My beef fillet and Gorgonzola sauce is perfect for using those tail bits of fillet and magically transforming them into a rich and decadent supper dish. This is such an easy recipe to make and is my take on a classic beef stroganoff involving the addition of Gorgonzola to create a fabulously rich and luxurious meal. Perfect served on a bed of linguine or rice.
