Brown Sugar Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Cranberry Wine Sauce

Feast your eyes on this juicy cut of beef. They call it tenderloin because it’s the most tender meat you will find. It’s also the leanest, which I love because I can enjoy every bite. If treating yourself to a good piece of meat is not enough excitement, wait until you’ve tried it with a […]
