Martian_Astronomer: I tried to make a poor man's version of Beef Wellington


Just get a packet of those thin sliced roast beef slices from the lunch meat section and roll it up in some Pillsbury croissants spread with some liverwurst paste/braunschweiger and baked . Then make up a packet of those Au Jus powders and serve on the side in grandma's gravy boat you never use.

I tried to make a poor man's version of Beef Wellington for Valentine's day, once. Couldn't find a whole beef tenderloin, so I substituted some sort of lean beef roast that I massacred with a meat mallet until it was nice and tender. That was actually fine, but the bigger problem was that I'm ethically and stylistically opposed to foie gras, so I tried to substitute an olive tapenade for similar texture, and that was way too salty.

Also it takes like three hours to make start to finish, and telling your significant other to wait for that long on Valentine's day after you're already late because you kept trying to find a beef tenderloin basically means that you won't finish off the evening a happy non-resentful bedroom denouement.

I'm not opposed to trying again if I have the time to actually do logistics ahead of time and get a better foie gras substitute.

If offered Beef Wellington, I'd eat it, it's probably delicious. But I'll never make it. What a pain in the ass.

Honestly, the best things wrapped in puff pastry are either cheesy or sweet.

Just regular steak is farking awesome, make that and save yourself a lot of time.
