Beef WellingUp

This takes the term “chuck steak” to a whole new level. This is the recipe for that bag of meat that was left in the car for a tad too long.



  • 800g. beef eye fillet that was left in the car
  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 30g. butter
  • 4 sheets puff pastry
  • 250g. pate
  • 1 egg
  1. Melt butter and cook onion until it softens. Add mushrooms and heat on high for 6-7 minutes.
  2. Cut the beef crossways into 100g pieces. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat and cook beef for 2 minutes.
  3. Cut 3 pastry sheets in half to form rectangles. Place slices of the pate along the centre of the rectangles. Add a layer of mushrooms and then a piece of beef. Fold over the pastry and seal. Brush pastry with egg.

Food Safety Tip

For home readers, your car is one of the most likely places where food will perish, especially in summer. Ensure that items such as meat are the last items that you buy, and that you return home immediately. Cool bags are great for giving you a bit of extra time, but won’t last for hours.

For businesses, all potentially hazardous foods must be transported below 5°C. It is your responsibility to monitor food in transit. If you are receiving a delivery ensure it is below 5°C when you receive it.

Monitoring and recording the temperature in your supply chain is critical. The LogTag range of temperature loggers have options, including displays and probes.
