  • 1/2lb of Baby Portobello Mushrooms 
  • 1 Shallot
  • 1 Red Onion

  • 1tsp. of Pepper
  • 2 Sticks Thyme 

 

Procedure 

  1. Add all ingredients in a food processor. 
  2. Blitz it up!
  3. Use the food processor until all ingredients are well broken down - you're looking for a brown paste like substance.
  4. Cook in a hot pan (about 6 minutes) - The reason you cook it is to release all the moisture, this adds to the flavir and keeps your Wellington crisp! 
  5. Add your favorite Cognac and cook for an additional two minutes.
