Individual Beef Wellingtons Recipe

I have made a large beef wellington before and it was very nice and looked great, it can be expensive and also takes time to make. When there are only a few of you a beef wellington is not always ideal, individual beef wellingtons however are perfect!

This recipe is not only incredible tasty, its fairly quick and easy to do. I would recommend it if you are wanting to make an impressive meal for 4 or even a nice romantic meal for a love one.

This recipe was inspired by Jamie Olivers Beef Wellington – his recipe can be found here

Depending on how rare you want your individual beef wellingtons would alter the amount of time you cook it for. Roughly 15-20 minutes for rare and a little longer for medium/well done. I like my steak rare but I left it in the oven until it was well done as I want the pastry to be golden and crispy.

Once you are happy with it, take them out of the oven and let them rest for 10-20 minutes. Once you put the individual beef wellingtons into the oven you may want to think about what other things you are going to have with it. I would always recommend adding it with some carrots, greens and potatoes….yummy!!
