How to Cook Beef Wellington With Ham

  1. Add the mushrooms to your blender and season them with salt and pepper. Blend until finely chopped.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook them for about 10 minutes, while stirring often.
  3. Add the remaining vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and melt it.
    Add the beef and season it with salt. Cook it for 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
  5. Lay a sheet of plastic foil on your wooden board and arrange the ham slices on it, in slightly overlapping rows. Evenly spread the mushroom paste over the ham.
  6. Lay the beef tenderloin on the side closest to you. Start rolling from that side towards the opposite end. Press it, removing the excess air.
  7. Lay the puff pastry sheet on your wooden board and level it with a rolling pin. Evenly spread the English mustard over it.
    Lay the roll in the middle of the pastry. Carefully wrap the beef with the pastry, fully covering it.
  8. Spread egg yolk over the pastry and superficially score it on top.
    Place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and cook it into the oven for the next 35 minutes!
