This was delicious. I used olive oil instead of vegetable. My husband loved the flavor

This was easy to prepare and was very good. Followed the recipe exactly, but did need to add additional liquid to the sauce when it thickened more than i liked (about 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth). Served with a salad and mashed potatoes (the sauce was wonderful on the potatoes). Some takeaways from making this the first time. I sliced the tenderloin into 1 1/2" medallions (the recipe does not specify). I minced my carrots but found they cooked a little quickly, a small dice would work better. Don't be tempted to add any salt to this, the bouillon adds more than enough to the recipe. The black pepper flavor was prominent (which I liked, but if you are not a fan of black pepper you may want to cut it back). The basil was nice but rosemary (i would guess about 1/2 tablespoon of dried) would be a good sub. Sliced mushrooms would be a nice change for the carrots if desired. Will be making this again, thanks for sharing the recipe Chippie.
