Ingredients

  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1-3/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Nutritional Facts

1 beef wellington equals 945 calories, 51 g fat (13 g saturated fat), 127 mg cholesterol, 866 mg sodium, 74 g carbohydrate, 10 g fiber, 48 g protein.

Directions

  1. Sprinkle steaks with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet, brown steaks in 1 tablespoon oil for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in remaining oil until tender. Stir in remaining salt and pepper; cool to room temperature.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each puff pastry sheet into a 14x9-1/2-in. rectangle. Cut into two 7-in. squares (use scraps to make decorative cutouts if desired). Place a steak in the center of each square; top with mushroom mixture. Lightly brush pastry edges with water. Bring opposite corners of pastry over steak; pinch seams to seal tightly.
  4. Place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Cut four small slits in top of pastry. Arrange cutouts over top if desired. Brush with egg.
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.

I added garlic and red wine to my mushrooms and onions. It was amazing!! This was easy to make as well. I have always been scared to try to make this but it was one of the best dishes that I have done.

I made this recipe with elk tenderloin and it was fantastic and easy!! I have so much wild meat that I am always looking for new ways to serve it. 5-Stars. I even used canned mushrooms and it was delicious.
