Mini Beef Wellingtons

I discovered this lovely starter at a wedding I attended. After sampling one, I decided I had to try duplicating the recipe at home. I think my version is a bit easier and faster to prepare, but just as elegant in appearance and just as crowd-pleasing.—Annie De La Hoz, Delta, Colorado

    40 appetizers

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 14 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth, undiluted, divided
  • 1 cup Madeira or Marsala wine, divided
  • 1/2 pound medium fresh mushrooms, finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 tubes (16.3 ounces each) large refrigerated flaky biscuits

Directions

  • In a Dutch oven, brown roast on all sides in 4 tablespoons butter. Pour 1/2 cup broth and 1/2 cup wine over roast. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until tender. Remove roast and cool slightly; shred meat with two forks.
