 degree. You can make some decorative pattern on the surface if you want. Then brush it with egg. Put into oven for 20-25 minutes.


13. Dress the dish with some vegetables.

Enjoy your meal!
