I love beef tenderloin and the asian flavors in this peanut sauce sound really great. This is from the Very Virginia Junior League cookbook.

Excellent! Next time I would eliminate salt and/or use low-sodium soy sauce. A sprinkling of chopped fresh cilantro with the chopped peanuts is also very nice.

This was a great dish. After the terderloin was gone, I had some sauce leftover which was great over wild rice.
