Leftover Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce

  • Food: Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce
  • Ingredients: leftover beef wellington, red wine, shallots, beef stock, butter
  • total time: 10 min

Jill and I got sophisticated this week in honor of the Oscars and made the most delicious meal in the history of our blog: Beef Wellington! That’s right, it’s so fancy I had to capitalize it. For leftovers, I knew I needed to kick it up a notch in order to maintain this snazzy streak we are on. Ergo, I decided to try making a reduction sauce.

Reduction sauces are basically really delicious gravy. My dad always makes them with steak, and he is an amazing cook, so I knew if I was successful I would have something to be proud of. My dad likes to joke about how I don’t like gravy unless you call it a “reduction sauce.” I also don’t like meat loaf unless you call it “meat balls,” or hamburger unless you call it “ground beef,” or yard work unless you call it… nope, there is nothing you can call yard work that will make me like it. Sorry, Dad.

Spoiler alert: The sauce was delicious.

Oscars Special: Beef Wellington

  • Food: Beef Wellington
  • Ingredients: 4 cuts of beef, shallots, mushrooms, crepes, puff pastry, salt, and pepper
  • Prep time: 30 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour (30 minutes per part)

I promise we did not steal a picture from Wikepedia, this is OUR food!

Just in case you are unaware, this Sunday was the most important day of the year – OSCARS SUNDAY.  This Sunday beats all others.  Thats right, I claim that it is better than Super Bowl Sunday, Easter Sunday, and that rare time when your birthday falls on a Sunday – Sunday. This occasion transcends sports, religion, and birthdays – its all about the movies.

Just in case you were wondering…this is my favorite acceptance speech of all time 🙂

That would be me, except my voice would probably crack more and I would definitely be jumping the entire time!
