Affordable Beef Wellington

An affordable and alternative beef wellington – with Morrisons beef joint, which serves 8! A show stopping centrepiece which will dazzle your guests this festive season ✨



Ingredients

  • 1kg Beef Roasting Joint (only £6.99 per KG, stock up for christmas!)
  • 250g Chestnut Mushrooms 
  • 150g Woodland Mushrooms 
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil 
  • 2 Sprigs of thyme 
  • 3 Shallots
  • 1 Morrisons Puff Pastry Sheet
  • 10 slices Prosciutto Crude
  • 1 Egg 

Method

  1. Cut your roasting joint so the joint has an even diameter and roll it tightly in cling film to refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. While you’re chilling the beef, pop all your mushrooms in a food processor and blitz. 
  3. Finely chop the shallots and add them to a saucepan with the mushrooms. 
  4. Add your olive oil and two sprigs of thyme. Cook slowly and ensure as much of the liquid is cooked off as much as possible. 
  5. Spread the mushrooms out onto a baking tray to dry out and leave until cool. 
  6. Layer the prosciutto slices out on to a piece of cling film. Ensure there’s no gaps between then. These will wrap around the beef and prevent a soggy bottom! 
  7. Smooth the mushrooms onto the prosciutto and place your beef at one edge. 
  8. Pick up the edge of your cling film and roll.
  9. Open your sheet of puff pastry and place your rolled beef joint at one edge… roll again!
  10. Fold the ends of the pastry down and ensure that there are no gaps and pop this back in the fridge for at least an hour 
  11. After 30 minutes, preheat your oven to 200°C
  12. Remove your wellington from the fridge and beat your egg.
  13. Gently score a pattern onto your wellington but be careful not to pierce through the pastry. If you’d like to add any festival pastry decorations, you can… I added a star to make it feel nice and festive!
  14. Brush on your egg wash and place into the oven. 
  15. Cook at 200°C for 25 minutes. Once this has cooked, add a lose layer of foil and drop the temperature to 160°C and cook for a further 30 minutes. 
  16. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for a few minutes before cutting into slices and serving. 

*If you do cut any meat off to get an even diameter, save those pieces and make your own delicious beef stock! It’ll make the best gravy!
