Ground Beef Wellington | A Regal Meal on a Budget
Beef Wellington is one of those show stopper meals where guests let out auditable “OOOO’s” and “AHHH’s” as they behold the golden, flakey dough concealing luscious goodness.
The traditional Wellington is a challenge to make not only because of the technical difficulty of getting the fillet cooked to a perfect medium rare but also because it is very cost prohibitive. In this recipe we opt for using more affordable ground beef, but we do not skimp of flavor.
The mushrooms and onions which normally incase the filet are added to the ground beef. Smeared on the puff pastry is a wild mushroom pâté which adds tons of flavor to the dish. The ground beef is wrapped Prosciutto which creates a seal, saving the pasty from becoming soggy and it also adds additional flavor.
The end result is stunning! However it really is quite simple to make and not expensive. It is something you could even add to your weeknight dinner rotation.
