Ground Beef Wellington Recipe
This recipe, the one for the Wellington of minced beef that I have to repeat soon. How rich, how easy, how original! And all because of Jamie Oliver. It had been a long time since she made a recipe of her own (although always slightly versioned).
The idea of making this filling, which according to my wife is a giant meat patty, may not lack reason, it is very good. In fact it gives to make it with more types of fillings. Of course, always dry that the puff pastry does not give much, especially the purchased. But there will come a time of year with less heat to be able to do it with homemade puff pastry and then the recipe will win many points.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry (from the super), 1 onion, 1 carrot, 1 stick of celery, 1 potato, 2 cloves of garlic, 200 g of mushrooms, a teaspoon of thyme, 60 g of frozen peas, 1 egg, 500 g of ground beef, flour for dusting, olive oil and salt.
How to make ground beef wellington
First we cut the vegetables and greens. Peel the carrot and the potato and cut them into small cubes, like the celery and the mushrooms (the latter somewhat larger), and chop the onion and garlic.
In a saucepan with a little olive oil, sauté the vegetables all together for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and let everything cook well together for another five minutes. Seasoning at the end.
In a bowl we mix the minced meat with the egg, add the vegetables already slightly cooled and mix well.
In addition, spread the puff pastry sheet on the table with sprinkled flour. Put the meat lengthwise and wrap with the puff pastry. Paint the edge of the puff pastry so that it sticks well. It will help to put a parchment paper underneath first.
Paint the puff pastry with egg and place in the oven preheated to 180 ºC. Lower to 160 ºC and bake for 1 hour.
