How to Make Beef Wellington


  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Season the beef's surface with salt and pepper. Put in a heated skillet with butter, and sear side and ends for about 1 1/2 minutes each. Place tenderloin in refrigerator and cool. Put onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper in skillet, and cook until almost tender.
  • 2Add sherry and cook until no liquid remains. Season to taste and let cool. On a floured surface, roll puff pastry until 1/4" (6mm) thick and large enough to cover beef.
  • 3Spread tenderloin with pate' and the mushroom mixture on alternating sections. Fold up dough to enclose tenderloin and chill for 1/2 hour. Brush with egg. Cook at 425 degrees F. for 30 minutes to reach an internal temperature of 135 degrees F.
