  3. Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
  4. Add the cream and blue cheese, bring to a simmer and cook until the blue cheese has melted and the sauce has thickened a bit, about 3-5 minutes, before setting aside.
For the beef wellington tarts:
  1. Heat the oil in an oven safe pan over medium-high heat, add the filets, seasoned with salt and pepper, and cook until caramelized, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  2. Transfer the pan to a preheated 400F/200C oven and roast until the desired level of doneness (130F for medium-rare), about 4-6 minutes, and set aside to rest for ten minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan over medium heat add the kale and cook until just wilted, about 2-3 minutes.
