Tips

  • Tie the tenderloin with a kitchen twine. In this way, its shape is also preserved while cooking.
  • Make sure to wrap the beef tightly in the puff pastry. The tighter the wrap, the better and even the meat will cook.
  • Let the meat rest for a while before wrapping it in the mille feuille. Leave in the refrigerator or freezer for about 30 minutes. In this way, it can prevent the meat from overcooking.
  • Make sure that the mushrooms are not too watery. Otherwise, after wrapping the dough, it may overflow and wet the dough.
  • Spread egg yolk on the meat and on the mille feuille. This will make the dough more crispy. The inside will remain more juicy.
  • Beat the egg yolks with 1 tablespoon of water and a pinch of salt.
