Reviews for The King's Crowned Filets
"I loved this! I served it with grilled asparagus, rolls, and That Good Salad (recipe on TOH) and it was a fantastic meal that I'm sure will become a go-to for company. I did use 5 oz beef tenderloin filets wrapped with bacon, since it was what I had."
"Yummy! It was a great Valentine's Day treat."
