      We used 2 single 5 oz. filets & pre-made phyllo dough for the pastry. We pan-seared the filets to a medium rare, instead of roasting in the oven. The outcome was great! The sauce was quick to make and DELICIOUS. We were amazed at how elegant yet simple this recipe was. Thank you for sharing a lovely recipe we will definitely use again.

      Had to use filet mignons instead of beef tenderloin; that being said the recipe is flawless. Made crust as directed and it came out great. Cooked steaks together in dough to try to replicate original recipe. Played with gravy since I didn't have the right amount of drippings, and that came out good.

      I initially tried this recipe with red wine vinegar (and my beef was chopped up fajita style) and thought it was scrumptious! I will definitely cook it regularly, but with the real stuff! My only tip would be to make sure you roll the dough out evenly and make sure it's thin. I'm not sure how this will turn out, but I'm going to see how a little beef gravy tastes mixed in with the meat before it's baked
