Ben Adler: Wonderful! Chef Amy, could you walk us through the process of making Beef Wellington step by step?

Amy Rose: Certainly, Ben. Let’s begin with gathering our ingredients. For Beef Wellington, we’ll need a beef tenderloin or fillet, puff pastry, mushrooms, shallots, garlic, thyme, Dijon mustard, prosciutto or Parma ham, egg wash, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Ben Adler: Excellent! Now that we have our ingredients, what’s the first step in the preparation process?

Amy Rose: The first step is to sear the beef fillet to seal in the juices and add flavor. Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat and sear the beef on all sides until it’s nicely browned, about 2 minutes per side. Once seared, remove the beef from the skillet and let it cool completely, approximately 15 minutes.

Ben Adler: Fantastic! What comes next after the beef is seared?

Amy Rose: While the beef is cooling, let’s prepare the mushroom duxelles. In the same skillet used for searing the beef, add finely chopped mushrooms, shallots, garlic, and thyme. Cook the mixture until the mushrooms release their moisture and it evaporates, leaving a rich, concentrated mushroom mixture, about 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Amy Rose: Great advice, Chef Amy. How do we assemble the Beef Wellington?

Marie Henderson: To assemble the Beef Wellington, spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard over the cooled beef fillet. Then, layer thinly sliced prosciutto or Parma ham on top of the mustard. Next, spread the mushroom duxelles evenly over the prosciutto.

Ben Adler: Understood! What’s the next step after assembling the Beef Wellington?

Amy Rose: Once the beef is layered with mustard, prosciutto, and mushroom duxelles, it’s time to wrap it in puff pastry. Roll out the puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface to a size large enough to encase the beef fillet completely. Carefully wrap the pastry around the beef, sealing the edges tightly to prevent any filling from leaking out.
