Foodie Friday: Beef Wellington


It's Foodie Friday!
Here's the calendar.

Today we're cooking Bandwith's Beef Wellington!
1. Brush with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.


2. Sear on all sides. Bandwith did this on the grill.

Wrap in Saran Wrap and chill for an hour.
3. Remove from fridge. Arrange prosciutto over roast

Keep plastic wrap under the roast for easy handling.

4. Cover with roasted garlic and chill for wrap in puff pastry--brush the pastry with egg wash. Chill--puff pastry loves the cold.


5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until pastry puffs.




Let's eat!

Bandwith, you did a great job!

  1. I forgot to add: after searing, wrap the roast in plastic wrap and chill for an hour. When you reach the puff pastry step--chill for an hour, then pop into a pre-heated oven.
    I was afraid to add this because I'm worried that I will tamper with Mr. Linky! I fear him more than rats and bees.
    Hugs to all,

  4. Mr. Linky strikes terror in the hearts of users! I'm right there with you with the rats, (add wasps/yellow jackets for me, please.)

    Beautiful Beef Wellie! Love the idea of adding Prosciutto for an added flavor twist.

    Very nice! xo~m.

  5. LOL Gollum its okay to edit after adding The Linkster Man. I do it all the time. But I agree, he does make me feel like a nervous wreack every week. LOL

    This looks just beautiful, and its one of my fave meat dishes. I hardly ever prepare it, but this looked so easy. Bandwidth indeed, did Good!!!!

    Thanks so much for hosting Foodie Friday again, and for sharing this beautiful post!

  6. You're so funny, fearing little ol' Mr. Linky! I do love this time of year when grill season starts and males all over the world step up to the fire and cook for their women!

  7. We both brought the main course tonight ;) Your beef wellington looks fabulous and cooked to perfection - Mr. Linky would be brought to his knees!

  9. Wow...that looks good! I'm with Laurie...you can send Mr. Bandwith right to my house...I have a hardly ever used kitchen completely at his disposal! :-)
    I asked Mr. Linky about editing after publishing a post and he said as long as you don't change the code in any way, you can add or subtract...add pics...whatever you want to do...just stay away from the code, and no one gets hurt!
    I do it all the time...I just make a wiiiiide berth around Mr. Linky code...and all is well. :-)

  12. Well this was a very timely Beef Wellington post! I just tried using puff pastry sheets for the first time to make a tart from Easter leftovers! (It's at the end of my Foodie Friday entry.) I was so intrigued by your creations the last several weeks that I just had to give it a whirl. Young Bandwith's recipe looks wonderful! I just love to see young men at home in the kitchen! Nancy

  13. Your Wellington is perfection. What a beautiful meal. This would really impress my family.

  14. I've never fixed this before, but it looks so good, I'll have to try it sometime. Young Bandwidth is quite the chef!

  15. Oh my....this is so beautiful and I just know it is delicious!
    I can see you are a big fan of puff pastry...me, too. I just love it...for so many things.
    Thanks for this delightful recipe and for being such a great host!!

  17. Please.. tell Bandwith he has inspired me to try his version of beef wellington. It looks fabulous!
    I really would love a taste right now. Hugs, Terrie

  18. I second Laurie's comment...Can Bandwith come stay with me and prepare this amazing looking meal?!!!

    I am going to show this to my husband...he has a few kitchen skills and loves anything beef related.

    As always your photos are amazing!!!

    Have a wonderful Foody Friday!!!
    XOXO

  20. on ocassion, I visit Mr. Gordon Ramsey's TV kitchen and listen to him berate the psuedo-chefs about their Beef Wellington... I think he's made me scared to death to even give it a try...

    now.. thanks to you and Bandwith, who knows... maybe I'll throw caution to the wind and give it a try... as long as I can keep Gordon out of the kitchen... I think I'll be okay...

    ReplyDelete
  21. That looked delicious and your Bandwidth is so nice to have helped out with a great grilling skill. I'll be joining in soon! Thanks again for hosting!

