Beef Wellington Day

According to the King of the kitchen, Gordon Ramsay, it’s National Beef Wellington Day! Who knew! If we had known, we would have prepared more but alas we didn’t, so we have a picture from our glorious trip to Vegas from a few years back.

After spending hours watching Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef, and any other Gordon show, we realized we needed to try his Beef Wellington. Well not his, cause we knew he wouldn’t be cooking for us personally, but you get the idea.

We booked our table at Gordon Ramsay Steak, at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and from the moment we got there, we knew it was love at first sight. We were seated on the balcony looking at an abstract art light installation of Gordon Ramsay’s hands while he makes his signature Wellington.

Fun right? Here’s our menus!

A traditional and delicious Pimm’s Cup, we could have sucked those bad boys back, but alas we are ladies, and not big drinkers so one drink was enough. But a delicious drink. After we ordered our drinks, the meat cart came to our table.

Terrible photo, but that right there is a tray full of meat. These are all the different cuts of meat they offer. Pretty, but that wasn’t what we came for, we came for that sexy Beef Wellington.

So we ordered two Beef Wellingtons and two of Gordon’s classic Caesar Salads.

GR Steak

Small, yet totally satisfying. And we both tried the Scotch Eggs, not bad either. Not long after finishing the salad, our beautiful, mouth watering Beef Wellington was brought out to us.

BEEFCan you hear that? That’s the sounds of angels singing, the heavens opening and the light shining down upon this beautiful plate. We have never tasted something so beautiful. Just thinking and looking at it has our mouths watering. The puff pastry was flaky, buttery, and gold brown, and the inside was so tender and moist. The steak was the most beautiful color of red, it was perfect.

GONE

Unfortunately, we wanted to save room for sticky toffee pudding, so we took our leftovers to go. And what’s even sadder, is we left them in the hotel room the day we left!

Since we tried Beef Wellington, we have been itching to make it, and we plan to, SOON, so stay tuned!

      1. The recipe we got from Popsugar website, and then my sister-in-law consulted some Ramsay video as well. As far as restaurants go Las Vegas would be the closest for us, but in my dreams I would go to London 🙂
