Beef Wellington with Roasted Red Potatoes

IMG_3800

jillpickle:  I decided to make The Ultimate Beef Wellington recipe from Tyler Florence for New Years Day.  It was a fun recipe to try.  Next time I would try to remove more of the moisture from the duxelles before spreading it on the pastry.  For me, some of the moisture caused a little bit of a soggy bottom.  Other than that, it was a great recipe.  I liked the potato recipe too.

Asparagus and Mushroom Tart Variation

JillPickle:  Katie found this recipe which I have made a few times.  It’s fast, elegant and tasty!  The puff pastry makes it look and taste like a gourmet dish.  For the variation, I doubled the amount of sauce since I had leftover ricotta to use up.  I topped the pastry with tiny yellow tomatoes, prosciutto, roasted garlic and kalamata olives and fresh mozzarella cheese.  It was great!

Here’s the variation.
