Can I Brown Beef For Slow Cooking the Night Before

I would like to prep my Beef Wellington the night before. I would sear, cover with mushrooms, prosciutto the night before, refrigerate overnight then wrap in pastry the next day before cooking. Is this safe?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

See duplicate - the USDA recommends not to partially-cook beef, so just treat the browned beef as raw, sear it quickly, refrigerate immediately after searing, and cook it thoroughly the next day. – Aaronut Dec 24 '11 at 18:21

Yes, should be safe, provided your beef was fresh before preperation.
