I’m so spoiled, and you are about to find out why!!! This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you a “Paleo Beef Wellington”. The other day Rachel and I had been watching one of our favorite shows; “Hell’s Kitchen” with Chef Gordon Ramsay…. Every time they show a Beef Wellington being sliced open to show that nice medium rare beef engulfed in a crust, I’m wondering “Can me make that, but Paleo??” I figured it was simple with a little help from Julian Bakery! Rachel kindly asked me what I wanted to eat for my “Father’s Day Dinner” the other day, and I blurted out “Paleo Beef Wellington!” Then I watched her cringe. But she was confident, and went ahead with sourcing out some great filet mignon from the local Farmer’s Market, along with mushrooms, and other organic ingredients. But no crazy effort was needed for the crust! Thanks to the wonderful Paleo Pizza Crust Mix, the crust was a no-brainer. We’ve enjoyed pizzas, a calzone, and now a “Paleo Beef Wellington” can be added to the list! Rachel found a recipe online at www.ancestralchef.com and ran with it… A few changes to the recipe, as well as a simple crust swap and she was on her way to creating an amazing dinner! One that I will never forget!
Ingredients: For the Duxelles:
- 6 large button mushrooms
- 1 medium sized shallot
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil
- 4 4oz grass-fed Filet Mignons
- 1 bag Paleo Pizza Crust Mix
- 12 thin slices of prosciutto
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons Paleo Butter
- 1 Egg, in its own small bowl, whisked for egg washing
- Preheat oven to 400F (205C).
- Make the duxelles by blending the mushrooms, onions, garlic powder, salt and olive oil together until pureed in a food processor or Vitamix style blender.
- Heat the duxelles mixture in a pan for 10 minutes on medium heat.
- Place a large piece of cling-film onto the counter and place the pieces of prosciutto side-by-side (overlapping slightly) to form a rectangular layer.
- Spread the duxelles over the prosciutto layer.
- Sprinkle the salt over the filet mignon and pan sear the filet mignon in the Paleo Butter.
- Spread the mustard on the seared filet mignon and place in the middle of the prosciutto and duxelles layer.
- Use the cling-film to wrap the prosciutto around each filet mignon. Then wrap the cling-film around the package to secure it tightly together. Place in fridge for 15 minutes.
- To make crust, empty Paleo Pizza Crust Mix in a bowl along with ½ cup of water and a pinch of salt. Use your hands to knead the dough, using a little coconut or almond flour to assist with the kneading process.
- Roll the dough out to approximately 1/8th inch thick on a piece of parchment paper sprinkled with coconut or almond flour, to form a piece about 12” by 24”. Prick dough all over with a fork, then cut it into 4 equal sized pieces.
- Remove the cling-film from the refrigerated prosciutto-wrapped filet mignons and place each one in the center of each of the four dough pieces.
- Carefully wrap each filet mignon with the dough. Use your hands to push together the dough on the other two ends and to fill up any cracks and gaps. Smooth the dough out gently.
- Wash the dough with the egg wash (from the whisked egg).
- Carefully cut 2 slits on the top of the dough to allow air to escape.
- Carefully transfer the Beef Wellington onto a greased baking tray and bake for 24 minutes (it should be pink when you cut into it).
- To serve, carefully cut the Beef Wellington in half.
