Beef Wellington, a very luxurious dish made of beef tenderloin that wrapped in puff pastry, in between the meat and the pastry there’s a layer of foie gras or goose liver, duxelle or sauteed chopped mushrooms ragout and thinly sliced of prosciutto.

Beef Wellington Anatomy; Puff Pastry, Spinach Leaves, Prosciutto, Mushrooms Duxelle, Foie Gras & Dry Aged Beef Tenderloin

Beef Wellington is DAMN DELICIOUS, no question about it; the puff pastry that wrapping the beef tenderloin is crispy, light and buttery with eye catching golden brown color. When you cut open through out the beef wellington parcel, all the goodness will revealed; the beef filet, mushrooms duxelles, and prosciutto. If you lucky enough the buttery foie gras is not completely melted and you can dig and taste each of the elements.

Beouf en Croute a.k.a Beef Wellington

Leah Hyslop, writing in The Telegraph, observes that by the time Wellington became famous, meat baked in pastry was a well-established part of English cuisine, and that the dish’s similarity to the French filet de bœuf en croûte (fillet of beef in pastry) might imply that “Beef Wellington” was a “timely patriotic rebranding of a trendy continental dish”.However, she cautions, there are no 19th century recipes for the dish.

Here Few Tips, Tricks and Element For Ultimately Perfect Beef Wellington:

dry aged beef tenderloin wellington filet mignon puff pastry mushrooms

A. The Beef  Tenderloin

Beef tenderloin is the highlight of the beef welington or boeuf en Croute. Beef tenderloin is must be tender and delicious, no matter what kind of cattle breed you use for the recipe. Tenderloin is not used for any movement or even support the weight by the catte itself, hence the marbling fat ratio within the musscle in the beef tenderloin is low, even in A5 Kobe, Matsusaka or the  best US Black Angus with 12 BMS. Tenderloin is also rather bland compare to the other beef cut, so it’s ery crucial to improved the flavour with seasoning or consentrated the beef flavour with DRY AGING BEEF TENDERLOIN.

Recipe Beef Wellington Puff Pastry Tenderloin Stuffed Mushrooms Foie Gras Spinach Prosciutto Dry Aged Beef Filet en croute boeuf

I’m using 14 days dry aged whole beef tenderloin that i hung to dry undisturbed in my fridge.  My previously Dry Aging Beef Tenderloin in The Home Refrigerator recipe takes 14 days to change a relatively cheap local beef tenderloin into a prime steak house quality tenderloin steak taste a like. Commercially dry beef aging is the whole cut of beef placed in a controlling enviroment in 1– 4°C (33 – 39°F) temperature, and 80–85% relative humidity and some air velocity. The principal of this home refrigerator dry aging whole beef tenderloin is to let some moistures evaporated from the meat to  consentrated the flavour without completely drying it off and let the microbial organism and natural enzyms works jut enought to break down the meat collagen and tenderize the beef  without further rotten it.

beef wellington crispy puffpastry beef tenderloin mushrooms prosciutto foie gras Boeuf en croute

Using dry aged beef tenderloin also good for the sake of the moisture in the beef wellington filling because some of the moisture within the beef tenderloin is gone while the dry aging. Fresh beef tenderloin is contain too much moisture which is tend to be leaked out when cooked and steamed the filling, this ain’t good for sure.Too much moisture in the filling of beef wellington made the parcel soggy & wet.

B. The Mushrooms Duxelles

Mushrooms duxelle is a sauteed finely chopped (minced) mixture of mushrooms butter and other ingredients like or  onions, shallots, garlic and herbs. Mushrooms duxelle or sometimes called mushrooms ragout is slowly cooked until completely wilted and most of the moisture evaporated then reduced to a paste (sometimes cream is used, as well). Mushrooms duxelle is a used as stuffings for savoury pastry, chicken or fish.

I’m making 2 kind of mushrooms duxelle; the dark mushrooms duxelle made of a mixture of black chanterele or black trumpet mushrooms (trompette de la mort) and some caps of morel mushrooms; the brownish mushrooms duxelle is made of porcini or penny bun mushrooms (cepes), wild oyster mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms.

C. The Foie Gras.

Beef Wellington traditionally using a liver pate, but how about we using the real pieces of fresh foie gras ? i guess fresh foie gras is be a better option than liver pate.  I’m using  a few ounces of sliced foie gras  that vacuum packed for individual portion. The fresh foie gras sliced thinly and then adeed to cover the upper part of the beef tenderloin to upgrade the beef wellington filling.  Once the Boeuf en Croute parcel baked in the oven,the foie fat slowly renders, basting the beef in its juices so that when you slice into the finished beef wellington to give extra creamy flavour.

D.The Prosciutto

Beef Wellington usually using thinly sliced pork prosciutto, but today i’m using my Homemade Goat Prosciutto Violino di Capra. The goat prosciutto made of very young mutton, so it’s taste mild and sweet without overpowering gamey aromas. The prosciutto gives a nice rich salty flavour into the beef wellington stuffing and the fat on it also rendered once baked and it help to retain the moisture inside the puff pastry parcel.

