Recipe - Mini Wellingtons

This is a recipe I got from Olive Magazine a couple of years ago.

It's a really easy thing to cook but it looks well impressive when you plate it up. You can vary the recipe quite a bit, make your own topping etc but this is the quick and easy way to make Wellingtons.

I normally serve this with some potatoes and some nice steamed green beans.

Mini Wellingtons (serves 4)

2 x 375g packs ready-rolled puff pastry, each cut into 4
4 fillet steaks, thick cut, brushed with a little oil and seasoned
1 egg, beaten
4 tablespoons mushroom pate, use a good-quality bought one

Heat the oven to 220c/gasmark 7. Char-grill or sear the steaks on each side for the following times to suit your taste:

Rare - 30 seconds
Medium rare - 2 minutes
Medium - 3 minutes

Cool slightly, then top each with pate and put them on a piece of pastry. Lay another piece of pastry on top, trim, leaving a border and seal. Glaze with egg, then bake for 12 minutes.
