1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For crepes:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chives, minced
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup water
4 tablespoons butter, melted

For the Wellington:

Salt and black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 pound prosciutto

4.Roll out the puff pastry dough, and place beef in the center. Fold up, and seal all the edges, making sure the seams are not too thick. Place beef in a 9x13 inch baking dish seem side down, score a few slits in the top of the dough, and brush with egg yolk milk mixture.


5.Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 10 to 15 more minutes, or until pastry is a rich, golden brown. Set aside, and keep warm.
