I thought this recipe looked good and relatively easy to try for a beginner like myself. Apparently the recipe calls for way too much cream. Also, the filet heats up the dough so much that the dough breaks. The cooking time is way too long for such a nice cut of meat. It ended up too dry, and that was when I had already decreased the time by 10 minutes.

With some changes, this turned out great! I cut back a little on the cream, cut the meat up and browned it in a pan, and threw the meat and sauce into a slow cooker for 4 hours or so until the meat was tender. Then I just placed the mixture on top of some store bought flaky biscuits. Tasted wonderful!

If you like your filet burned, this is your recipe. Why 2 1/2 cups of cream ?

This recipe gets three stars because I didn't follow the direction so I'll take part of the blame. Because of the previous review (thank you very much) I didn't use expensive tenderloin instead I use high quality sirloin. 2 1/2 cups of cream????I reduced that to 2/3 cup and still had a lot left over. Dividing the pastry in 3 8x8 inch squares made it really easy to tear and when you add the liquid and the hot meat that is what happened. The juice in the bottom of the pan resulted in a soggy bottom crust that wasn't very appealing. At 30 minutes the pastry was pale at 40 minutes the pastry was nice and brown but the meat was over cooked. The flavor was alright but I wish I'd broiled the steak and used that pastry to make dessert. I probably will not make this again and I'm really glad I didn't buy tenderloin.

I made this recipes after receiving it on my daily recipe email, it sounded too good to pass up. I am not sure what 2 1/2 cups of heavy cream was for, when I used less than 1 c. Also, tenderloin is to pricey to ever serve medium well. I pulled from the over after 30mns and it was already medium well, so if you make this recipe, make sure to check the temp. after 20mns. This recipe is a good concept, I will make many modifications next time I try it. (Can you tell I'm still upset after over-cooking the tenderloin?!)
