Tenderloin In Puff Pastry

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min.


4 servings

I came up with this dish after combining several different recipes. I wrap up each beef tenderloin, topped with a tasty mushroom mixture, in a sheet of puff pastry. It sounds like a lot of work, but it isn't...and it's so elegant. -Julie Mahoney St. Edward, Nebraska

  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (1-3/4 inches thick and 5 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. In a large skillet, brown steaks in oil on both sides. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet; transfer steaks to wire rack. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in butter until tender; drain. Stir in the salt and pepper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 13-in. square. Cut into 4 squares. Place one steak in the center of each square; top with mushroom mixture. Combine egg and water; brush over pastry.
  3. Bring up corners to center and tuck in edges; press to seal. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until pastry is golden brown and meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), 20-25 minutes.
