The Ultimate Beef Wellington

Note: A center-cut beef tenderloin is also known as a Châteubriand. For best results, use a high quality all-butter puff pastry, such as Dufour. Alternatively, make your own using this recipe and technique. Foie gras pâté can be used in place of the fresh foie gras. Is using pâté, skip step 7. In step 9, spread foie gras pâté on top of tenderloin in place of sliced fresh foie gras.