E. The Puff Pastry

I made my own puff pastry for this beef wellington using this Homemade Puff Pastry. Actually this is my first trial of making puff pastry myself, the result is not that bad and i find it’s not that hard to made. If you will,  there are some excellent frozen puff pastry brands on the market that made your life easier, my favourite puff pastry brand is Edo and actually it’s the most popular puff pastry here in Indonesia.

F. Spinach, The Moisture Barrier for Beef Wellington

Beef wellington is really nice if the natural juices from all the filling and the beef tenderloin retained inside the filling. In the other hand, as the parcel baked too much moisture will steam the beef tenderloin and become another problem. Traditionally, beef tenderloin and the mushrooms duxelle wrapped in crepe pancake before wrapped in puff pastry, but i think it’s a terrible idea because the parcell turned soggy once it absorbed the juices. The other suggest a fillo pastry dough, nope! it’s just as terrible as the crepe because it’s too thin and can’t handle the moisture that leaked out. Using dry aged beef tenderloin is also really good because the concentrated juices that leaked out is not as much as the fresh beef tenderloin because the natural moisture evaporated due the dry aging process.

The sollution of Moisture barrier that good enought to prevent the juices leaking out and also absorbed the excess moisture to prevent the fillling steaming the beef tenderloin: SPINACH LEAVES. Wide whole spinach leaves that already sauteed and patted dry layered overlapping to each other act as a moisture barrier, because it won’t ever become soggy. You can using other wide edible leaves (at least 10 cm diameter) like amaranth leaves for this recipe, so baby spinach or diced spinach leaves is no good for as a moisture barrier for making beef wellington.

Let’s made the beef wellington!!!

blowtorch seared beef tenderloin dry aged filet mignon making beef wellington porcini mushrooms en croute boeuf

Making the beef wellington started with searing the beef tenderloin. First i generously season the 14 days dry aged beef tenderloin with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Then i sear the beef tenderloin with blow torch until all surface  browned & perfectly seared. Even this process is scientifically didn’t significantly seal the moisture as people believe, it’s sure made the beef looks and taste nicer once it cooked later. I’m using the highest flame on my blowtorch to let it searing only the outside of the beef tenderloin and prevent it cook the meat inside.

beef tenderloin brushed mustard yellow making beef wellington boeuf en crouteAccording to the most popular beef wellington recipe by Gordon Ramsay, adding mustard to the beef tenderloin is a pretty good idea. Despite his evil bitch tongue, he is F-word right, adding mustard to beef tenderloin give a nice kick; a little bit of heat and spiciness. So i brushed my beef tenderloin with dijon mustard right after i seared it with blowtorch, make sure you did this when the beef is still warm to let the flavour infused better to the beef tenderloin.

Villa Pusri Danau Ranau menjadi pilihan terbaik karena fasilitasnya cukup memadai, selain itu cukup luas, bersih dan nyaman untuk ditempati.  Udara segar perbukitan dengan suhu yang cukup dingin (16-18 C) membuat anda tidak mebutuhkan pendingin udara, malah  jangan lupa membawa jaket jika ingin berjalan-jalan ketika malam hari karena udaranya ketika malam sangat dingin.

Villa Wisma PT.Pusri cocok untuk keuarga besar karena tidak ada batasan jumlah pengunjung yang menginap. Rate rata-rata adalah sebesar 300-500 rb per malam. Ada beberapa villa lain di sekitar wisma PT Pusri, jadi jangan takut karena banyak pilihan akomodasi hotel dan penginapan yang lebih terjangkau selain villa PT.Pusri.

Boat Cruising The Ranau Lake

Untuk berkeliling danau anda dapat menyewa kapal kecil dan menyusuri danau ranau dengan tarif sewa Ro.100-200 rb untuk perjalanan singkat 2-3 jam. Kami menyebrang ke tempat wisata pemandian air panas  yang terletak di seberang wisma villa Pusri dengan biaya sewa Rp.150 rb.   Aku lebih memilih duduk di atas atap kapal selama perjalanan menggunakan kapal karena mendapatkan pemandangan dan semilir angin yang lebih kencang dibanding di dalam kabin kapal.

Tepat di tengah danau terdapat pulau yang bernama Pulau Marisa Pulau kecil di tengah Danau Ranau yang tidak berpenghuni ini berukuran sekitar 1/2 hektar ini ditumbuhi tanaman kelapa.

Ranau Lake Hotspring

Danau Ranau terkenal dengan pemandian air panas hasil fenomena geotermal pada Gunung Seminung yang membuat air permukaan bertemu dengan bebatuan panas dibawahnya. Mineral belerang yang terlarut di dalam air pemandian Danau Ranau membuatnya ampuh mengatasi masalah kulit pengunjung yang berendam didalamnya.

