Our serves 10-12 Beef Wellington provides a generous portion of intricate luxury. A real show stopper at over 1.5kg. Like all of our wellingtons these are chef made and delivered fresh. We use only the best fillet which is wrapped in our signature mushroom duxelle, flavoured with a 6 year old madeira and freshly picked thyme from our kitchen garden. Finished with double lattice puff pastry. This product is made to order and sent fresh, consume in 3 days or freeze at home for up to 3 months. If freezing place in plastic bag to protect. If you choose to freeze, ensure defrosted thoroughly before cooking.
Beef Wellington Serves 10 - 12
- Remove the beef wellington from the fridge an hour before cooking, allowing it to reach room temperature.
- Pre-heat the oven to 240°C/220°C Fan/Gas Mark 9, and place a flat baking tray on the middle shelf.
- Unwrap the beef wellington and trim the grease proof paper to just wider than the pastry.
- Place onto the pre-heated tray, and bake for 20 minutes.
- Reduce the temperature to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6 and rotate the baking tray. Continue cooking for 25-30 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and discard the grease proof paper. Place on a cooling rack and rest for 15 minutes.
- Slice and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt to finish.
At Mucca we believe the best way to serve our beef wellingtons is to medium, where the beef is perfectly pink in the middle. Our instructions aim to achieve this.
If you have a meat thermometer, beef cooked to medium will have a core temperature of 36-40°C straight out of the oven, and 45-50°C once rested.
As with all meat products, cooking instructions are given as a guide and there can be variation between the size and the shape of each handmade wellington. If you would prefer your meat well done, we would advise you to double the cooking time of the second stage of cooking at the lower temperature. If the pastry is browning too much, place a sheet of foil over the top.
