90 mins (prep 60, cooking 30)
15 ingredients
16 servings
This recipe is from week 10 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Antarctica is my 10th stop (yes I know Antarctica is technically not a country, but I do love a challenge). This beef Wellington in served every Christmas at McMurdo Station, Antarctica's largest community. It is usually accompanied by lobster tail and at least two different kinds of mashed potato. Recipe courtesy South Pole Chef James Brown and Former South Pole Chef "Cookie" Jon Emanuel.
