    Manami's Note:

    Found on Allrecipes; submitted by Sue Z."Delicious Filet Mignon stuffed with succulent crab, wrapped in bacon and topped with whiskey-peppercorn sauce. Time consuming, but just as good, if not better than any high-end restaurant recipe." Make it we did and it was awesome! We made a few slight changes; personal preference!. Make the sauce the day ahead, it is too time consuming and is best out of the way. However, it IS worth the effort! It was fantastic! ;)

      Tried this the other evening, it was excellent. The sauce took about 45 minutes to make, but WELL worth it. This is a kepper!
