Japanese Wagyu Beef Wellington Recipe with Truffle Oil & Bacon
It’s dinner time again for my little 5-year-old BFF foodie. What do I have in the fridge? Well, I have some Japanese Wagyu Beef, Grade A4 no less from Chef Greg. Now, how can I get creative with that for my little buddy? I know, how about creating a Japanese Wagyu Beef Wellington Recipe with Truffle Oil & Bacon? Yeah, that works, that works really well because the little man had already asked me to make him something with his favourite Wagyu. Move over Chef Gordon Ramsay, because you have competition, my friend.
This was beef melt-in-the-mouth butter encased in some beautiful crispy pastry, with salty crispy bacon, and some super savoury truffle. How can you not want more and more of this? It was a stunner. This is my Japanese Wagyu Beef Wellington Recipe with Truffle Oil & Bacon. I’ll definitely be doing this again, that is for absolutely certain.
It won’t be the usual BBQ meats reverse sear to get those burnt ends this time, but it surely will be Pink2Pink Perfection. I might even serve it up with some Duck Fat Fries. That would be decadence on a plate that would sit perfectly well on any table in a restaurant Singapore.
Have a look at that bad boy. A perfect medium-rare and Pink2Pink Perfection for the wee man.
This is one hell of a Beef Wellington, with a little bacon in there for saltiness, some major savoury kick from the truffle oil, and just the perfect Japanese Wagyu Beef Grade A4 rib steak. Holy Cow, literally!!!
And here is Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Beef Wellington. Move over big boy, I think ours is better. Make this yourself and you be the judge of it. I can actually say this with confidence too as we have eaten Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Beef Wellington at Bread Street Kitchen at Marina Bay Sands The Shoppes.
Now to the Japanese Wagyu Beef Wellington Recipe
Perfectly cooked puff pastry, crispy on the outside and ever so gooey in the middle. This is one heavenly Beef Wellington.
Are you ready for the recipe folks, here comes the Japanese Wagyu Beef Wellington Recipe with Truffle Oil & Bacon.
You will need;
- 200g Japanese Wagyu Beef Rib Steak, Grade A4
- 1 strip of streaky bacon
- 1 sheet of flaky pastry
- 1 egg
- Truffle oil; and
- Sea salt & cracked black pepper
Follow these steps;
- Spray the steak with the truffle oil on both sides
- Give a good sprinkle of sea salt & cracked Kampot black pepper
- Heat up a frying pan and pop in the steak and char it on both sides – set aside to rest a little
- Fry off the bacon until crispy
- Put some baking paper on an oven tray, rub with a little oil and put down the sheet of flaky pastry
- Pop the steak in the middle, and slap the bacon on the top
- Neatly fold over the pastry gently sealing it where the joins are, and gently stab with a fork to let the steam escape when cooking
- Beat the egg and use that as an egg wash to brush over the pastry – this will give the golden brown colour when it bakes
- Pop that in an oven at 200 degrees and watch carefully for it to crisp and brown – which should be about 5-10 minutes
- And you are done
- If you want to test the steak doneness you can stick in a small sharp knife and touch the top of your lip – if you feel warm all down the knife with no cold bits you are in business
Move over Chef Gordon Ramsay. So says Jude Jude!!!
Bring it on Ramsay. Let’s have a head-to-head. Competition thrown down, haha.
Here is a link to our blog about other ways to cook the perfect Japanese Wagyu Beef Steak
I served this on a wooden platter, and when I sliced this open we were exposed to a perfectly cooked Pink2Pink Perfection medium-rare Japanese Wagyu Beef steak. It was so very juicy and flavoursome with the truffle oil and bacon adding to the beefy kick. Then add that it is wrapped in that perfectly crispy flaky pastry, that was all nice and gooey inside. You could have cut this with a spoon it was so tender.
