serves 2

10oz Beef fillet
2oz Onion
7oz Mushrooms

4. Blanch and refresh the spinach

Cooking Steps:
1. Heat the butter in a pan and fry the onions, mushrooms and parsley to produce a duxelles. Remove and allow to cool
2. Heat the oil in a pan. Season the fillet and seal. Place in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes, then remove and rest
3. Cut a puff pastry disc and place the spinach in the center. Place some of the duxelles on the spinach and place the beef on top. Place some more duxelles and spinach on top
4. Fold the pastry up to enclose the meat. Add a small pastry disc to create a seal. Turn upside down and brush with egg yolk. Garnish with extra pastry. Rest for 20 minutes in the fridge
5. Bake in the oven at 350°F for ~20 minutes per lb until golden brown. This will achieve a medium rare product. Rest for 5 minutes
