This can be done with pork tenderloin also, just cook 6 or 8 minutes, or until cooked through, when returning fillets to pan with sauce. Delicious either way. from Cooking Light

This was a nice and easy recipe. I didn't use a cast iron skillet, but I don't know if that mattered. I also didn't use fillet mignon but I will the next time! My meat was tough. It was a very tasty recipe. Thanks!
