What is Beef Wellington?

Beef Wellington is beef tenderloin that’s baked in puff pastry. Between the beef and the pastry is a layer of duxcelle, which are finely chopped mushrooms that are cooked down in cream and herbs. A layer of prosciutto keeps the moist mushrooms away from the pastry so that the pastry can cook light, fresh, and delicious.

When To Serve Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is a labor-intensive dish (which can be prepared ahead of time) and involves some pretty pricy ingredients, like beef tenderloin. So it’s a dish best reserved for special occasions. I love serving Beef Wellington for Valentine’s Day at home, to celebrate anniversaries, and other milestones.

The Best Side Dishes for Beef Wellington

To make this a whole and well-rounded meal, you want to serve a vegetable side dish and a starchy side dish with your Wellington. Whether or not to add an appetizer is up to you and how much work you want to do. And of course, save room for dessert!
