Well, unless your Mom is one connected lady. To test this device, I wanted to try it out on a large piece of meat. So, I went to the local store and found that pork tenderloins were on sale.

Mini Beef Wellington

I am continuing with Holiday Appetizer Week.  With all of the snow in DC, Tucker and I have been cooped up in the house.  So, I wanted something warm and delicious to eat.  Nothing says warm and delicious like Beef.  When I used to work as a caterer we served mini beef wellingtons as an appetizer.  They were amazing.  After a bit of research, I purchased some puff pastry and beef tenderloin.  With a little experimenting I figured it out.
