I love Filet Mignon, but not its price! While grocery shopping, I picked up a more affordable beef tenderloin tail. I brought it home and came up with this recipe. Now I cook it once a week, plus my husband loves taking the leftovers to work. —Linda Flynn Ellicott City, Maryland

"Wonderful recipe. Followed the recipe except: no mushrooms but I think they would be wonderful. Added a minced jalape?o, and a dollop of chili garlic sauce at the end because we love spicy. Served over brown jasmine rice, and it was great. Side dish was cakes with salt and rice wine vinegar."

"This is a very quick, tasty recipe. I will add more green onion to this next time and be a little heavier handed with the seasonings. Great for a weekday meal or even lunch."

"Pretty great recipe. I added a bit of powdered garlic and used coconut oil for the asparagus-- it still came out delicious, but I'd opt for a different oil next time."
