I don't remember what inspired me to request Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution cookbook...oh, yes I do! I flipped through the cookbook while at the bookstore one day, and since there were only a couple of recipes that I thought that would work for us, borrowing the cookbook instead of purchasing it seemed like a better plan.
One of the recipes that looked tasty, yet simple (my two favorite qualities in a recipe) was Ground Beef Wellington. Since this is Ground Beef Wellington, I'm curious to know what Beef Wellington is usually made with. If I had to guess, I'd say beef tenderloin, but I'm too lazy to research it right now.
A quick search did not reveal his recipe, so you may have to request the cookbook from your own library. It was simple...but I still forgot to add the frozen peas. I don't like peas, but I got some for this recipe and figured I could pick them out...and then I didn't remember them anyway...I didn't miss them though.
Here's what it looked like as it went into the oven.
And here it is after I pulled it out of the oven.
I guess I didn't seal the bottom seam well enough, because some juices leaked out - not a lot, but it was noticable. The meat inside held it's shape very well - I expected it to crumble as I sliced it open, but the slices held together nicely.
It was really good - just delicious. The girls...if I recall correctly, E1 liked it...E3 as well...but I think E2 tried to dissect it (she does that with a lot of things though). Rob enjoyed it, but feels it would be even better with gravy .
He thinks that about a lot of dishes though.
