I have a couple of pork tenderloins that I'm gonna cook up tomorrow. I was thinking of wrapping them in puff pastry, but I'm not sure what to put in with the pork. Maybe some goat cheese and bacon with garlic and onions?? Any ideas??

    Rick G,
    I have never made a Beef Wellington, but it was my understanding the you generally cooked the beef first, so that it was basically done and you were just warming it up when you cooked the pastry.[p]I would think that you would really want to do that to get he pork to 138 before you wrapped it. Otherwise you are going to be worried about the pork when the pastry is done.

    Rick G,
    Traditional Beef Wellingtons have a muchroom duexelle around the outside of a seared tenderloin. The loin is only seared not cooked all the way through. it is cooled then the duexelle is wrapped around the loin. Then it is wrapped in puff pastry. Then coat the pastry with an egg wash. 3 yolks and 1 egg plus 1/4 cup of water. Coat all the pastry for even browning. We bake ours at 400*f for 15 min then turn down to 375 till golden brown. Then take out of oven and let rest for 15 minutes. I am sure that some one can figure out how to do it on an egg!
