How to Make Beef Wellington
Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil and cook the diced mushrooms in a skillet for about three minutes.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Generously, salt and pepper filet Mignon on both sides. Add oil to same skillet and on high heat pan sear filets for 2 minutes on each side.
Next, place the phyllo dough on a flat surface and brush each sheet with melted butter. Layer 6 sheets of phyllo dough then cut into quarters for each filet mignon.
Place 2 tbsp of mushroom mixture at the center of the layered phyllo and spread.
Lay the filet on top of the mushrooms and then top the steak with more mushroom mixture.
Fold all 4 corners of the phyllo together and twist tightly to close. Brush remaining butter on the outside.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, or until dough is golden brown, on a lightly greased baking dish. Let fillets rest for 5 minutes. Serves 4.
