    Serves: 4 

    • 1 (500g) beef brisket joint
    • salt and black pepper to taste
    • 1 tub (115g) mushroom pate
    • 1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry
    • milk or beaten egg, for brushing

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / 180 C fan / Gas 6.
    2. Season the joint well with salt and pepper, and place on a roasting tray. Roast the beef in a preheated oven for 45 minutes, or to the desired doneness.
    3. Allow beef to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. If necessary, untie the brisket and allow to unroll.
    4. Spread the pate onto the pastry (as if buttering bread).
    5. Wrap the beef in the pastry and fold in the ends. Brush over with milk or beaten egg.
    6. Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, according to pastry manufacturer's instructions, or till golden brown.


    Allowing the joint to unroll will give a nice beef to pastry ratio.
