15 grams fresh porcini mushrooms soaked in cold water
25 grams butter
1 onion finely chopped
300 grams field mushrooms finely chopped
5 ml vegetable oil
1 kg piece beef fillet trimmed
300 grams ready-rolled puff pastry sheets
1 egg beaten
freshly ground pepper
1 Knorr Beef Gravy Pot
Soak the porcini mushrooms for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the butter and sauté the onion and chopped mushrooms slowly until soft and the liquid has evaporated. Leave to cool.
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.
Drain porcini mushrooms and add liquor to meat juices. Chop mushrooms and add to onion mix.
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.
Place the seal underneath and use pastry trimmings to make the decoration. Cover and chill until required.
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.
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.
