This classic British dish features tender beef fillet wrapped in flaky puff pastry and baked to perfection. With its golden crust and savory filling, it’s a showstopper for any special occasion.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds beef tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Season the beef tenderloin with salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in a pan over high heat and sear the beef on all sides until browned. Remove from heat and brush with Dijon mustard. Allow it to cool.
  3. In the same pan, sauté the mushrooms and garlic until they release their moisture and become browned. Stir in fresh parsley and set aside to cool.
  4. Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface. Place the mushroom mixture in the center and lay the seared beef on top.
  5. Wrap the puff pastry around the beef and seal the edges. Brush with the beaten egg for a golden finish.
  6. Transfer the Wellington to a baking sheet and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the beef reaches your desired level of doneness.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
