    Method
    • Set your barbecue up for  roasting (in-direct method) at a high heat.
    • Place the butter and olive oil into a frying pan and place on a medium heat. Sauté the shallots and chestnut mushrooms for 10 minutes, until tender.
    • Drain the porcini mushrooms, finely chop and add to the frying pan.  Cook for a further 5 minutes, season with salt and black pepper to taste.
    • Remove from the heat and stir through the parsley and sundried tomatoes.
    • Sear the steak for 30 seconds, on each side.  Remove from the grill and allow to cool.
    • Roll out the pastry to approximately  2 x 25cm squares.  Reserve the pastry trimmings for decoration.  Place the steaks in the middle and top with the mushroom mixture.
    • Take all four corners to meet in the centre and pinch together to make a seal.  Brush with egg wash and decorate with the pastry trimming shaped into hearts.
    • Add to a grill tray, lined with parchment.  Place onto the barbecue over an indirect heat and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is cooked through and golden. Leave to rest for 5 minutes and serve.
