Filet Mignon Wellington and Portobello Duxelle


Ingredients:
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1 Tbsp shallots, minced
• 3 large Portobello mushrooms, finely diced
• 1/2 cup white wine
• 1 tsp italian parsley, chopped
• 1 tsp butter
• salt and pepper
• 4-6 oz. filet mignon steaks
• 4 sheets rolled puff pastry (rolled out 6 x 6)

Preparation:
In a sauté pan, heat olive oil and sauté shallots. Add mushrooms and deglaze with white wine. Cook down until all the liquids have evaporated, then turn off heat. Add parsley, butter and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside and cool. On a charcoal grill or hot sauté pan, sear both sides of filet steaks for 45 seconds. Spread mushroom mixture evenly onto the tops of the filets. Place each filet on the center of each rolled pastry square. Fold in the corners to close and turn over, so that the seams are face down. Bake 7-10 minutes in a preheated 400°oven.

Serve with demi glace of your choice.
