Instructions
 

METHOD

  • 800g of Irish Beef fillet, cleaned with sinew taken off
  • Season the beef fillet thoroughly with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat and, once the pan is nice and hot, add the beef, sprinkling over the chopped thyme. Sear the fillet, turning it every 1-2 minutes to ensure that all sides are coloured. Remove the beef once the outside has browned but the centre is still rare. Coat with the Pommery mustard and leave to rest in the fridge

For the mushroom duxelle…

  • Melt the butter in the same pan, then add the chopped mushrooms and sauté until golden brown. Remove from the pan and leave to one side
  • Soften the chopped shallots and garlic in the same pan, then add the mushrooms back in and cook until the liquid evaporates. Add the Madeira, bringing it to the boil and then reduce the amount of liquid by half. Add the cream and stir until the mixture has thickened and is beginning to darken. Season with salt and pepper and leave to one side

For the pancakes…

  • Make a smooth batter by whisking the milk, eggs and flour together. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan. When it is hot, add the right amount of batter to make a very thin layer in the bottom of the pan. Cook until golden on the underside, then flip the pancake over and cook the other side. Repeat this process until all the batter has been used and set the cooked pancakes to one side
  • Quickly blanch the spinach leaves in boiling water and then add to iced water to cool. Remove the leaves and ensure that they are dried thoroughly
  • Place a sheet of cling film onto a board and lay 3 pancakes onto it. Ensure that the pancakes fully cover the cling film, overlapping where necessary. Add a single layer of spinach leaves on top of the pancakes and spread the mushroom duxelle evenly over the spinach. Lie the beef on top and wrap the pancakes, spinach and mushrooms tightly around the fillet
  • Spread the mushroom duxelle evenly over the spinach and add the beef on top. Wrap the pancakes, spinach and mushroom mix around the Beef in the cling film, making sure they are wrapped tightly and are fully sealed. Leave in the fridge to rest, overnight if possible
  • Roll out the puff pastry into a thin sheet about 1/4 cm thick – it will need to be rolled thinner if the pastry is pre- rolled
  • You will need 400g of puff pastry
