This I did not make so I apologize to the author. To put anything more than salt and pepper on a very expensive piece of meat like tenderloin defeats the purpose of buying it in the first place. For us it is a rare occasion to have this meal and I just could not make myself try it and mask any of the wonderful flavors I knew would be coming to our table. Regrets!

Loved this ! the steak was tender and yummy. I even tried the potatoes. I had never bought store made, but this was a nice way to spice them up and make them good. I may try just doing this with homemade potatoes as well.

I had never eaten beef tenderloin, much less cooked it, but wanted to try something different. The meat is very expensive, but fortunately a local butcher sales it for half the price of the out-of-state steaks in the grocery store. The first time I followed the recipe and while it was very tender, it was way to spicy for our taste. I have since cut the seasonings in half and we absolutely love it. I haven't tried the potato recipe because I make homemade mashed potatoes and also I don't like sage. Sometimes we slice it and make cheese steak sandwiches with provolone cheese and mayonaise in a toasted sub roll - also very delicious. We have made this many times and will continue to do so. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This was a flavorful and easy recipe for tenderloin steaks. I did cut the spices and seasonings back by about 1/2 because our steaks were a little smaller than the recipe calls for (and I really wanted the sauteed onions to stand out) It only took about 9-10 minutes broiling on either side to reach a nice 'medium' stage. Very moist! My family LOVED it! I haven't tried the mashed potato part of the recipe yet, but this recipe is well worth a try just for the steak alone!

It was okay. The potatoes were really good. I'm going to keep that part of the recipe.
