Filet Mignon

Recipe by Bec6206

Planning ahead (allowing it to marinate) makes this a super easy meal to prepare. Serve with baby new potatoes in chive butter, and basil sprinkled asparagus spears.

I made this for Christmas dinner for my husband and myself, and it was excellent - he said it was the best-tasting meal I've ever made! The marinade flavored the meat well and kept it very tender while baking. I baked two filets for an hour for well-done, and it was perfectly cooked and tender. The only substitution I made was beef stock in stead of the dry sherry. I served it with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes.
