I wanted to celebrate the end of a long week and the beginning of the weekend with a nice meal but didn’t feel like spending a ton of time in the kitchen.
I decided to experiment with this twist on Beef Wellington using some Black River Angus Steaks from Walmart that I already had on hand.
They are much more budget friendly then the filet that is traditionally used for Wellington.
I started by searing my steaks in a hot frying pan.
You just want to get some nice colour on the outside not actually cook the steaks through as they will continue cooking in the oven.
The steaks were then set aside and I fried up some mushrooms and onions in the pan.
Then I took one sheet of store bought puff pastry and cut it in half.
I placed a slice of Havarti cheese in the center of each piece of puff pastry and topped that with the fried mushrooms and onions.
I placed the steaks on top of the mushrooms and onions and then folded the sides of the puff pastry up over the steaks.
I pressed down on the seams to seal it well.
The Wellingtons were baked seam sides down on a greased baking sheet for about forty minutes until the puff pastry was golden brown.
This recipe takes very little prep time and leaves you with a very impressive result.
