I took the idea of wrapping beef in pastry from the traditional beef Wellington to make a simpler dish with the kick of fennel seeds and cayenne. I serve these with tomato sauce.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, fennel, and garlic. Cook and stir until the fennel is tender, and the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the fennel seed and red pepper flakes, and cook for 1 minute more. Meanwhile, beat the egg in a bowl, then mix in the ground beef, bread crumbs, parsley, and salt. Add the cooked vegetable mixture, and stir until combined.
  3. Separate the crescent roll dough into two squares. Divide the meat mixture among the crescent roll squares, then seal the dough around the meat. Place seam-side-down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pastry has turned golden-brown, and the center of the pastries registers 160 degrees F (71 degrees C) on a kitchen thermometer, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve.

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.
