Ingredients
  • 2 fillet steaks (about 175g each)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 375g pack Asda Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 75g Stilton cheese
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • Potatoes, to serve
Method
  • Rub the steaks with oil and season with black pepper. Heat a griddle pan. Add the steaks and fry on both sides to brown and seal; this is for medium rare. For medium to well done, griddle for 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a rack to cool.

  • Unroll the pastry and cut in half. Crumble the Stilton on top of each steak. Put each steak, Stilton side down, on a piece of pastry. Brush the pastry edges with water and draw up to form a parcel. Put on a baking tray with the join underneath. Brush with beaten egg and decorate with pastry leaves cut from the trimmings. Brush with beaten egg and chill for 30 minutes.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Bake the parcels for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the meat very pink.

  • Serve with mash, or, if you have time, try our recipe for creamy lemon potatoes.
