Individual Beef Wellington with Steamed Broccoli and Sliced Tomatoes

The beef is prepared in four steps. First, sear the filets in a bit of oil for 2 mins. per side. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. Second, in the same pan, add 4 oz. chopped mushrooms, 1 clove of minced garlic and 2T chopped shallot. Saute until the mushrooms have given up their liquid. Third, roll out a pie crust to about 1/8". Forth, spread some pate`on the crust, add some of the mushroom mix, place the filet on top, spread pate` on the top and add more mushrooms and seal the filet in the crust. Brush with some egg so that it will brown nicely. Place in a 450 degree oven for 10 for medium rare.
The broccoli is simply steamed until crisp tender. The tomatoes are served with sliced avacado and red onion and dressed with plain balsamic vinager.
Serve a big red wine like a cabernet sauvignon or merlot with this meal.