  22. * Welllll, Gigi, if my Jim ever leaves me for "a younger woman", I think I'll find "a younger guy" for me (AFTER my breakdown!)... AND, one who cooks like Sir Bandwidth!!! Looks scrumptuous.... absolutely DIVINE... who cleans the DISHES/MESS afterwards? (SURELY not the C-O-O-K, right???)~~~ XOXOXO Linda

  23. I also have been a little weary to try this... but the step my step looked like I could handle it... Tell your son I'm impressed! Thanks for Foodie Friday again!

  28. I have never tried this, it has always sounded so daunting! After reading your post, I am going to give it a try! Bandwith makes it look like a breeze! It is almost a shame to cut it, it is so beautiful!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  29. Karyn's right, almost too pretty to cut. I've never even considered trying this...I have a slight fear of failure! But it might be doable!
    Happy Friday~

  34. I totally want to apologize for you...when I put my link to my blog recipe, it posted the wrong link...so....I re-did it...I can't delete my first one, so please feel free to delete it...how much damage can one person do just trying to post a recipe??? It's just not my morning...sorry!! Anyway...love you blog and your "Foodie Friday"!! Have a nice weekend!!!

  35. Looks great and I loved your first comment...lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. This looks amazing! It looks so elegant but simple to achieve!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh yum, anything is always better with puff pastry. But what if you wanted your beef cooked less rare?

    Justine :o )

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've always wanted to make this but, have found it so intimidating. After seeing yours and Mr. Bandwiths thorough instructions....I want to give it a go. To get a med well (pink not mooing) result would I sear it a little longer or would I cover the crust (preventing the crust from burning)so I could keep it in the oven longer? What puff pastry would you recommended? This Beef Wellington looks amazing...Bravo Mr.B!

    Sweet Wishes,
    Sara

  39. I was watching Hells Kitchen and asked my hubby if he thought it would be hard to make Beef Wellington and here you are the very next day and it looks like I could do it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I bet this tasted just as divine as it looks. Five stars for Bandwith!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You have a perfectly cooked Wellington, so I brought the side dish. I made Wellington for Easter a few years back, I think it's time to try your technique.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey, guys. I'm having breathing problems today and I'm just now getting online today. I will ask Bandy about the cooking tips. He used a cooking thermometer--I don't know the temp for medium.

    I do know he has a video on Youtube he wanted me to add.
    More later.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Gollum, this looks sooo good. I've never made Beef Wellington but Bandwith gives me courage. If we turned our collective four boys loose in the kitchen, it would be a blast! Mine both LOVE the Food Network. Men have certainly evolved in the kitchen, haven't they?
    Love your music and wanted to say Congrats on being a SIBA nominee.
    Hope you're breathing better today!
    Hugs~ C

    ReplyDelete
  51. I hate to admit this -- I've never even eaten Beef Wellington -- yes, I've led a deprived life~ It looks amazing though!

    ReplyDelete
  52. It looks so wonderful! I am so hungry, hubby would not believe it. lol I was hoping we would cook more delicious foods with your Foodie Friday and I might get to eat! lol I mostly live on Ensure,now for 2 years, just eat a couple of small meals each week. I do love seeing the wonderful food! This one I can just about taste. lol

    ReplyDelete
  53. I would call this 'Beef Perfection'

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sorry I didn't make the event this week... I've always wanted to make Beef Wellington but never thought I would be able to. Your recipe makes it look like I would be able to give it a try..Thanks so much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I just heard your music I don't know how long you have had Full Moon on there but I looove that song. I'm assuming you saw the movie? LOL did you read the books too? This song reminds me of Jacob, and I heard another person say that about it. I just wanted to share that with you! And also say WOW I have never seen Beef Wellington and it looks amazing!

    All the best,
    Allison

  59. Okay I see know there is a Theme for this Theme? I just thought the theme was food but now I see it should have been a Cinco de Mayo theme. I will try to pay better attention but I haven't had my coffee yet so I can't make any promises.
