This is my version of the classic Beef Wellington.
I used sirloin steak, which I cooked in a pan until it was cooked medium rare. You can of course cook the steak how you prefer it. Ensure it is cooked to a point before you would call it perfect, as it will cook more in the oven.
I then cut the steak into portions, about two inches square.
The steak was then spread with a mixture of chopped mushrooms and mustard. I used French whole grain mustard.
Using some puff pastry (and I will admit I do buy ready made puff pastry as I have no idea on how to make it).
I cut out some circles, about four inches in diameter. Placed one circle on the baking tray, added the steak. Using beaten egg and a pastry brush I brushed egg around the edges of the circle and placed a second circle of puff pastry on top. This top puff pastry circle was then brushed with beaten egg.
The parcels were then baked in an oven for about ten to fifteen minutes until golden brown.
I served mine with a mix of salads.
