Ingredients

3 lb
filet mignon, whole and trimmed
"just a pinch" of salt
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 lb
mushrooms, finely chopped
2
shallots, chopped
1 pkg
phyllo dough
1/2 c
butter, melted

SAUCE INGREDIENTS

3 Tbsp
butter
1.5 Tbsp
flour
3/4 c
beef stock
1 tsp
kitchen bouquet
1/4 c
madeira wine

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Rub filet with salt. In a heavy skillet, sear the meat over high heat in sweet butter until brown on all sides to seal in the juices. Set aside.
2
Layer 12 pieces of phyllo pastry together, brushing each layer with melted butter.

Spread about half of the mushroom/shallot mixture on the pastry and place the seared beef on top. Then place remaining mushrooms on top of filet and fold the phyllo dough around the filet.
3
Prepare an additional 5 to 6 layers of phyllo pastry, each brushed with butter. Seal all edges of roast by overlapping with this additional pastry and brush with butter.

Place beef in a buttered baking pan and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until pastry is browned and flaky. Prepare madiera sauce while beef is baking.

MADIERA SAUCE:

Melt the butter, stir in flour, and cook for 5 minutes. Add beef stock, kitchen bouquet, and madeira. Cook until thickened.

Remove beef to a serving dish and serve with madeira sauce.
