Beef Tenderloin Filets

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Simple. Elegant. Delicious. Great recipe for very special occasions. I serve with garlic mashed potatoes (or sometimes wild rice), green beans with cherry tomatoes (recipe on this site), green salad with sweet poppy seed dressing (my published recipe on this site), and homemade sweet dinner rolls (recipe on this site). Enjoy!"

FABULOUS! Easy to make too. I made no changes other than scaling the recipe back a little and using bacon-wrapped filets because that was all my grocery store had.
