Looking for an alternative to turkey for the main event this Christmas? Look no further, as Asda announces the launch of its new showstopping Extra Special Tomahawk Beef Wellington (£28 per kg), sure to be the star of the show this festive season.
Weighing, on average, a whopping 1.8kg, this truly indulgent hand-crafted Christmas joint has been developed by Asda’s award-winning development chefs and master butchers. The succulent long bone rib of beef wellington has been French trimmed and matured for 21 days to add extra flavour and tenderness.
The incredible cut is paired with a premium truffle and three-cheese melt containing mild and savoury Emmental, sweet and earthy brie, and a rich and flavourful Manchego. In addition to this is a rich beef stock topped with delightful duxelles made using shiitake mushrooms, thyme, parsley and garlic with a dash of Madeira wine. It is then hand-finished with an all-butter lattice puff pastry, finished with puff pastry stars.
The Tomahawk Wellington comes as part of the retailer’s range of alternative festive mains. Highlights include the Extra Special Jewelled Carvery Lamb Shoulder with Festive Fruit Stuffing and Meaty Lamb Jus (£16 per kg), a stunning joint of lamb bejewelled with apricots, clementines and rosemary. The lamb-based stuffing is full of clementines and rosemary, all topped with a slow-roasted bone-marrow-based lamb jus. The range also features the Extra Special Fragrant Picanha Beef Joint with Garlic & Herb Butter (£28 per kg), an impressive cut taken from the top of the rump and matured for 21 days.
Shoppers can pick up Asda’s Extra Special Tomahawk Wellington alongside other festive mains from Tuesday 20th December in store and online nationwide.
