    Prep Time

  • 6 People


  • 1 Knorr Beef Gravy Pot
  • 300 g field mushrooms finely chopped
  • 300 g ready-rolled puff pastry sheets
  • 25 g butter
  • 15 g fresh porcini mushrooms soaked in cold water
  • 1 kg piece beef fillet trimmed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 5 ml vegetable oil
  • freshly ground pepper

  1. Soak the porcini mushrooms for 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter and sauté the onion and chopped mushrooms slowly until soft and the liquid has evaporated. Leave to cool.

  3. Heat the oil until hot in a large non-stick frying pan, season the meat and brown on all sides. Lift out the beef, reserving the juices, and leave to cool.

  4. Drain porcini mushrooms and add liquor to meat juices. Chop mushrooms and add to onion mix.

  5. Roll out pastry on a floured surface to a rectangle 35x25cm (14 x 10 inches). Trim the edges and spoon one third of the mushroom mix over the centre and sit the beef on top. Spread remaining mix over the top. Brush edges of pastry with the egg and wrap the pastry over the meat to encase completely.

  6. Place the seal underneath and use pastry trimmings to make the decoration. Cover and chill until required.

  7. When ready to cook, place on a greased baking sheet and brush with the egg. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 220°C, 200°C fan, Gas Mark 7 for 30–35 minutes for rare or 5 minutes more for medium-rare.

  8. While the beef rests for 5-10 minutes, reheat the reserved juices with the Knorr Gravy Pot and 280ml water. Whisk until boiled and thickened. Serve the gravy with the beef cut into 6 thick slices and garnished with fresh thyme. Serve with new potatoes and a selection of vegetables.
