  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, 1 chopped onion, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add egg, and mix well. Shape into 4 thick patties, not too large in diameter. Cook burgers on grill until brown.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute 1 chopped onion, and chopped mushrooms until brown and caramelized.
  4. Cut puff pastry into 4 squares, and roll pieces large enough to wrap burgers. Divide mushroom mixture into the center of each pastry, then top with burgers. Wrap pastry around burgers, and seal edges. Place parcels seam side down on a baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Serve with Red Grape Sauce.
  6. Meanwhile, make Red Grape Sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine grape juice, Worcestershire sauce, and bouillon. Mix the cornstarch with water, and stir into sauce. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened.

I love beef wellington, but this is a wonderful alternative. Thanks, Andy. I would recommend placing the parcels on a wire rack over another pan to avoid a soggy bottom. Great recipe!

I cooked my beef patties on the stovetop, seeing as how it's just a bit too chilly now to grill. I cooked them until they were browned, and just cooked enough to lift them without them crumbling. I actually backed off the amount of onion it calls for. I wound up using 1.5 onions, and it was plenty! I also added some cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and sea salt to the beef mixture. It was still a tad bland, but the grape sauce was the saving grace!

This whole dish turned out beautifully. I think the person that said it was difficult to keep all of the ingredients in the puff pastry either didn't roll the pasrty out at all, or forgot to put some flour underneath so it wouldn't stick. I made it for a dinner party and was congratulated on such an impressive dinner! I followed the recipe exactly except I reduced the amount of onion. You have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already. Try this one!

Tried this without the sauce, realized it was too bland. Asked my husband to wait two minutes and whipped up the sauce. With it, this dish went from good to excellent!

Loved this recipe and my husband and kids loved it too. I did make the grape juice sauce and tasted it when it was done and really did not like that, so I chucked it and sauteed more onions and mushrooms till they were caramelized, sprinkled them with a little flour to thicken it, added 1/8 cup of water and some chicken soup boullion to season and served this sauce over the beef parcels. It was amazing. This recipe is definitely a keeper and will be a regular at our dinner table. My daughter suggested that I make mini ones and serve them as appetizers when I have company and I will definitely do this as well.

The first time I made the recipe as is except the sauce. For the sauce I used beef broth, red wine and worcestershire sauce and cornstarch. The second time I made it I added chopped green pepper to the mushroom mixture. I don't put it seam side down, I like all the "puff" to be on top and not soaking up the grease. I need to buy a rack to get them out of the grease.

needs the sauce, and good mushrooms and onion. Red wine works great in place of the grape juice. Flour the counter before using the pastry!!

This was a hit in our house. Hubby really liked it. Did it pretty much as it said. Used frozen sheets of puff pastry & it worked perfectly.
