A Classic Beef Wellington Recipe

Serves 5


6 x 100 Blue Waters Beef Fillets
dash of Fini olive oil
100g Mushrooms
1 tub of pate
Salt and Pepper
368g Packet of Frozen Puff Pastry
1 Golden Egg to glaze

Heat the oil in a frying pan, season steaks with salt and pepper, brown the meat seasoned side down, quickly seasoning other side but also add a pinch of ground Cumin. Turning once only to seal in the juices on both sides. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms thickly set aside. Set the fillet if beef in the middle of a sheet of thawed pastry and thinly spread pate on steak, top with mushroom, finally place the other steak on top. Cut out the Pastry corners so you can fold up the pastry around the meat, turning up the ends first and then the sides which should just overlap to cover the meat thoroughly. Brush/Moisten the pastry edges with egg wherever it overlaps so that it sticks together well in cooking. Turn over, set on a baking tray and brush with egg yolk. Bake in a hot oven 220C, 425F until golden brown. Serve with mashed Royal Blue potatoes and gravy and accompany with a delicious Salitage wine
