Description

It is a misconception that Beef Wellingtons are really hard to do. They can be complicated as they do require a lot of time and preperation, it is worth it though. A tasty wellington with smooth mash, roasted vegetables and red wine jus is an incredible dish.

If you are planning a dinner party or a romantic meal, this recipe is perfect. I have tried a number of wellingtons in the past but this one is by far the easiest I have attempted. As mentioned it does take some time to prepare as it needs to set in the fridge a few times, although its well worth the time and effort.
