I always play with recipes..so I added fresh green onions, chopped rosemary, a bit more garlic, sea salt and lots of cracked pepper. I served with a pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and fresh corn on the cob...Like Chef Michael Smith says...cooking without a recipe, or tweek the recipe...make it your own!!

What a Waste
Well, I ruined a perfect Filet Mignon with this boring bland sauce. It was definitely missing some ingredients (maybe wine, onions). Haven't have a chance to play around with it yet.
