JACK WORTHINGTON (a.k.a vegan 'beef' Wellington)

This delicious vegan "beef" wellington will turn heads on the dinner table. Even the meat eaters will ask for a piece and then the recipe. I call this dish "Jack Worthington", because I made the fillet using "jackfruit". Enjoy the recipe, and tag me on Instagram if you make it, so I can thank you properly.