Steaming Hot Ranau Lake Hotspring

Suhu pemandian air panas Danau Ranau berkisar andara 30-40C, semakin dekat dengan sumbernya maka akan semakin panas. Di tepi kolam terdapat tunel yang menghubungkan air kolam dengan  air danau. Aku suka duduk berendam disitu karena ada sensasi tersendiri saat air panas kolam dan air dingin bergantian menentuh badan. dari danau

Fasilitas di tempat pemandian air panas Danau ranau memang seadanya dan tidak terlalu terawat. Ruang berganti pakaian dan toilet tersedia dengan kebersihan yang kurang memadai, sehingga kami hanya mengeringkan badan dan mengganti pakaian tanpa mandi di pemandian ini. Kami memilih mandi  ketika kembali ke Villa Wisma PT.Pusri. Satu hal yang kurang mengenakkan adalah penarikan retribusi liar oleh oknum preman setempat, kami menolak membayar karena memang tidak ada tiket resmi terbitan Pemerintah untuk memasuki area pemandian ini. Semoga dikemudian hari pungutan liar seperti ini tidak ada lagi.

Capturing The Surrounding

Saat anda berwisata ke Danau Ranau jangan lupa mempelajari kearifan masyarakat lokal, bagaimana nelayan setempat menangkap ikan dan aktivitas transportasi, perikanan serta pariwisata yang semuanya terjadi karena anugerah Danau Ranau. Tepian Danau Ranau dipenuhi bebatuan kerikil kecil dengan air yang bening, anda dapat bermain-main air dan mengumpuklan kulit kerang disitu. Jangan lupa menggunakan alas kaki karena terkadang terdapat bebatuan atau pecahan kulit kerang yang cukup tajam dan dapat melukai kulit.

Pariwisata Danau Ranau masih banyak membutuhkan pembinaan, salah satunya adalah faktor transportasi yang terlalu jauh untuk dikunjungi dengan jalur darat karena bandara SMB II sebagai bandara terdekat berjarak 9 jam. Fasilitas umum seperti ATM yang belum memadai di Kota Banding Agung turut menjadi masalah tersendiri, terlepas dari kekurangan tersebut, kemurnian Danau Ranau dari industri pariwisata massal menjadi daya tari tersendiri untuk mengunjunginya. Ayo jalan-jalan ke Danau Ranau!!!

lobster rendang grilled spinny lobster spicy curry barbeque sauce recipeBefore we takling about rendang, i should acknowledge you that In Minangkabau culinary tradition, there are stages of Rendang spice doness. Rendang doness category is according to the liquid content in cooked coconut milk, ranges from the soupy most wet to the most dry: Gulai Kalio Rendang. The  spices ingredients of gulai, kalio and rendang is almost identical with the exceptions that gulai usually uses less red chilli pepper and got more turmeric, while rendang uses more varieties of  spices.

rendang lobster udang pedas padang kari lobster bakarWhen you making rendang and you stop to cooked it right when the meat is done and the coconut milk has reached its boiling point, you have gulai. If the process continues well until the coconut milk is partly evaporated with brownish colored meats, then you have kalio. When the process continued hours more until the liquid completely evaporated and the color turns to dark brown almost black in color, then you have rendang. According to this notions, the real rendang is those with less liquid contents.

pan fried lobster spicy curry rendang sauce lobster rock prawn spicy chili

Making rendang lobster is kinda tricky; you need to USE THE HIGEST HEAT of your stove to fasten the caramelisation of the rendang curry sauce, USING NON STICKY SHALLOW & WIDE GRILLING PAN also made the evaporation of the liquid even better, using non sticky pan also help prevent the rendang spices sticked in the bottom and burned out because you using very high heat while cooking it. USING THICK COCONUT CREAM instead of thin coconut milk it’s a must if you want to make lobster rendang curry because too much liquid on the coconut milk made it boil instead of “fried” the spices and the spices need more time to caramelized, in the other hand the liquid vapour steam the lobster meat insde and made it tent to be overcooked even more. If you attemp to made prawn rendang, shrimp rendang or other seafood rendang this tips is also applied!

Now, let’s we begin to make LOBSTER RENDANG CURRY!!!

lobster pan fried grilled crayfishFirst  you need to cut the lobster into  two equal pieces and seasoned it with, lime juice, salt and white peppercorn.  Heat up some oli in the shallow & wide grilling pan then sear the meat side down until it slighly chareed in the outside. Hear the nice sizzling sound of it when you sear the lobster meat.

Turn the lobster meat side up and then sear the shell side down for another 1 minutes. You should need a sizzling sound  and you know you’re doing it right!

Keep stirring the spices to let it cooked evenly.

Keep stirred the rendang spices to let it distributed evenly and let the water evaporates even better. You will see the coconut cream made the rendang spices had whitish creamy color

lobster pan grilled crayfish rendang curry grilled spinny lobster crayfish pan searedThe lobster rendang sauce color now slowly turned out darker when the coconut cream renderred into coconut oil and “fried” the spices once it evaporated. This process is the key of success of lobster rendang, when you see the cream rendered into oil, you need to turn the heat into medium unless you burned out the spices. Keep stirring and distributes the rendang sauce into the lobster meat and stop the cooking process once your lobster meat is perfectly cooked. Making lobster rendang is much more quickl only take about 15-20 minutes for medium size lobster (350-500grams) compare to beef rendang that takes 4 hours.
