Ingredients

  • 1 beef roast, 1.5 kg
  • 500 g button mushrooms
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 200 g puff pastry
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 beaten egg (for gilding)

Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (gas mark 6-7).
  2. Make sure the roast beef is at room temperature. Season all sides generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and sauté until translucent.
  4. Add the finely chopped mushrooms to the pan and sauté until golden and all the water has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 3 mm. Brush the pastry with the Dijon mustard.
  6. Spread an even layer of sautéed mushrooms over the puff pastry.
  7. Place the roast beef in the center of the puff pastry and mushrooms.
  8. Wrap the roast beef in the puff pastry, making sure to seal the edges. Remove any excess pastry if necessary.
  9. Place the Boeuf Wellington on a greased baking sheet. Brush the surface of the pastry with the beaten egg for a beautiful golden color.
  10. Place in the preheated oven and bake for around 40-45 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and crisp, and the internal temperature of the beef reaches around 55°C for rare, or until desired doneness.
  11. Once cooked, remove the Beef Wellington from the oven and leave to rest for a few minutes before carving and serving.

In conclusion,

Boeuf Wellington is a delicious symphony of flavors, with the tenderness of beef, the aroma of mushrooms and the richness of puff pastry. This classic recipe is perfect for special occasions or simply to indulge in an elegant, refined meal. Serve with seasonal vegetables and your choice of sauce for an unforgettable feast.
