First of all, I need to say that this is the first time I’ve made Beef Wellington. A friend told me that this dish is more difficult and professional than any of the dishes that I cooked before because I have to do the puff pastry, moreover, I can’t see the beef inside which was wrapped by the pastry, so all that I can is guessing when the beef is medium rare. At first, I was pretty nervous :”) I did even choose another simpler dish with beef, but there’s something really attractive about Beef Wellington, esp about Gordon Ramsay. I watched like hundreds times the video Gordon Ramsay making his stunning dish and puff pastry. I watched, and learned. And here it is, my own Beef Wellington 😀
I’m gonna tell you about the dough. I used my little mixer to mix flour, salt and butter together. You can use your hand to do this step, but honestly, it’s definitely not a good idea. Your hand will melt the butter, and ruin the texture of the dough. So put them all in the mixer, after 15-20s, you got it, beautiful dry mixture for the pastry.
Hihi, sorry about the ugly shape, I don’t have enough experience to wrap perfectly. Anyway, when I touched the outside, I almost laughed out loud, so proud of myself. The puff pastry was really crunchy, and had beautiful color thanks to the egg wash ❤
Some comments: I love the crunchiness of the puff pastry, the medium rare beef (even though Vnese beef isn’t tender enough =( ). The mushroom fulfilling and the ham were perfect. I wish the beef was more tender, so this dish will be more attractive and delicious. If you’re finding a dish which is tasty, contains much flavor and suit to all your family’s members, look no further, here’s your chance to manifest your cooking skills.
Bon appetit with my Beef Wellington ❤
Delicious things don’t need big amount. Just one bite and you can feel all the flavors…..
I’m super excited because this dish is one step closer the professional level in cooking. I will improve my cooking skills and try to make many new dishes. Are you ready to see the little girl growing up? 😉
Again, thank you for reading this post. Happy Weekend xoxo
