If you’ve ever had beef wellington, you know that it is one of the more delicious dishes that uses all the “common” ingredients of a typical kitchen.  Jamie Oliver’s Beef Wellington goes above and beyond.  Whenever I make it, everyone who eats it can’t get enough.  Try it and you won’t be disappointed.  :)
Ground Beef Wellington (by Jamie Oliver, Food Revolution pg. 156)
Ingredients:
1 medium onion
1 carrot
1 celery stalk
1 potato
2 cloves of garlic
2 portobello mushrooms
olive oil
4 sprigs of fresh rosemary (modified: I only use 2)
a big handful of frozen peas
1 large egg
1 pound ground beef
sea salt and pepper
all-purpose flour
2 sheets puff pastry (Modified: I only use 1)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. 
Peel/chop onion, carrot, celery, and potato into 1/4-inch dices
finely grate garlic
Clean and roughly chop mushrooms, about the same size of other veggies
Put all veggies into large frying pan on medium low heat with 2 lugs of olive oil
Pick rosemary leaves, finely chop, and add to pan.
Fry and stir for 8 mins, until veggies are lightly colored
Add frozen peas and cook for another minute
Put vegetable mixture into a large bowl to cool completely (Tip: I usually put this bowl into the fridge to speed it up a bit)
Crack the egg into a cup and beat it up
Add ground beef to the veggie mixture with a good pinch of salt and pepper and half the beaten egg
Using your hands, scrunch and mix well.
Assembling:
Lightly dust a clean work surface
Roll out the pastry into a 12x16 rectangle, don’t overwork the dough
Place ground beef mixture along the edge, lengthwise
Mold into an even, long sausage shape
Brush edges of pastry with a little beaten egg
Roll the ground beef up in the pastry until you have a Christmas cracker
Squeeze ends together and brush the remaining egg all over the Wellington
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour
Serve:
Slice it up
Serve with Cherry Tomato, Caper, and Balsamic Sauce
Enjoy!!  :D
