LOVE! I bought filet mignon at our farmers market to make for my husband, and this recipe looked perfect for my first time with filet mignon. I realized I only had canned straw mushrooms after i had made up my mind, I was nervous, but the meal was delicious. Also I used trader joe's beef soup base instead of consomme. I served with Green Beans To Impress Recipe #37409. My husband gave this 6 stars out of five! Sauce had a very decadent flavor. Thanks Mimi!
