Ingredients for 6

  • 1 beef tenderloin, 3-5 pounds, trimmed.

  • 8 oz mushrooms

  • 2 shallots

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 2 sheets puff pastry

  • 8 slices prosciutto

  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • Kosher or sea salt

  • Black pepper

  • Optional equipment: lattice pastry roller

Directions

  • Step 1

    Set your Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 129ºF / 53.9ºC

  • Step 2

    Season beef tenderloin with salt and pepper. Place in vacuum bag or resealable ziplock bag.

  • Step 3

    Place in water bath and sous vide for 3 hours.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      While beef is cooking add mushrooms, garlic, and shallot to food processor or blender and process until a chunky paste is formed.

    • Step 2

      Add duxelles mixture to hot pan with butter. Cook until all moisture has evaporated and mixture is thick and dry. Reserve and cool.

    • Step 3

      When 3 hours is up, remove beef from water bath, remove from bag and dry well.

    • Step 4

      Clean pan from duxelles, and heat over high heat. Place beef in pan for 1-2 minutes to sear until some color has formed on outside.

    • Step 5

      Stretch two sheets of plastic wrap, overlapping 2 inches, on a cutting board. Layer prosciutto as long as tenderloin, leaving a bit overlapping. Spread duxelles mixture over prosciutto.

    • Step 6

      Slather beef with mustard, and place centered on prosciutto/duxelles.

    • Step 7

      Using plastic wrap as a guide, fold prosciutto over beef and use the plastic wrap to form a tight cylinder by twisting ends of plastic wrap rolling along cutting board.

    • Step 8

      Place in freezer for 30 minutes to chill and set.

    • Step 9

      While it's chilling in freezer, roll puff pastry into a 12" round or 12x12" square. Take second sheet of puff pastry (optional!) and roll it into same shape as above. Using a lattice pastry cutter, cut a strip of pastry. Carefully, unfold dough.

    • Step 10

      Stretch two sheets of plastic wrap, overlapping 2 inches, on a cutting board. Place puff pastry in center. Remove beef from freezer, unwrap from plastic wrap, and place in center of the puff pastry.

    • Step 11

      Using same technique as above, roll puff pastry around beef, using the plastic wrap to shape and tighten into an evenly shaped cylinder, trimming as necessary. Place in freezer for 30 minutes

    • Step 12

      Preheat oven to 475°F / 250°C with rack on lowest shelf. After 30 minutes, remove beef from freezer. Unwrap from plastic and place on cutting board.

    • Step 13

      Using puff pastry with pattern, drape over beef and adjust as necessary. Trim overhang. Brush with eggwash.

    • Step 14

      Place in oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, watching carefully. When pastry is browned and puffed, remove.

    • Step 15

      Slice, serve, and be ready to receive praise!
