Keto Beef Wellington
Do you want to prepare an elegant English dish for your date night but too afraid you might mess up your diet?
No need to worry because here’s a quick and easy way to cook Wellington beef, a classic English meal with a couple of modifications to suit your American tastebuds.
In order to provide energy for your body while working on your keto diet, protein is a definite must have. And there’s no better way to stuff some protein in your meal than a juicy beef steak.
Meat is the main ingredient in this dish, as it is the most ideal protein source. The great thing about meat is that it quenches your cravings for little snacks in between meals because it is quite heavy on the stomach.
The usual way to prepare this is baking the beef in puff pastry and adding some mushrooms (or even a mushroom platter!) to complete the taste.
Of course, to make it keto-friendly, we will only use keto friendly ingredients so you can both enjoy a sumptuous meal all while losing those extra fats.
The pastry will be made out of dough from different kinds of cheese since they have a myriad of vitamins, healthy fats, and other essential elements that are good for your beauty and health.
This dough will be mixed in with some almond flour instead of regular flour to minimize the carbohydrates. Finish the dish will tasty seasonings and herbs and voila! The perfect meal for a keto diet dinner date!

While preheating the oven at 425 F, season the halved meat with pepper and salt.
Sear in hot olive oil for about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Saute the thyme and chopped mushrooms in the same pan over medium heat. Keep mixing until they soften. Set aside.
Making the dough: Mix all of the dough ingredients in a bowl then let them melt in the microwave for a minute. Take out then stir and reheat for one more minute.
Roll this dough until flat before cutting it in half.
Making the fillings: On a flat chopping board, lay a prosciutto slice, add the cooked mushrooms on top, then layer with the cooked meat. Roll the slice over.
Afterwards, spread the liver pate all over, then place the meat on top. Wrap all the edges securely. Make two of these burgers with the remaining ingredients.
Place the burgers in the preheated oven and wait for about 15 to 20 minutes to cook.
Serve in a plate with your favorite greens.
