Oh my was this good! DH has to have his portion of 'cow' every weekend and this seemed like a lovely dinner for a Saturday night. I made as directed and couldn't be happier with this dish! My asparagus cooked to crisp tender in just 5 minutes. The only embellishment I made was to add a bit more crumbled blue cheese just prior to serving. I loved the pan sauce and will use it for other cuts of meat as well. I think it would be very nice with pork chops. This will be made many times! Thanks so much for sharing it Sharon.
We made this as directed but used a grill pan to sear the meat, then added those juices to a saute' pan to make the sauce. The asparagus needed more like 15 minutes to steam but still remained crisp. All the flavors in this dish went extremely well together. Definitely company worthy, definitely elegant. Thank you so much Sharon, for posting this recipe. :)
Who am I to argue with the judges of the Georgia Beef Cook-Off? They're right: this is superb. The sauce combines well w/ the asparagus and the thyme-rubbed tenderloin steaks. And easy too--in every way a great dinner for company!
this is very good and easy if you cook everything on the bbq. i used strip steaks, grilled the asparagus, assembled and then just grilled for a minute for the cheese to melt. served the sauce , which i made indoors over, very very tasty.
The beef, asparagus and the cheese are a good combination, topped with the sauce it became special. I tasted the sauce and was not too sure about it, but when drizzled over the asparagus the flavor was excellent. I made an extra effort for the presentaion and served the steaks on a potato gallette. Thanks Sharon!
