    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    This has been my favorite dish in ALL food categories for some time now. Thankfully, I don't have a weight or heart problem...yet. ;o) I recommend using filet mignon and Italian cremini mushrooms as they are an integral part of the resulting flavor. I love the way the pepper is tempered by the cream sauce. Just typing this out has prompted me to make this again tonight. Let me know what you think!

      Wow ! Yum. Next time I am going to try this recipe with Flax Milk. I will use olive oil as well for flavor. I will also try it covered in butter and blue cheese which go great with beef. I don't eat much meat but this is how I like it and rare! Thanks for this recipe.

      Excellent. Subbed skim milk for cream so as was to be expected, my sauce was much thinner, but sooooo excellent! Loved it and so did hubby:)
