I Could Tell You... but They'd Probably Sue Me
There are few dishes as elegant and luxurious as Beef Wellington. So when I decided to start throwing dinner parties, there was only one thing that had to be on the menu: Beef Wellington! Now, at that point, I had never even eaten it before. But I had seen so many episodes of Hell's Kitchen that I felt like I knew what it tasted like.
So what did I do? I took to YouTube to watch the man himself make it. Over and over and over again...
I mean, I must have watched those videos 30 times each. But I was determined to nail it!
And the result...
A mess. But actually, I was so proud of it. I ended up making it 3 or 4 more times, with the same loose, soggy result. Then, as I was watching a more recent season of MasterChef, I noticed something different. They were adding a layer of crepe! I'm not sure when (if ever) GR modified the recipe, but I found no record of it on his website where I got the original recipe (except in the photo, which I noticed while writing this) or in the YouTube tutorials. Until...
This past Christmas, I received the Gordon Ramsay Masterclass as a gift. My family knew this was the perfect gift for me, and I highly recommend the $90 investment. And low and behold, what did I find? The missing steps to the recipe!
It's all about the crepe. That layer will absorb the moisture and protect your puff pastry from becoming mush. The mushrooms are also prepared differently, which I definitely prefer. Now, I feel like a pro. But don't get me wrong... It is a lot of work.
Now This is Beef Wellington!
Yum!!! Now, when can I host a dinner party?!
Call me. Let's look at our calendars!
Wow man, looks awesome! Nice work on a hard dish! I've eaten it, but never attempted to cook it myself, it's sooooo fancy! I can't wait to see what's next!
Thanks man. We still need to get you over here for dinner!
Yummm.. looks amazing my talented friend!
I've always wanted to try to make that...I just might now. Thanks friend 🙂
It is a show stopper! Good luck, and please share pics!
I just ate lunch...read this article...drooled over the pictures...now, I am hungry again...as if I did not just eat 5 minutes ago. YUMMMMMYYYY
? you're welcome!
This thing was magical! Dare I say better than a plate of hot, crispy, greasy bacon? Yes, yes we are! Top notch Chef Gary! Keep them coming?
Soooo...can we schedule a "dinner party" at my house on Thursday, November 23rd and Sunday, December 25th? LOL!
I don’t know if you’re ready to pay the tax on those dates. ? However, we can schedule something else...
Where is the recipe ?
Waiting on the recipe................ ????
Is there a recipe online for the Gordon Ramsay Beef Wellington?
Hi Marianne. In the post I link to this recipe: https://www.gordonramsay.com/gr/recipes/beef-wellington/ . However, the point of the post is to share that there is a step missing that they only share in the Master Class course; the crepe. Out of respect for Gordon Ramsay, I will not repost his recipe here, but you can find the recipe he has made public at the above link.
If this is a duplicate QUESTION.... What is the ANSWER?
What sort of crepe?
Just a basic, simple crepe. I did add thyme to mine though.
Can this recipe be prepared without using the parma ham? My guests don't eat pork.
You could certainly switch out for different deli meat. One that has a big flavor, maybe like turkey pastrami?
