      This is obviously an indulgent recipe, but it really delivers. I was a little weary of the cooking method, but my filet was amazing. Nice crust on the outside, beautiful med-rare in the middle. The sauce is fantastic and the blue cheese topping really puts this in the orgasmic category for me. Rave reviews from everyone, this is awesome!
