Top Review by Cook4_6

I have never had a filet mignon I did not like. This was good, but not my favorite preparation. Next time perhaps I will try it grilled like one of the other reviewers who rated this recipe outstanding -- that could be the differences. I liked the mixture of spices, and the onion topping.
