Beef Fillet in Puff Pastry

provided by Banfi
Carré di Manzo in crosta alla Balsamica

1-1/2 lbs beef fillet
1/6 lb thin slices bacon
1/2 lb frozen puff pastry
3 Tbsp Salsa Balsamica (or good quality Balsamic vinegar)
2 Tbsp Castello Banfi "Extra-Virgin" olive oil
15 grams mustard
1 Tbsp Worcester sauce/demiglacé
1 beaten egg
Flour, salt, pepper

Remove fat and skin from the fillet with a sharp knife. Season with salt and pepper and brown with oil in a very hot oven for 8-10 minutes. Put aside and keep cool. In the meantime, on the side, brown bacon on moderate heat, add mustard, Worcester sauce and Salsa Balsamica. Reduce the sauce by two thirds and baste the browned meat. Put the remaining sauce back on the burner, stretch with the demiglacè, season and adjust density and keep warm. Defrost puff pastry according to directions and after thawed, wrap the fillet first with the bacon, then with the puff pastry, close well, brush with egg and bake in oven until the pastry is golden. Suggested wine pairing: Cecchi Valle delle Rose Morellino di Scansano
