  • 200 grams of mushrooms
  • 200 grams of onion
  • 200 grams of green asparagus
  • 100 grams of serrano ham or bacon
  • 3 slices of serrano ham or bacon
  • 1 rectangular puff pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 2 potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mustard

Step by step

  1. Prepare the sirloin

    Season the sirloin with salt and pepper and mark it in a pan with a little hot oil, to seal the meat on the outside and keep all its juices inside. Sear it for about 10 minutes, turning it over so it seals on all sides.

  2. Make a duxelle with the onion and mushrooms

    Peel the onions and chop them finely. Clean the mushrooms and chop them too. Fry the two ingredients together in a pan with a little oil. Remove from the pan, let drain in a colander and set aside.

  3. Unroll the puff pastry

    Spread the sheet of puff pastry on the work surface and cut a strip one finger thick to decorate the wellington at the end.

  4. Shaping the Wellington

    Cover the sheet of puff pastry with the ham or slightly streaked bacon bits. Place the sirloin on top and cover it with the mushroom and onion duxelle. Wrap the meat in the puff pastry and transfer the wellington to a baking sheet, seam side down. Tuck in the ends for proper cooking.

  5. decorate and bake

    Make a grid with the strip of puff pastry that you have reserved, to decorate the Wellington. Bake at 220º for 25 minutes. If you see the surface of the wellington browning too much during cooking, cover it with baking paper.

  6. fry the potatoes

    Peel and wash the potatoes. Cut them into sticks of the same size and fry them in abundant hot oil, until golden brown.
