Reviews for Peach-Glazed Beef Filets
"First time I saw this I had to do a 'Say What?' Turned out to be darned good. Just go light on the Glaze. "Less Ismore" sort of thng."
"The peach glaze a nice flavor to the beef. This was definitely very simple to make, I used it over grilled porterhouse."
"This was a very simple, yet tasty glaze for steaks. My husband said it's definitely a "keeper", although I wouldn't spend more than $15 paying for it at a restaurant. Good enough to make again, but not a "wower" for me."
