Had this at a friends house a few years ago. To say it was amazing is like saying that the most beautiful woman in the world is just a pretty girl!! Our first attempt to make it ourselves failed miserably because we thought we could just buy any old beef tenderloin. The only one that worked for us was the one we got at Costco. When I first read that we had to add water to the pan, I thought that someone was kidding when they added this to the recipe - but the finished product is absolutely wonderful. No need for steak knives with this roast.
