Filet Mignon prep: salt and pepper both sides of the filets. Sear beef in a hot pan (3 minutes per side). Remove from pan.

Puff Pastry Prep: Flour surface and roll out puff pastry to 1/4 inch thickness.
Spread duxelles evenly over puff pastry leaving a one-two inch border. Place filet in top, center section of the duxelles. Roll filet in puff pastry from end to end.
Cut off the two open ended sides as close as possible to the filet and tuck under so that the filet is sealed with pastry on all sides.
