Beef Wellington

This is my way of making this wonderful Christmas Dinner.  I follow a mixed recipe from Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay. Each has a unique way they prepare this dish. I chose to combine the best of both versions to create my own. Enjoy

Beef Wellington is a preparation of fillet steak coated with pâté (often pâté de foie gras) and duxelles, which is then wrapped in parma ham and puff pastry, then baked. Some recipes include wrapping the coated meat in a crêpe to retain the moisture and prevent it from making the pastry soggy.
