baby beef wellington


60g baby spinach
3 sheets puff pastry
350g piece beef eye fillet
1 egg, beaten lightly


Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Wilt the spinach in boiling water, or over a steamer. Put aside.
Cut 8 pieces off the beef fillet, as equal sizes as possible.
Cut 8 10cm diameter circle pieces of the pastry.
Place a piece of the beef over a pastry circle, top with a little spinach, cover with another pastry circle. Press to seal. Once all these are done, place on a wire rack in a baking tray. Brush with egg.
Bake for 15-20 min, or until pastry is golden.
Serve (with veges, in our case).

These were demolished – the beef in the middle was really tender. Yummy.
