4 Amazing recipes to pair with our oven-ready Beef Wellington
1. Gravy – and absolute must-have
- 2 onions
- 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 1 heaped teaspoon blackcurrant jam
- 100ml Maderia wine
- 1 heaped teaspoon English mustard
- 2 heaped teaspoons plain flour, plus extra for dusting
- 600ml beef stock
Start off by peeling and roughly chopping the onions, put them in a pan and fry them along with the thyme leaves, stirring occasionally. Then, add the jam and stir and simmer until a shiny, dark colour. Next, add the Maderia wine, flame with a match and cook away. Finally, stir in the mustard and flour, gradually followed by the stock.
And just like that, you’re on your way to turning your dinner party into a festival of flavours!
2. The perfect creamy mash
If there’s one thing, we Maltese are proud of, it’s our potatoes. We practically have potato blood in our veins, right? Read on for all the ingredients and instructions for the tastiest creamy mash below.
Ingredients for creamy mash potatoes:
- 1kg potatoes,
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup hot milk
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 6-8 cloves fresh garlic finely chopped
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley to garnish
Firstly, peel and cut the potatoes into quarters then boil until fork tender. Next, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a small pan over medium-high heat, sauté garlic until fragrant for about 1 minute then set aside and keep warm. Add the remaining butter, cooked garlic, hot milk, and sour cream to the potatoes, and mash everything together until smooth. Finally, add some parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper.

3. Simple yet flavourful asparagus
Next up is everyone’s least-favourite food group: green vegetables. But we’re here to tell you how you can make asparagus taste tender and smoky with two simple ingredients.

First off, start by brushing some sherry vinegar glaze all over the trimmed asparagus and grill them for no longer than 2 minutes on each side. Then, add some chopped pecans to add more flavour and texture to every bite.
That’s all – simple, easy, and efficient, yet delicious.
