Mini Beef Wellingtons!

These Mini Beef Wellingtons are soooooooo ridiculously tasty… AND they will be the easiest Beef wellingtons you will ever make! I mean, you could make them complicated by making your own puff pastry if you like, but I definitely didn’t do that! Two sheets of puff pastry, a filet of beef, some mushrooms & an onion and you’ve got yourself these amazing pockets of heaven! I feel that most people I speak to are a little scared of a beef Wellington due to cooking times, prep work and temperatures on the beef etc. Well you can say goodbye to any worries with these mini versions, the messier they come out, the tastier they usually are, so don’t toss out the ‘not so pretty’ ones! 

They are sure to shine no matter what at your next party or family gathering. I made 24 earlier today and between 3 of us we devoured them in less than 5 minutes (Absolute Animals, I know!). Pleaseeee go and make these and let me know how they go down!

Ingredients
  1. Olive Oil or Butter
  2. 1-2 lbs of Beef Filet (cut into 24 half inch cubes approx.)
  3. Salt and pepper
  4. 6 oz. mushrooms finely (and I mean fineeee) chopped
  5. 1 medium onion finely chopped
  6. 1 clove of garlic crushed
  7. 1 sprig of rosemary (approx. 10 leaves) finely chopped
  8. 2 sheets of puff pastry
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F
  2. Chop your beef into cubes, season with salt and pepper and then sear in olive oil or butter on a high heat for 30 seconds! Just make sure to get two sides of the beef.
  3. Place your seared cubes into a bowl with paper towel inside to cool.
  4. Now place your mushrooms in the same pan and cook on low for about 5 minutes
  5. Add your onions, garlic & rosemary and cook for a further 5 mins until all the water from the veg has evaporated and your left with a sort of mushroom onion mush! Season with a little salt and pepper
  6. Roll your puff pastry sheets out to an approximate 14 x 10 inch rectangle.
  7. Chop your pastry sheets into 12 equal squares (4 rows of 3)
  8. Place a teaspoon of mushroom mixture onto each square and top with a piece of seared beef.
  9. Now fold up (corner to corner) each square - use a little water on your fingers if your pastry won't stick together to form a bond. You want to make sure there are no holes for the goodness to ooze out of.
  10. Flip your parcels over and shape slightly with your fingers.
  11. Brush with an egg wash (we use one egg, a tbsp cream & sprinkle of salt)
  12. Prick each parcel twice with a fork on the top
  13. Place in the oven for 20 minutes (or shorter/longer if necessary) until they look a gorgeous golden brown.
  14. Serve with a Horseradish Sauce or sauce of your choice!
  15. To Make a Quick Horseradish sauce put 2 tbsp horseradish with 1 tsp sour cream and a tsp. mayo (Sprinkle in some salt and pepper and stir!)
