I have been to Brennan's ( to die for!!) I made this recipe without the added salt since there is salt in the butter and it was suggested by another reviewer. This came out wonderful. I used regular filet's ( no bacon wrapped) since this is what I had. I also flambe'd with a bit of brandy at the end...just for show Wonderful recipe

This recipe was WAY too salty. I should have known that 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt was too much. I had to throw the whole recipe away.
