I had one smallish filet mignon in the freezer and searched for recipes so I could use it up. This is an adaptation based on what I had on hand! We enjoyed it, hope you do too! (The sun-dried tomatoes I were infused with Italian herbs. I would add some extra oregano and basil if using plain variety.)
