Top Review by breezermom

I roasted some garlic and used it with freshly ground black peppercorns for the rub. I used laughing cow garlic and herb cheese for the cheese, and the sauce was very good with the tenderloin. I normally used a blue cheese sauce, but this was a fun change and made for a really quick and delicious meal. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR tag game.
