Please note: this Beef Wellington needs defrosting for 36 hours in the fridge before cooking.

  • The ultimate in luxurious centrepieces. Fillet is the very finest cut of beef (to make this at home, the meat would likely cost around £60 by itself!)
  • We prepare everything by hand in our Kitchen, even making the jus from scratch and cutting the pastry leaves that go on the top by hand. A lot of love and care goes into each and every COOK Welly
  • On the box (and in the cooking instructions below) you’ll find the precise cooking times, depending on whether you want it rare, medium or well done

Try It With

  • It’s delicious with mustard mash, but for the ultimate in indulgence, try it with Dauphinoise Potatoes
  • With all those decadent flavours, the only veg you will need are some steamed seasonal greens, like tenderstem broccoli, and maybe some roasted parsnips
  • Be sure to dish onto warmed plates

Wine Pairings

  • A classic Bordeaux, specifically a Merlot based one if possible, like Saint Emilion or Pomerol. If Bordeaux isn’t your thing then a good Chilean Merlot would be great, too.

Serving Tips

To get the beef exactly how you like it, use a decent temperature probe inserted into the centre of the meat. The temperatures for beef straight out of the oven are:

Rare: 50°C - 52°C

Medium Rare: 55°C - 57°C

Medium: 61°C - 63°C

Well Done: 69°C - 71°C

It’s important to let it rest for 5-10 minutes. The beef at either end of the Wellington will be more cooked than that in the centre.

Carve with a sharp serrated knife.

How We Make It

  • The COOK chefs season prime fillets of British and Irish beef and seal them by searing in a cast-iron pan. Then they make a mushroom duxelle by sweating onions and garlic in butter along with a little thyme. They add chopped porcini mushrooms, porcini mushroom stock, wholegrain mustard and Madeira, along with chopped cup and chestnut mushrooms. This is cooked out to intensify the flavour and evaporate any excess moisture (because no one likes a soggy bottom). Then we add a dash of double cream and some roasted Portobello mushroom pieces.
  • Next, our Pastry Team cover the sealed beef fillets with a hand-made chicken liver pâté to add a rich, savoury flavour and carefully spread the mushroom duxelle on to the top of the fillets and wrap them in a thin crêpe. Finally it’s wrapped in all-butter puff pastry, glazed with egg yolk, decorated with handmade pastry leaves and sprinkled with poppy seeds.
  • A recipe this special needs a spectacular sauce, so we’ve created a very sophisticated jus made from simmering red wine, port, redcurrant jelly, British beef stock, porcini mushroom stock and bay leaves together until reduced down to the perfect consistency. Real luxury.
