My wife and I really enjoyed this. I had to tinker with the recipe a bit based on what was on hand, but it worked out great. I used fennel seeds, but didn't have any fennel, so I substituted with celery. Turned out fine, but I'm interested to try it with the fennel now.
This was a huge hit! My husband's family had their own version of Iron Chef and fennel was one of the ingredients we had to use. I made this recipe and it was voted #1... Will definitely make it again. Thank you.
Delicious. I used puff pastry since that was what I had. I skipped the fresh fennel since I didn't have any, but look forward to trying that next time. 30 minutes was plenty of time. Overcooking it will make it hard, so be careful.
Delicious. The fennel gave the dish a wonderfully subtle flavor. I brushed the loafs with egg yolk and actually baked this in a convection toaster oven on a broiler rack and pan. I needed a little longer cooking time than the recipe called for, but an instant read thermometer helped determine when it was done. The loaves had beautiful golden brown crusts and the slices made a nice presentation on the plate. We enjoyed them the second day by reheating a loaf in the toaster oven. This is a keeper.
This recipe was excellent! My hubby is skeptical to new recipes, and he loved it! I didn't have fennel, so I cut it out. I also left out the bread crumbs. I just added a little more fennel seeds to the recipe to make up for the lack of fennel (just a dash), and it truly came out absolutely delicious! I will definitely make it again and add it to my personal recipe collection!
This was good but it came up short of great. I really enjoy real beef wellington and I was hoping this would come close. It did not come close. This is a meat ball inside pastry. I'll save my pennies and have a real beef wellington next time.
My husband loved this! I didn't have fennel and so sauteed chopped celery along with the onion. I'm not sure if I misjudged the amount of beef I was using, but the crescent rolls weren't big enough to hold all of the meat mixture. But no problem - I made a few "meatballs" for my 3-year-old to dip in ketchup by putting the extra meat in a muffin pan to cook along with the beef wellington (and he ate it!). A hit all around.
