Beef Wellington

Serving size: 4

Usually I make individual wellingtons but today I opted to make a full one because we have friends over. Same process as the individual but less work and saran wrap. I didn’t take photos of the actual servings as was too busy entertaining. I served with my Roasted Red Peppers and Butter Lettuce Salad as well as roasted asparagus.
