Puree speed 10/ 1minutues season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until cooled and set.

To make the wellington, trim sinew and seal on all sides in a hot pan. Refrigerate until cool. Cover the meat in the pate and wrap with sheets of pasty, using egg wash to seal the meat and with having minimal patches of thick layers of pastry as this will be take longer to cook and be soggy rather than golden and crisp.

Bake in a 180 C oven for about 40- 1 hour to be cooked to medium use a meat thermometer for the best results and it will be best left to rest for at least 20 minutes (it will continue cooking in this time). Slice and serve.
