Looking to surprise your significant other or friends and family with a fancy feast, but don’t know what to make? Me too. One dish I see at pricey restaurants is Beef Wellington. A seared tenderloin, wrapped in puff pastry and stuffed with pate. I’ve decided to attempt a low-carb version.
The one thing about this recipe is that it’s a little costly depending on what meat you get. I bought 2 tenderloin steaks (also known as filet mignon), which was around 20 dollars. It’s worth buying a part of the loin because it will be tender, juicy, and easy to cut through. Make sure it’s fresh and bright red.
As for the pate, if you don’t know what it is, it is basically a very thin beef or chicken liver paste. It has the consistency of cream cheese, making it easy to spread. If you’re worried about eating liver, I once was too…but it tastes sort of like tuna! There are many kinds out there, but I used basic liver pate.
Yields 4 servings of Keto Beef Wellington.
- 2 (113g-each) tenderloin steaks, halved
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- ½ cup almond flour
- 4 tablespoons liver pate
1. Season your steaks with salt and pepper.
2. Melt your butter on medium-high heat.
3. Once your butter is melted and bubbling, place your meat gently on the pan. It should start to sizzle and sear your steak.
4. Turn the steaks every 2-3 minutes, making sure you’ve seared each side before taking them off the heat and letting them cool completely. This is a vital step!
5. As you let the steaks cool, heat up your mozzarella cheese in the microwave – roughly 1 minute.
6. Quickly stir in your almond flour. It will form a dough as you stir.
7. While it’s still hot, place your dough on a piece of parchment paper.
8. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and use a rolling pin to make the dough flat.
9. Place a tablespoon of pate onto the dough, in a spot big enough for one piece of meat.
10. Cut out the dough so you are able to form a ball around the meat, with the pate inside.
11. Continue with the rest of the dough & meat.
12. Bake at 400°F until the pastry is a golden brown color, roughly 20-30 minutes.
