You just need to finish it a little longer in the oven... once the pastry is golden brown top it with some foil to prevent the pastry from overcooking. 35-40 minutes @ 425 for a 2 lb wellington will get you a more well done piece of meat. A meat thermometer really is a huge help with this recipe. you probably want to shoot for 145 degrees.
