    Galley Wench's Note:

    This is Cook's Illustrated method of cooking a filet mignon. If you're cooking for someone who insists on well-done steaks, use a thinner cut of meat. I recently cut small steaks from a petite fillet and cooked in this manner and they were fantastic . . . so cute too!

      Delicious! Love the horseradish sauce, although I ended up with way too much. But I'm sure I'll find something to use it on! :) As DS said, what's not to like? Steak and bacon.....yum!
