This as wonderful. I used individual Filet Mignon to serve 4 people (1 lb). Since I did this for an elegant dinner each person had a 4 oz piece. Good for portion controllers too! This is what I did a little differently: I did not bake the steak. Instead, I seared it 2 minutes on each side on high heat on a skillet with the butter. Instead of using pastry sheets, I used puff pastry SHELLS. I placed the steak on a middle of the cookie sheet and had the shells surrounding it. Baked everything at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I let everything cool for 5 minutes and then cut each filet in half. Thsi gave me 4 pieces, around 4 oz each. I then plated in this order: pastry shell at the bottom, filet, mushroom mixture, pate, pastry shell. This not only kept the pastry crispy but it was also more beautiful, I think, than wrapping it with pastry.
