I don't eat much red meat and this was just ok. My blue cheese turned bad, so I ended up using mushrooms and onions in balsamic vinegar as a topping. I reduced the sauce to a glaze and it was much better then I expected. If you love steak this is a good recipe, but since I rarely eat it I probably won't make this again.
Beef Tenderloin Steaks with Port Reduction and Blue Cheese
Add Brussels sprouts and wild rice to this entertaining-worthy dish. Use a large skillet to accommodate cooking the four steaks at once. If they're crowded in a small pan, the steaks will "steam," affecting the meat's texture.
