Day #169 - Beef Tenderloin with Apricot and Olives


Tonight I tried a new recipe that I found on TastyKitchen.com: 

Beef Tenderloin with Apricot and Olives - http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/main-courses/beef-tenderloin-with-apricot-and-olives/

The description from the recipe site calls it "Tender chunks of beef tossed in a deliciously tangy sweet sauce."   I served it over a bed of orzo pasta.

My notes:  My beef didn't brown up very nicely, which is obvious by the icky-colored photo.   Also, I didn't cook down my sauce long enough so it was still a little thin and runny.   But the flavors were good.  I liked the bite of the garlic and olives against the sweetness of the apricot preserves.  I would try this recipe again.
