METHOD

Pre-heat the oven 220°C. First, season the beef with salt and pep­per, then sear the fil­let quickly, in a hot pan. Leave to cool, and brush English mus­tard all over the out­side. Lay the pan­cakes and spread a thin layer of chicken mousse on top, place the fil­let in­side the pan­cake, and roll. Wrap the whole thing in cling film and set in the fridge for a few hours. Lay out a sheet of puff pas­try, brush with egg wash, and place the fil­let of beef (wrapped in pan­cakes) in­side that. Wrap the puff pas­try around and tuck un­der­neath. Egg wash on the out­side and set in the fridge for at least 30 min­utes and up to 24 hours. Egg wash one more time, then cook for 23 min­utes for golden, crispy pas­try. Probe tem­per­a­ture of the meat should be 50°C. Once cooked, leave to rest for 20 min­utes – then serve medium rare. En­joy with friends, and beer.
