    My first encounter with Beef Wellington was a little rough, I won’t lie. But I also know that as my understanding of how it works has improved, so has my ability to prepare it.

    If you aren’t too sure how to make beef wellington, here are a few tips to remember:

    • Make sure to dab dry your pieces of beef tenderloin before you start.

    • Sear all sides of your beef to help keep the shape and juices.

    • Cut your prosciutto just big enough to be able to cover your piece of beef.

    • Cut your puff pastry into 12 equal squares to ensure you have enough to use.

    • Baste with a beaten egg so you get a nice golden color when it’s baked.

    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.
