Beef Wellington Tarts

This contemporary take on beef Wellington reimagines pastry-wrapped tenderloin as a tart, showcasing flavors both comforting and complex. Crisp, buttery puff pastry forms the foundation; foie gras enriches the sauce.

Cook's Notes

Pastry Tip: Packaged puff pastry works quite well, as long as it contains real butter (this ensures the pastry puffs into numerous rich, flaky layers). Don't forget to thaw the dough before baking.

    An excellent recipe! I served it Christmas Day, and it came together beautifully. I'd suggest that it would be possible to make the mushroom mixture a day ahead, and then reheat it just before assembling. In lieu of the fois gras mousse, I found a fresh pork/duck/goose mousse from a local gourmet store in Sister Bay, WI. It didn't "melt," but it worked just fine. I used the mousse on my portion, but not on my husband's portion (his "ick" factor issue). We both loved our meal.
