Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves and fresh parsley sprigs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 6 sheets refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1-1/4 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or additional beef broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon browning sauce, optional

Directions

  1. For pesto, in a food processor, combine 3 tablespoons oil, basil, parsley, Parmesan cheese and salt. Cover and process until smooth; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, brown steaks in 2 tablespoons butter and remaining oil for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms until liquid is absorbed.
  3. Cut each pastry sheet into an 8-in. square (discard scraps or save for another use). Place a steak on each square. Spread steak with about 1 tablespoon of pesto; top with mushrooms.
  4. Bring opposite corners of pastry over steak and pinch seams to seal tightly. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. brush egg over pastry.
  5. Bake at 450° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  6. For gravy, melt remaining butter in the same skillet; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with the beef bundles. Yield: 6 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2013

I followed the recipes with exception of a few minor changes, such ass I used puff pastry, and I cooled the meat after searing and same with pesto and mushrooms. But the main things were spot on!
