    Loved this recipe and it was easy to prepare since the popover mixture had to sit for 30 minutes before you could bake it.

    This was very good. I couldn't find filet on sale so got a porterhouse and I ate the filet and hubby at the strip. The sauce was really good, and the meat gets a nice crispy crust. The popovers were bland, though, which is why I gave this recipe only 3 stars. I served this with a broccoli/cauliflower medley.

    I made the beef, sauce and popovers this evening. RAVE reviews from my husband and not too labor intensive. I even managed to prep everything while my kiddo was sleeping. In fact, the popovers, which I feared would flop, turned out to be quick, easy and QUITE delicious. They will be part of our holiday meals moving forward. Love an easy bread as a side with flavor. The mushroom sauce was easy however I had to resort to a measurement help website for assistance with ounces. .5 oz of porcini mushrooms is roughly about 1 Tbsp. Since 1 mushroom can literally overpower a Tbsp measure, I used more but didn't need to as the cremini made for enough mushrooms. The porcini definitely helped with the broth. In my opinion (and I'll preface this comment with the fact that I like salty food), I would recommend adding a bit more salt to the sauce but you can always add later. Otherwise, EVERYTHING was fantastic. I added cauliflower and mustard green soup as a side and it was a great combo of flavors. Enjoy!

    I really didn't think that the popover's would work well since I grew up eating traditional yorkshire pudding but I was very surprised that they were quite good. Not as eggy or buttery though. I invented my own mushroom sauce and everything tasted in the end.

    This recipe was fantastic! The mushroom sauce was hearty and delicious while the popovers came out perfectly. BTW, another review stated that 1/2 ounce of porcini is equivalent to one tablespoon, and I would just like to clarify that this is not true. I found a bag of porcini at my market that measured half an ounce and came out to about 1/2 to 1 cup. Pounds/ounces measure weight and cups/tablespoons measure volume. Only rely on those estimates for liquid measurements (or if you know the density of the item being measured).
