“My husband and I were at a wedding reception at a very posh country club. He was served the most marvelous fillet mignon there, I opted for the chicken. It was my mission then to find this recipe and make a duplicate. He only allowed me a bite of steak the size of a grape with a small amount of sauce on it (and that was grudgingly). The last place I thought I would find a good steak recipe was Cooking Light, but there it was! Now when we need to impress, we serve this recipe. It tastes like a dish you'd be served at a five-star Hotel.”
