French Onion Beef Tenderloin for Two

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (49 votes)

We took the comforting flavors of French onion soup and turned them into an easy bistro-style steak dinner. Tender filet mignon gets smothered with sweet caramelized onions and topped by a crispy, Swiss cheese-covered crostini. Serve with green beans and smashed potatoes with buttermilk and chives.

Delicious Filet

My family LOVES this recipe! I've made it numerous times using both beef and venison. Quick enough for an un-hurried weeknight meal but fancy enough for company. We served it with a side salad and mashed potatoes. Also was out of the called for cheese and substituted mozzarella just as equally delicious!!

Easy to make while cooking your sides.
Its a keeper !!!! ... we allways did our filet mignon on the grill ..not anymore!!

We won't recommend this recipe... we want to keep it OUR secret !!

Very tasty,easy to prepare,make sure you have a bottle of wine to tag along
Happy couple
Good stuff!

Cooked green beans for the side... this was an awesome meal. The Swiss cheese really set off the bread... and the onions were sweet. Juicy filet. Would totally cook again!

Easy, not a lot of work; tastes great and doesn't take hours to prepare.
This is what it looked like. :)
Special Occasion Meal

I picked this recipe out for a valentine's day celebration and to my surprise before I had a chance to prepare it my boyfriend did all the work. It was fantastic. Tastes exactly like French onion soup but with the extra protein and flavor added by the steak. This will be a keeper recipe for romantic dinners. :)


Absolutely perfect. The onions were so sweet and the dish as a whole really did remind us of onion soup. The crouton on top was such a great idea - swiss cheese, YUM!! Would not change a thing.

easy, delicious, can't believe it's "diet" food.
