- 60 ml (4 tbsp.) butter
- 4 filets mignons (150 g each or 1/3 lb)
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 3 small cloves of garlic, chopped
- 5 ml (1 tsp.) thyme, finely chopped
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) Paris mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) shiitake mushrooms
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) oyster mushrooms
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) 35% cream
- 1 package (200 g or 7 oz) puff pastry dough, store-bought
- 8 slices of Parma ham
- 8 slices of Tomme de Grosse-Île (about 250 g or 8 oz), rind removed
- 4 egg yolks, beaten
- In a large frying pan, melt 30 ml (2 tbsp.) of butter and sear the filets mignons, 30 seconds on each side. Season the filets with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Melt the rest of the butter and brown the shallot, garlic and thyme for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and let them soften. Pour the cream, stir and let it reduce for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool down.
- With a rolling pin, flatten the puff pastry dough and cut 4 disks, large enough to wrap each filet mignon.
- Place 2 slices of Parma ham and 2 slices of Tomme de Grosse-Île on each disk of puff pastry dough. Add some mushroom filling. Place the filet mignon and wrap it with the puff pastry dough. Repeat these steps for the other 3 filets mignons.
- Place each piece on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
- Refrigerate for 15 minutes, and then brush with egg yolks.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Bake for 12 minutes for rare meat.
- Serve with your favourite demi-glace sauce.
