I overheard someone talking about this one and decided to try it. It's only a few ingredients, but it's so yummy! Toss some green beans in olive oil and garlic on a baking sheet and throw it in the oven for the last 15-20 minutes, and wrap some garlic bread in tinfoil and bake for the last 10 minutes, and you have a fabulous supper!

My favorite way to do the tenderloin ! I think it may be an old TOH recipe. This is just wonderful with fried apples on the side.

It's the onions that makes it special so be sure to take the time to caramelize them. Made as directed, and served with baked crisscross potatoes, and roasted baby eggplants. Pretty good for a simple recipe, quick and easy. Thanks for posting.
