Then came dinner.
Beef Wellington/ Corn butter/ Asparagus and a red wine demi glace.
Beef tenderloin ( or pork/ or chicken)
mushrooms (your choice, I only had button laying around)
Salt and pepper
Pan sear the beef until it’s brown on all sides. Right when it comes out of the pan, brush it with Keen’s mustard. Let that puppy rest.
in a blender or with a handmixer- dice/pulverize mushrooms and garlic
Cook the mushrooms in a dry pan until all the moisture is evaporated.
Let that mo- fo cool down a bit.
Lay down seran wrap.
Lay proscuitto on the wrap making a sheet of meat.
Spread the mushroom mixture on top of the proscuitto.
Place the tenderloin on top of the proscuitto/mushroom sheet.
Roll it all up super tight in the seran wrap and put it in the fridge for 15 min.
Roll out pastry
Put pastry on seran wrap
take the chilled meat/mushroom log, unwrap it and place it on the puff pastry. Roll it up like you did with the proscuitto and mushroom sheet.
Let that set in the fridge for 5 more minutes
Brush it w egg yolk
Sprinkle w salt
pop it in the oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. My oven sucks so it took 45.
Let it rest when it comes out. Slice. Eat. Coma
