Beef Tenderloin & Mushroom Open Face Sliders

Andy Anderson !


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.

recipe of beef stock and red wine reduction Master Recipe: Beef Stock/Red Wine Reduction Sauce
puff pastry sheet, thawed
8 oz
beef tenderloin filet
1 Tbsp
sweet butter, unsalted
salt, kosher variety to taste
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste


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.
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.
24Serve to your guests while still nice and warm. Enjoy.
25Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
