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.

This recipe packs so much flavor into a beautiful, healthy presentation. I love to serve it as an hors d'oeuvre or as the main dish when I have folks over. It's always a hit! I usually serve it with a little extra hoisin on the side. —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
Who says you can't have a taste of the tropics on a weeknight? "A good friend gave me this recipe a year ago and I have made it many times since then. My husband and three sons rave about it." – Kara Cook, Elk Ridge, Utah
In her home in Pine Beach, New Jersey, Jennifer Wickes serves this delicious dish often. "Try substituting chicken, shrimp or tofu for the beef, and add a healthy mix of water chestnuts, bean sprouts or nuts," she suggests.
"When my sister first served us this unusual medley, I couldn't believe how good it was because she had thrown it together so quickly," informs Laura McCarthy of Butte, Montana. "Sweet pineapple really adds to the taste."
My father worked for an airline in the 1960's, when I was a teenager, and my family lived on the island of Guam in the South Pacific. A friend of Mother's there gave her this wonderful recipe. We ate this delicious warm-weather dish often, and now I prepare it for my family.
