Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce
This was, quite simply, superb. I made the dish for a special occasion, and gave myself plenty of time to complete it, since I had read so many reviews that were critical of the time required. I think if you accept that it's time consuming right from the start, you'll be better able to appreciate it. I substituted shiitake mushrooms for crimini, because the crimini were unavailable, and I followed other suggestions to increase the amount of crab stuffing, using fresh (rather than canned) crab. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My guests were astonished at the quality of the meal.
I will make this again, when I have the time and a good reason.
