The Beef Wellington. One of life's great pleasures.
This cut of superb quality beef has been basted in a tangy, indulgent mix of Dijon mustard Truffles. Wrapped expertly in the traditional mushroom duxelles and packaged in golden pastry.
A beef wellington is as at home on the table in a 3 Michelin starred restaurant as it is on your table indoors and makes a perfect dinner for two.
It is supplied ready prepared with all of the hard work done for you and frozen for freshness along with expert cooking instructions to get the perfect finished product.
Cooking From Defrosted Instructions
Leave in the original packaging. Defrost in a refrigerator for a minimum of 24 hours. Cook from defrosted only.
Carefully remove the packaging, leaving on the baking paper and allow to come to room temperature for 20 minutes. Preheat oven with a non-stick baking tray inside:

Medium: 230°C / fan 220°C / gas 9
Well done: 230°C / fan 220°C / gas 9
Brush pastry with a mix of beaten egg and cream. Lightly oil the preheated tray. Carefully place the Wellington, without the baking paper, onto the baking tray and cook for:
Rare: 19 -21 minutes - rest 10 -15 minutes
Medium: 28 - 30 minutes - rest 10 - 15 minutes
Well done: 32 - 34 minutes - rest 5-10 minutes
Remove from the oven, insert a temperature probe into the centre of the fillet and rest 5 - 15 minutes before serving or until it reaches your desired finished temperature.
Rare: final rested temperature 45 - 47°C
Medium: final rested temperature 55 - 60°C

To serve carefully lift the Wellington from the baking tray and slice using a serrated knife.
