1 tsp Dijon mustard
tsp dried thyme
Salt and coarse ground pepper
1 TBL butter
cup goose liver pate or Duxelles
1 sheet puff pastry, 1/8 in thick
1 tsp milk
1 egg

Pre heat oven to 425. Rub the filet with mustard on all sides, then sprinkle salt pepper and thyme on them. Melt butter in small skillet and sear filet on all sides, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

Decorate top with cut outs from pastry trimmings if desired.

Bake 15 minutes for Med Rare, serve immediately on a puddle of Creamed Mushroom sauce. Recipe in Sauces.

Duxelles is a mixture of finely chopped mushrooms, shallots and thyme, slowly cooked in butter until it is a thick paste.
