Description

This is such an amazing version of classic Beef Wellington with tender center cut tenderloin wrapped in ham, duxelles and flaky puff pastry!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Cremini Mushrooms
  • 1 whole Shallot
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 dashes Olive Oil
  • 1 whole (about 1 3/4 Lb. Size) Center Cut Beef Tenderloin Roast
  • Salt And Freshly Cracked Black Pepper, As Needed For Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 4 slices Ham, Thinly Sliced
  • 2 whole Sheets Frozen Puff Pastry
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten

Preparation

First, make the duxelles. Combine mushrooms, shallot and garlic in a food processor and pulse it all together until it is a fine mixture. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet with deep sides. While it heats up, use kitchen twine to tightly tie up the roast if it isn’t already. Season it generously with the salt and pepper before you brown it on all sides in the pan. It should take 2–3 minutes on each side to develop a nice brown crust. Transfer it to a cutting board to rest. Add the duxelles to the same pan the beef was brown it. Let it all cook down until the moisture is gone and it becomes a dry, almost pasty mixture. It should take about 6–7 minutes. While it is cooking, cut the twine off of the beef tenderloin and brush it all over with the mustard. When the duxelles is done, take the pan off of the heat and set it aside.

Lay out two large, overlapping sheets of plastic wrap on a clean surface and lay out the ham in an overlapping layer on it. Then spread the duxelles in a thick, packed in layer on the ham. Place the tenderloin in the center of the ham layer, then use the plastic wrap to wrap it up tightly, twisting the ends. Put it in the refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes. This helps it set and keep its shape. While it is chilling, lay out another layer of plastic wrap and place one of the puff pastry sheets in the middle of it. Unwrap the chilled tenderloin from the plastic and place it in the center of the puff pastry sheet. Wrap it up tightly, making sure to pinch the seam and the ends together well. Wrap it in the plastic wrap and chill it again for 15 minutes.

At this point preheat oven to 400ºF and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Take the chilled beef wellington and place it on the sheet tray. Use a fork to gently score lined patterns in the dough if you wish, and use the second sheet of puff pastry to cut out any shapes you like. This is all optional. If you do cut out shapes to decorate, place them on the beef wellington and gently press them into the puff pastry dough. Generously brush the whole thing with the beaten egg and bake it for 35–40 minutes to achieve a medium to medium well beef with some pink in the middle. Let it rest for 5 or so minutes, then slice and serve!
