This is a particularly elegant way to serve a popular dinner-party entree of filet steaks wrapped in puff pastry, and saves carving at the table.

This is a really cool recipe to make with tenderloin - and this site has a video you can watch also. Just type in the search box - individual beef wellington - and when the recipe comes up, it will also give you a link to watch a video in how to make them. What a great Valentine's Day treat!!

This is just a tip if you like your beef wellington a little more done (than rare) - you can sear the medallion in a hot pan before topping it and wrapping it in the puff pastry. Then follow the recipe directions for cooking.

I usually put a small amount of oil, mustard & montreal steak spice all over the steaks and let them marinate a while. It's good to allow your meat to come to room temp before cooking. If you're not grilling them on the BBQ I would pan fry starting in a really hot pan to get a nice crust on the outside, then turn the temp down and cook to desired doneness or finish in the oven. Let rest for 5-10 minutes prior to eating. Tenderloins will still be good even if you over cook them but best at medium rare to medium at most.

The first thing that you should do is to take them out of the packaging and put them on a plate and put them back in the fridge. This will dry out the surface and make it easier to caramelize the steaks. This cut of beef doesn't do well on the BBQ, too little fat and they will dry out. I would then melt a stick of butter in a cast iron pan, add a sprig of fresh rosemary and thyme Sear the steaks quickly ,the hold the pan at a 45% angle , steaks at the top and away from direct heat, and keep spooning the butter over the steaks. Remove the steaks and tent with foil. Remove rosemary and thyme and then you can saute onions, peppers, mushrooms or whatever you like. This my hubby's favourite.

Simple is best I think. You have to grill them. There is no other better flavor than grilled steaks. Make a compound butter to top off. Something like garlic and shallot butter would be yummo!
