A very nice and simple to prepare meat and potato dish. Definitely comfort food. I made half the recipe using the tail end of a whole tenderloin I'd saved in the freezer. While this part of the tenderloin has a lot of fat and silverskin woven through it, the bite size tenderloin pieces I cut from it were tender and perfect for this recipe.
