Beef Wellington – simply the best pie ever?

I’m going to interrupt this parade of cakes to show you the glorious Beef Wellington made by Petit Man for our Christmas dinner in 2013.

Beef Wellington 2013His first time making this and and would you just look at what he produced – is that not a thing of beauty?

Beef Wellington Cut 2013Unfortunately due to my poor photography skills, and the fact the mushroomy goodness has covered part of the beef in this picture, you can’t see the perfect pink that it actually was.

Served with roasted vegetables, some creamy mash and a to-die-for gravy that involved a lot of red wine, beef stock and reduction, this was one of the best Christmas dinners ever.

Of course, the fact that I didn’t have to cook it just made every mouthful all the more heavenly. 😉
