1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
For beef wellingtons, melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add
onion and cook until soft. Add mushrooms, increase heat to medium high
and cook until mushrooms become dark in colour. Transfer mixture to a
bowl and wipe out pan.
3. Pour oil into same frying pan and
place over high heat. Season steak with salt and pepper and place in
pan. Cook for two minutes each side until evenly browned. Remove from
heat and allow to cool.

the centre of each pastry circle and spread into a smooth circle. Top
each with half the mushroom mixture and steak.
