Beef Wellington in a Halogen Oven Recipe

 

Although it’s not the quickest meal to prepare, this recipe is straightforward and the result is definitely the best Beef Wellington that I’ve tried!

 

Serves 2-4

 

 

Beef Wellington Ingredients:

  • 1kg/2lb 2oz piece beef fillet, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp English mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 250g/9oz ready-made puff pastry

Instructions:

  1. Season the beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle with thyme.
  2. Heat a frying pan until hot and add a little oil.
  3. Cook the beef briefly, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Remove the beef and allow to cool then spread the mustard all over the beef.
  4. Roll the puff pastry out so that it’s big enough to wrap around the beef and completely enclose it.
  5. Place the beef on top of the pastry and roll it up to form a parcel. Brush the edges with beaten egg and press down to close.
  6. Brush the beef wellington all over with beaten egg and then place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  7. Place the beef wellington onto a sheet of buttered baking parchment.
  8. Transfer to the Halogen Oven to bake on 160°C for 30 minutes, until the pastry is golden-brown and the beef is cooked to your liking. Use the lower rack.
  9. You may need to cover with foil for the first 15 minutes to ensure it doesn’t burn.
  10. Remove from the oven resting for five minutes, and then serving in slices with your chosen vegetables.
