Recipe – Individual Beef Wellington

Every year for Christmas, we make untraditional dinners, as it’s very small and only family. One year I wanted to be a little fancier and made these individual beef wellingtons, and I was able to customize them for each person. Here is the basic recipe and feel free to make them to your tastes.

  • Individual Beef Wellingtons
    • Ingredients:
      • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
      • ½ cup chopped onion 
      • ½ cup dry sherry
      • ¼ cup butter
      • ¼ cup chopped parsley
      • 6 (8 ounce) fillets beef tenderloin
      • 1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • Directions:
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the mushrooms, onion, sherry, butter or margarine and parsley and sauté until all the liquid is absorbed and the mixture resembles a paste. Cover the top of each steak with the mixture.
    • Partially thaw the puff pastry sheets and roll out pieces thin enough to cover the top, sides and bottom of each steak. Place the steaks on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until serving time.
    • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
    • Bake steaks uncovered in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. (Note: They will be rare but will continue cooking while dish is sitting.)

Happy Eating!
