1. Defrost the puff pastry according to the directions on the packet. Heat the oil in a frying pan, season the beef fillet with salt and pepper and brown the meat on all sides. Continue to braise for approx. 10 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
2. For the stuffing, squeeze the excess water from the bread roll, mix with the minced beef and fry gently in butter. Add the onion, parsley, cress, eggs, cream, sweet paprika, salt and pepper and mix well.
3. Roll out the puff pastry to a size big enough to wrap the beef completely. Brush egg white around the edges (approx. 1cm). Spoon just over half of the stuffing into the centre of the pastry, place the beef fillet on top of this and coat the meat with the remaining stuffing mixture. Wrap pastry up to make a parcel, seal well and place, sealed side down, on a baking tray rinsed with water.
4. Decorate the parcel with strips of pastry, brush with lightly beaten egg yolk and bake until golden.
