one of my favorite recipes that we prepare with love when invited to dinner a special guest...
500 g beef fillet
500 g mushrooms
8 slices of Parma ham
Dijon mustard for brushing beef fillet
400g puff pastry
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 glass white wine
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven at 220\'C.
Season beef with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat a pan with olive oil and fry beef on high heat until is brown. Let to cool.
In food processor mix mushrooms, onion and garlic. Add this puree on the pan and fry for a few minutes. Add a glass white wine and let to evaporated alcohol.
On the plastic foil put first layer Parma ham, then mushrooms puree and beef (brushing beef with mustard). Easy roll all in plastic foil and keep on fridge for 30 minutes.
Unwrap the meat from the cling film. Roll out the pastry and put the meat on the center. Egg wash the edge of the pastry and roll up the pastry. Turnover and egg wash over the top. Mark the pastry using the back of a small knife to make a cross hatch.
Baking at 220\'C for about 30-35 minutes. Rest a few minutes before using.
