    Beef Wellington - Prepping the Beef Tenderloin

    4-10 oz. USDA Choice Beef Tenderloins



    I tied these with twine so they would remain uniform. Salt and pepper thoroughly and sear in 1 Tbsp butter.





    After both sides are seared, place on plate and put in fridge.

    Beef Wellington Prep - Assembling The Beef Wellington

    I purchased 1 lb. of puff pastry for this.

    Roll out one half of the puff pastry and cut in half.

    Set 1 beef tenderloin on each half

    Top with 2 Tbsp. mushroom duxelle and three generous slices of foie gras.

    Brush the edges of the pastry with egg wash.

    Repeat with the other beef tenderloins.



    Pull up the corners to make a pouch, sealing the edges.



    Brush the pouches with more egg wash.

    Bake @ 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
