How to Make Beef Wellington Bites

Prepare the Beef 

Cut tenderloin filet mignon into bit size pieces or cubes. If you don’t want to use beef tenderloin, substitute rib eye or tenderize sirloin.  But really, the beef tenderloin or filet mignon is the best cut of meat for this appetizer.  Dip each cube in mustard.  Set aside until all meat bites are coated.  To cook beef tenderloin in general check out this information.

Saute mushrooms and shallots in oil in small skillet over medium high heat. Sauté until browned. Toss in salt and pepper.  Set aside to cool.

In a medium sized skillet with no oil, on simmer or medium high heat, let pan get hot. Watch carefully add mustard coated beef pieces. Allow to simmer until brown on both sides of meat. Do not over cook. Remove pan from heat add 1 tablespoon of butter. Gently stir to coat browned meat.  Let cool.

Preparing the Packet

Whisk together an egg yolk with water to make an egg wash.  Set aside. On floured surface, roll out thawed pastry sheet into a 12″ x 12″ square, about 1/8″ thick. Using a 3″ x 3″ template or biscuit square cutter, cut pastry into 12 squares.  Layer the following ingredients in the center of each pastry square; mushrooms, one beef cube, 1/4 teaspoon or more Boursin Cream. Brush edge of pastry with egg wash.

Place packets on parchment lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes to help firm up the pastry.  Repeat process with all pastry and beef ingredients.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Brush chilled packets with egg wash. Bake bites for 10 minutes until puffed and brown.
