Beef Wellington - a special way to your loved one’s heart
James Whelan Butchers reintroducing their signature Beef Wellington just in time for Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day just one month away, couples everywhere are wondering how best to celebrate this special day. For some, restaurants may be out of the question or too restrictive, and for others even the thought of cooking an elaborate meal from scratch at home is exhausting.
James Whelan Butchers can solve this problem with a simple solution. At Christmas, this award-winning artisan butcher introduced a handmade Beef Wellington as an alternative to the seasonal Turkey and Ham on Christmas Day. Exclusively introduced for Christmas, it proved so popular with customers that the team are reintroducing this signature dish, especially for Valentine’s Day.
This limited edition Beef Wellington is hand prepared and comes oven-ready, needing the minimum of preparation time. Ideal for people who are time-poor, or who are culinary challenged, but who would like to create a wonderful restaurant-quality meal for their loved one in the comfort of their own home to celebrate their love on this special day.
The dish serves two people generously, made with prime-aged Irish beef fillet, wrapped in a mushroom duxelles, buttery puff pastry with fresh herbs and sea salt. The cooking instructions couldn’t be simpler - just pop it into a preheated oven at 200° C, for 25-35 minutes to achieve medium/rare - and rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
All that is left to do is to set the scene with some candles, soft chilling music and a table set for two.
Like all of the Dine at Home dishes, this signature dish is honest, simple, handmade from scratch using the freshest of ingredients, where you can taste the flavour and goodness that has gone into every single bite.
Available to order in store in any of the 12 James Whelan Butcher shops across the country. For more details on shop locations visit www.jameswhelanbutchers.com.
