Mini Beef Wellington is one of the best party appetizers out there! Mini pieces of beef tenderloin seasoned with mushrooms, thyme, Dijon and prosciutto, all tucked into puff pastry.
My first encounter with Beef Wellington was a little rough, I won’t lie. But I also know that as my understand of how it works has improved, so has my ability to prepare it. Mini Beef Wellington is an even easier version because you aren’t fiddling around with a large piece of meat. Make sure to read up on the “whys” of wellington before you get started.
These are one of the best party appetizers because you can make everything ahead of time, right down to bundling them up, then just pop them in the oven when you are ready. Mini Beef Wellington even freezes well!
Did you know know there are two types of puff pastry? Vegetable shortening and butter based. Some claim vegetable shortening based has a funny after taste, so make sure you pick up the one that appeals to you most. Personally, it depends on what I’m using it for. Something like Mini Beef Wellington deserves a good, buttery crust.
