The Challenge: Beef Wellington

Mm mmm mmmm. Beef Wellington is something I have never have had before. I wanted to try my hand at this dish. I have seen this recipe a couple places, but thought we could improve on it with a few tweaks. I also just really wanted to make this. 

One of the keys is shiitake + oyster mushrooms. I like these two mushrooms because they are super flavorful and melt in your mouth. We marinate them in a number of spices as well as red wine and truffle oil (mmmmm). Then we wrap it in a flaky puff pastry and bake it. VOILA...PLANT BASED MAGIC.

Another key to this dish is pecans. Pecans are so delicious and a great nutty combination to this. They are not overwhelming but add this great rich flavor and nutty texture that take this dish to the next level.

Finally, I can't say enough about fresh herbs. Got to get some fresh rosemary for this dish...it really takes the cake.

Alright I'm salivating now...

Let's get into it!
