Reviews for Tender Stuffed Beef Tenderloin
"I have made this for years. It is a OFTEN requested menu item, for all occasions. I mainly use a venison loin and adjust proportions of other ingredients to the size of the loin used. "Try it, you'll like it"!"
"This was really good. The combination of cheese, spinach and ham with beef was fantastic. I don't cook well or often but my family loved this recipe. I will definitely make it again!"
