  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, 1 chopped onion, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add egg, and mix well. Shape into 4 thick patties, not too large in diameter. Cook burgers on grill until brown.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute 1 chopped onion, and chopped mushrooms until brown and caramelized.
  4. Cut puff pastry into 4 squares, and roll pieces large enough to wrap burgers. Divide mushroom mixture into the center of each pastry, then top with burgers. Wrap pastry around burgers, and seal edges. Place parcels seam side down on a baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Serve with Red Grape Sauce.
  6. Meanwhile, make Red Grape Sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine grape juice, Worcestershire sauce, and bouillon. Mix the cornstarch with water, and stir into sauce. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened.

I love beef wellington, but this is a wonderful alternative. Thanks, Andy. I would recommend placing the parcels on a wire rack over another pan to avoid a soggy bottom. Great recipe!

I cooked my beef patties on the stovetop, seeing as how it's just a bit too chilly now to grill. I cooked them until they were browned, and just cooked enough to lift them without them crumbling...

This whole dish turned out beautifully. I think the person that said it was difficult to keep all of the ingredients in the puff pastry either didn't roll the pasrty out at all, or forgot to put...

Tried this without the sauce, realized it was too bland. Asked my husband to wait two minutes and whipped up the sauce. With it, this dish went from good to excellent!

needs the sauce, and good mushrooms and onion. Red wine works great in place of the grape juice. Flour the counter before using the pastry!!

Loved this recipe and my husband and kids loved it too. I did make the grape juice sauce and tasted it when it was done and really did not like that, so I chucked it and sauteed more onions and...

The first time I made the recipe as is except the sauce. For the sauce I used beef broth, red wine and worcestershire sauce and cornstarch. The second time I made it I added chopped green peppe...

This was very good! I had trouble getting the parcels to stay together but I think it was my own inexperience with puff pastry. The red grape sauce tasted so good on it!

This was a hit in our house. Hubby really liked it. Did it pretty much as it said. Used frozen sheets of puff pastry & it worked perfectly.

These are so good!! I didn't think the sauce was anything special and it definately doesn't NEED a sauce. I was trying to figure out how to use up ground meat I had in the freezer and still make...
