This is a great starter to put out at a Memorial Day party, or any other time, for that matter.

It’s fairly easy to assemble, and the parts can be made a day ahead, reheated, and served when needed.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

1
recipe of beef stock and red wine reduction Master Recipe: Beef Stock/Red Wine Reduction Sauce

Step-By-Step

1PREP/PREPARE
2Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
3Lightly dust a clean surface with some flour and roll out the puff pastry to a 10x10 inch square (25x25cm).
4Use a cookie cutter to make 3-inch (7.5cm) circles; you should have about 8 circles.
5Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and dock using a fork.
6Chef’s Note: Docking is just a fancy term for poking a lot of holes in the dough.
7Place in the preheated oven until nice and brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
8Chef’s Tip: If they begin puffing up too much, open the oven and dock them a second time.
9Remove from the oven, and reserve.
10Add some salt and pepper, to both sides of the tenderloin.
11Add the butter to an ovenproof skillet set over medium-high heat.
12Add the tenderloin.
13Cook about 3 minutes per side, or until nice and brown.
14Add the skillet to the preheated oven, and cook until rare to medium rare. From 3 to 5 minutes.
15Chef’s Note: In my option, with a recipe like this, it can’t be too rare, but that’s just me.
16Remove from oven and allow the tenderloin to rest for 10 minutes.
17Cut into thin slices.
18THE ASSEMBLY
19Place a puff pastry round onto a serving plate.
20Add some of the mushrooms to the top of the pastry.
21Add a few slices of beef tenderloin.
22Add a bit of the beef/wine reduction sauce to the top.
23PLATE/PRESENT
24Serve to your guests while still nice and warm. Enjoy.
25Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
