Beef Wellington - Your tried and true recipe and tips appreciated

cosmogrrl | Dec 15, 201006:53 PM

So this year for the first time in over 20 years, turkey will not be served at Christmas in the family home. The only person who loved it was my Mum, and since she's passed now I can make whatever I want!

A friend of mine who's attended Christmas Dinner for over 15 years has always hounded me to make a Beef Wellington, so I think that this shall be the year he gets his wish!

I'm a savvy cook, and the recipes I've seen don't seem too daunting, just time consuming, and I'm familiar with all of the techniques used, but there may be something that could trip me up. Aside from the dog getting at it. The visiting dog is the size of a small pony and has no trouble reaching any part of the counter! Literally he could stir stuff on the stove, and I'd train him to do it except he'd pick at it too much. :D

I won't get a chance to do a trial run of this dish, so I'd appreciate your favorite recipe and any tips or tricks that you have! Also, how much can I make the day before? And I'll be doing the unthinkable and using packaged puff pastry, so if you have a favorite brand please tell me what it is.

Thanks in advance
