My first Beef Wellington. A lot of work, not 72-hour effort like the 2nd video below, but, it took me 2 days to get it done.
A couple of tips:
- You would need a lot of mushroom. I bought two packs of mushroom and it should cover the beef just fine. It just took a long time to dry the mushroom in a pan.
- I made my own crispy puff pastry. Please see the crispy skin from my Shanghai Savory Mooncakes. I think a store-bought would have been easier.
Despite my sore back after long hours of standing in the kitchen, the beef was very juicy, the mushroom was very tasty and the skin was very crispy. Overall, my Beef Wellington was well received!
