Beef Wellington dinner w/ Pictures

made beef wellington last night, my first attempt and i was pretty pleased with the results... i must say though, it was certainly a challenge to keep that sucker from being a water logged mess... anyhow, here is how it turned out, i was going for a brittish isles/irish/english typed theme.
Appetizer - Barley Stuffed Mushrooms w/ Wild Rice



Soup Course - Potato & Leek Soup



Meat course - Beef Wellington



Beer - Killian's Irish Red



Dessert Course - Bailey's Chocolate Moose Torte



One of my favorite dessert's to make... quick and easy and always goes over well. Some thick mint chocolate moose, a cookie crust (made from stelladorro vanilla fingers) and a spoon of hot mint chocolate on the side.

thanks....

Mushrooms came out great, although i love anything with barley involved so im a bit biased ... but yeah they were pretty good. I was happy with the way everything came out, After reading alot of recipies i was scared my wellington would be a sloppy gooey mess, but it worked out well.

if you haven't tried it i would definetly recommend giving it a whirl, especially if you are a meat and potatoes guy like myself. It has become an instant favorite for me.

All I can say is; WOW! You have raised the bar a bit. Now I'm just going to have to make Beef Wellington as one of my "Challenge" dinners.

Your wellington is cooked perfectly! I always overcook mine waiting for the pastry to brown. I haven't had potato soup in a long time, I'll have put it on the list to make next week.

Wow, did you do this for a special occasion? I don't think I've ever fixed a 4 course meal like that before, usually I just do a salad, entree and vegetable. The beef looks perfectly cooked to me. I'll have to give this a try at some time.
