I made this recipie once and then couldn't find it again so have been trying a different one. Finally stumbled on it again and glad I did. I like it better than the recent one I have been trying. Flavor is good and easy to prepare. I used basic flank steak but I imagine the filet mignon would be even better. I also used spinach tortillas because I couldn't find whole wheat ones.

- 2 filet mignon steaks (each 1 in. thick; about 1 lb. total)

- 1. Melt butter in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and pear. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar, turn heat to low, and cook until light brown, about 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and blue cheese.
