This one is actually dad's recipe, I'm pretty sure. He's sent it to me separately and it's almost word for word.

I've made it. It's good. Mine unfortunately had a soggy bottom the first time. An addition I did was a thin layer of prosciutto underneath the beef tenderloin/filet as a barrier between it and the pastry underneath.
