2 1/2 pounds of beef tenderloin cut into six equal size portions.
2 red bell peppers roasted, peeled and diced
6 slices of thick bacon chopped
½ an onion chopped
1 8oz block cream cheese
¾ Cup Blue Cheese
3 sheets puff pastry
2 eggs for egg wash Salt and pepper to taste.
In a 10 inch Dutch oven, cook the chopped bacon till golden brown then add the onions and cook till translucent. Combine the bacon, onions, roasted bell peppers, blue cheese, and cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Season the tenderloin and set aside. Heat Dutch oven lid and coat with oil, then sear the seasoned portions of beef on all sides, then you will assemble the en croutes. You will start with cutting the dough into 6 equal portions then place an equal part of the cheese filling on each portion followed with the steak. You will then wrap the dough up and seal the bottom with a little bit of egg wash to keep it from coming open. When that is done you can use any scrap dough to create a garnish. Egg wash the dough, attach the garnish, and then egg wash the garnish. Bake these in a 14 inch Dutch oven till the dough is golden brown and the meat reaches 145 degrees. Let the en croutes rest for 7 minutes then place on a dutch oven lid and serve.
